This romantic thriller is about John Robie (Cary Grant) who is a notorious but retired jewel thief or "cat burglar," nicknamed "The Cat," who now tends to his vineyards in the French Riviera. A series of robberies that closely resemble his in style leads the police to believe that the Cat is up to his old tricks again. They come to arrest him, and he adeptly gives them the slip. He immediately seeks refuge with his old gang from his days in the French Resistance, a group of ex-cons whose patriotic work led to grants of parole that depend on them keeping their noses clean. Bertani, Foussard, and the others are all under a cloud while the Cat is at large, and they blame Robie. Still, when the police arrive at Bertani’s restaurant, Foussard’s daughter Danielle (Brigitte Auber) spirits her old flame to safety. And as the film continues Jessie discovers her jewels are stolen, and Francie suddenly feels that Robie has taken advantage of her. The police are called and he must go back on the lam.
To catch the new burglar he stakes out an estate at night and finds himself struggling with an attacker who loses his footing and tumbles over a cliff. It is Foussard, and he does not survive the fall. The film won an Academy Award and was nominated in another two categories: Best Cinematography (Robert Burks), Best Art Direction (Hal Pereira, Joseph McMillan Johnson, Samuel M.
