How to Steal a Million (1966): A Comedy w/Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole

An art forger (Hugh Griffith) has given the copy of a famous statue to a museum. Now his daughter (Audrey Hepburn) must secretly retrieve it with the help of a mysterious man (Peter O'Toole) in this delightful romantic comedy, How to Steal a Million (1966).

Eli Wallach is on hand as a gullible art collector and a rival love interest butting heads with O'Toole. Charles Boyer plays a man hot on the trail of the forger.

Known for its Givenchy ensembles, this film is a feast for the eye from the beginning. Not only are the stars impeccably dressed, the rest of the movie complements their fashionable world. There are paintings under the credit sequence, a lavish house and museum set and a lush and quirky score.

How to Steal a Million is a fine romcom for a rainy afternoon. Recommended.
