Film Fireworks

I was out at one of those hip fusion restaurants the other day - you know, the kind with the giant flat screen tvs playing cool old movies sans sound - and was delighted to re-discover the wonders of Cary Grant & Grace Kelly in Hitchcock's fabulous 'To Catch A Thief" (1955).

The film is fantastic for its stars, its spectacular locations, and exquisite fashions. A real feast for the eyes. The film was also noteworthy for breaking taboo codes of sexual representation. Apparently Hitchcock defied the studio's mandate and opted to keep the 'overtly symbolic' fireworks scene in the final cut.
