How To Steal a Million
Audrey Hepburn ■ Peter O'Toole
The daughter (Audrey Hepburn) of a wealthy Frenchman (Hugh Griffith) who creates counterfeit art learns her father is in danger of being exposed as a crook. She decides to steal the family's forged Cellini sculpture from a museum before experts can examine it and enlists a society burglar (Peter O'Toole) to help her.
How To Steal A Million is just plain hilarious, it's hysterically funny!
I first watched the movies with my family several years ago because it had Audrey Hepburn in it and sounded good. My entire family loves the movie! In fact, a few days ago when everyone else was gone Dad and I popped onto Netflix and were thrilled to find it there.
Audrey Hepburn did all kinds of movies, from comedy to drama to thriller/suspense, and this is one of her best comedy films. My Dad even says he thinks it was her best movie.
This is the only Peter O'Toole movie that I've watched all the way through, and no matter how many I see in the future I think this one will always be my favorite.
Audrey's innocence and Peter's dry humor really make this goofy comedy worth watching.
Another neat thing about this movie is watching Audrey Hepburn's crazy 60's wardrobe, all from Givenchy. It was the height of fashion, but those crazy glasses!
And even non car-enthusiasts like me can't help but be impressed with that Jag that Peter O'Tool drives.
This movie is a great comedy for spending an evening on the lighter side of larceny.
Note: This movie features some nudity in the form of Classic art, statues and paintings specifically. It is not really any more shocking than many TV commercials today.

Nicole Bonnet: I keep telling you, Papa, when you sell a fake masterpiece, that is a crime!
Charles Bonnet: But I don't sell them to poor people, only to millionaires.
Charles Bonnet: Don't you know that in his lifetime Van Gogh only sold one painting? While I, in loving memory of his tragic genius, have already sold two.
Simon Dermott: [reviving Nicole from her faint] I'm the one that's bleeding!
[Nicole describes the burglar to her Papa]
Nicole Bonnet: Well, it was pitch dark and there he was. Tall, blue eyes, slim, quite good-looking... in a brutal, mean way, Papa. A terrible man!
Simon Dermott: Why must it be this particular work of art?
Nicole Bonnet: You don't think I'd steal something that didn't belong to me, do you?
Simon Dermott: Excuse me, I spoke without thinking.
Simon Dermott: Why don't you wait till you get it home and steal it then? No muss, no fuss, just a nice clean inside job? I'd be happy to offer my services.
Charles Bonnet: American millionaires must be all quite mad. Perhaps it's something they put in the ink when they print the money.
[Evaluating Nicole's cleaning-woman costume]
Simon Dermott: Yes, that's fine. That does it.
Nicole Bonnet: Does what?
Simon Dermott: Well, for one thing, it gives Givenchy a night off.
Simon Dermott: [to Nicole, in the museum] Okay, you're the boss. Just do as I tell you.
