Product Description

Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole star in this classic caper comedy. The daughter (Hepburn) of an art forger (Hugh Griffith) hires a burglar (O'Toole) to help her in a multi-million dollar art theft from a Paris museum. What she doesn't realise is that the man she has hired is in fact a detective who is desperate to arrest her father...

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet, stylish romantic comedy 24 May 2008
Format:DVD
I first saw this film on sky recently and loved it! The only other Audrey Hepburn Film i'd seen was of course, Breakfast At Tiffanys, and i'd never seen Peter o'Toole in action as a young man, only as the old man i know him as today. Im a sucker for romantic comedys and this was right up my street. The storyline being, Audrey Hepburn is a heiress who lives in Paris with her father who is a master art forger, as was his father before him, and one night, home alone she hears a burglar downstairs. She investigates and finds a rather dapper Peter o'Toole attempting to steal one of her father's Van Gogh. After injuring him with her fathers pistol, she finds herself talking to him and discovering he's very charming! So charming in fact she ends up driving him home! Soon After, her father sells a "priceless" statue to a museum and its only after its taken both Audrey and father find that the museum are going to do test on the piece, which of course be discoved as a fake and the rest of his "collection" will be under suspicion. Audrey decides the best thing for them to do is to try and steal it back from the highly guarded museum and theres a certain gentleman she know's who's just right for the job....
Audrey Hepburn is cute and quirky as the heiress and Peter o'Toole is very handsome and very funny, clearly enjoying himself. There were a quite a few moments that had me laughing out loud. If your a fan of romantic comedy's, this ones for you.

This flm has to be one of Hepburns' most classiest capers, alongside such gems as Paris When It Sizzles & Charade. Her hair barely moves a strand out of place even whilst she undergoes some of the most cramped conditions of her acting career!
Peter O'Toole, (elegantly dashing when not decked out in his Lawrence of Arabia garb) is perfectly cast as a fraud investigator in the art world who turns crook to win the heart of the daughter (Hepburn) of the fraudster he is currently investigating.
The costumes are chic, the wit finely tuned, the plot enjoyably absurd & the growing attraction between the two main characters builds to a wonderful finale in a broom closet, of all places!
This is Hepburn at her comedic best & O'Toole shines through as a wry burglar with a soft heart for a suffering dame!
Watch it over & over, with or without the entire family & I guarantee you cannot fail to thoroughly enjoy yourself each & every time...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Movie :) 5 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I absolutely love this movie. It's a perfect combination of romance, comedy and quirkiness. Besides, who could fault a movie that sees its stars kissing in a closet surrounded by frantic police? "How To Steal A Million" was entertaining, engrossing and endearing from start to finish, and it is definitely a movie that could be watched again and again. Audrey Hepburn was as adorable as ever, a perfect combination of deceptively innocent wide eyes and sweetly sarcastic remarks. This was the first time that I'd ever seen a Peter O'Toole movie, but I hope that it won't be the last. You could instantly fall in love with him from the second you saw those bewildered round blue eyes peering over the top of the "Van Gogh" painting. He is very funny in the film, and pretty darn spunky too! They make a very likable couple, and I didn't find one moment of this film boring. I loved watching them rob the museum, equipped with, among other things, a bucket, a magnet and a boomerang! This is a fabulous movie - I think it's my new favourite Audrey Hepburn movie - and I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever, Charming and Cheerful 8 April 2009
Format:DVD
To begin with, the casting is good in this Hepburn film, in the sense that Charles Boyer, O'Toole, and Hepburn all play very well, all the other characters play adequately, but the film is fundamentally about O'Toole and Hepburn's relationship. Ms. Jackson's review summarises the plot well, so I shan't go into detail about that, but, having seen a few Hepburn films, I would certainly say that this is one of my favourites.

The film is charming all round, and there are some scenes which are very cleverly done and impressive. Well directed by Wyler, a favourite director of Hepburn's, and one senses the light atmosphere on set radiates through the camera lens onto the screen. The relationship between O'Toole and Hepburn takes a somewhat sudden turn to amourousness, and it all happens rather fast, but this is characteristic of older films, and is part of the quality which makes films like this so light and romantic. If four and a half stars were possible, I would certainly grant them.

Also, if you are confused by the fact that this film has been tagged on Amazon with 'lesbianism', 'teachers', and 'gay interest', this is most likely a mistake by reviewers, of this film with another Hepburn filmThe Children's Hour [DVD] [1961] which is about lesbianism and features two female teachers (Hepburn playing one of them)... 'How to Steal a Million' is however, simply a romantic comedy set in Paris, with no teachers, and no references to lesbianism... Don't worry, you are looking at the film correspondent with this review!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, brilliant caper. 30 Jun 2005
By Puella
Format:DVD
This film shapes the ideas for heists to come. You'll be surprised until the end. It's all the 60's films put right in one go.
It's fast & slick. And while the wardrobe's dated, I think this film never really dates.
With a surprising plot, Audrey Hepburn in top to toe Givenchy, and Peter O Toole for eye candy - There's nothng wrong!
The subplot is dire, but thankfully only takes up a few minutes of screen time, so don't worry.
The rest is brilliant.
