Lot 101
An Alfred Hitchcock photographic archive from To Catch a Thief

Sold for US$ 2,805 inc. premium
An Alfred Hitchcock photographic archive from To Catch a Thief
Paramount Pictures, 1955. Comprising approximately 87 silver gelatin photographs (4 are color), the majority of which are 8 x 10 in. Some of the photos have informational snipes and stamps on the reverse. This archive features photos of Hitchcock directing, behind-the-scenes filming and on the set with cast and crew, scene stills, portraits of the cast members including Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, Jesse Royce Landis, and John Williams, and much more. In Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, Hitchcock had two of the most sophisticated, stylish, and high-toned leading players that any director could ask for; in fact, their combined beauty seems almost otherworldly when viewed today. They both were favorites of Hitchcock, and their on-screen chemistry leaves the viewer wanting more; unfortunately, it was their only film together. The plot centers around Grant, a former cat burglar who has mended his ways, who is tempted by Kelly, the bored, rich, and glamorous armchair detective who captures his heart.
