How to Steal a Million (1966)
How often do you get Audrey Hepburn and art crime caper in the same movie? The outcome is a lot of fun. It's almost a comedy of errors by the plot alone - a forged statue is loaned to a museum only for the forger to realize that he's about to be found out, so his daughter and an assumed art thief plot to steal it back. Peter O'Toole and Audrey Hepburn are adorable together and the actual heist is great fun to watch. I'm not totally sold on the whole magnet-through-the-wall trick or the thing with the string and the key to unlock a door from the other side, but hey - it's a movie.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
