The film, in which Grace Kelly fills her eyes with elegant elegance, bears Hitchcock's signature. In the production, where a retired jewel thief tries to prove his innocence, Grace Kelly plays a spoiled young woman trying to protect her jewels. The Monte Carlo road where Grace Kelly was driving in the chase scene is the road where she crashed and died in real life 27 years later.
