a Daily Prompt: Caper

Cary Grant can certainly pull one of these off, but he is a reluctant traveller, eager to clear his name. The reference is, of course, to To Catch A Thief, a sexy mystery in which Grace Kelly is husband-hunting and thrill-seeking at the same time.

The caper, as it turns out, (SPOILER) is not Grant’s but one that frames him in a bad light. Under Alfred Hitchcock’s direction, Grant is nonetheless a daredevil, and Kelly is far from his willing moll.
