How to Steal a Million Blu-ray Review

howtostealmilliontop-1024x576.jpg


The third collaboration between director William Wyler and star Audrey Hepburn, How to Steal a Million might not have the poignant effervescence of their Roman Holiday, but it’s a light and airy comic caper film with just the right touches of romance and nonsense.

I do wonder if this film was any inspiration for (or influenced) the film How To Beat The High Cost Of Living (1980) which came to Blu not too long ago.
Haven't yet seen HTSAM so I can't do a decent comparison at this time though I'll be looking to add HTSAM to my library.

Funny, I just watched these back to back more or less (watched how to beat... Monday night and how to steal... Tuesday night). Both are good comedic crime capers but the motives by the protagonists are defitintely different. Topkapi is another film in the same genre that is a lot of fun. All of these films in my opinion are very funny and well done. I recommend them all! I picked up how to steal a million during the last TT sale and I’m glad I did since it is very low quantity now.
