the end of an era
- dpn letta
Major misfire for Wyler,Hepburn, Wallace and Griffiths.For Wyler, for allowing Griffiths to give a performance bordering on insanity, for Hepburn, on the cusp of uttering breathless pa-pahhhhhhhhs when speaking to her father, sound ridiculous... while her father chews scenery and channels Peter Sellers, for Wallace, whose character is important to the script, but seems to be a part of another film.The only one that fares well is O'Toole,, still blue-eyed and pretty before booze took over. His grace and wit are appropriate and well presented. The overall look is classy, but for too many back projected scenes, which suggest that there was a bit of post production effort given to making the plot more plausible.The wardrobe was extravagant right down to the char-woman drag Hepburn wore, but overall, it might have overly extravagant, serving as a distraction from the flow of the entire film.Fortunately,, this wasn't Hepburn's swan song. She made a major impact in 1969 playing a middle class woman who happened to be blind. Another Academy nomination for that, and a few years later, a brilliant performance in Robin and Marian secured her place in the annals of Hollywood history.
Love this movie

How to Steal a Million came along during an era when the world was upside down. Having something light and breezy to view for two hours was a pleasure. The gorgeous clothes by Givenchy, the handsome Peter O' Toole. Audrey. Not everyone wanted to be reminded of the war in Vietnam. We had enough of the protests and the mess politicians were making of the world. Certain reviewers liked nothing unless it had gore or "relevance". Having a souffle' like this was appreciated. The secondary characters were delightful. The French character actor Moustache who did the bit with the wine bottle was so funny. Eli Wallach delivered another fun character. Watch it you will have a good time.
How To Steal A Million
- Michael Whitty
William Wyler's "How To Steal A Million" is a good lighthearted look at how to get into a Paris art museum and steal a million dollar sculpture. Audrey Hepburn is the daughter of an art forger and Peter O'Toole is a detective who specializes in finding art forgeries. Together they have to steal back her dad's sculpture which has fooled experts and is on display in the museum. A good storyline along with a John Williams music score when he was up and coming in the 60s gives "How To Steal A Million" an entertainment edge.
How to Steal a Million
- Bruce C
Delightful movie. Serious-yes, comedy-yes, quirky-yes dramaesque-yes.Audrey Hepburn dressed to the nines, Peter O'Toole dashing as ever.Hugh Griffith with his usual clever disposition, and Eli Wallach coming up short once again in the pursuit of ill gotten gains! Hepburn is enchanting when she rolls her eyes for a keep sake memory of her and O'Toole's hiding place in the closet under the stairs -- watch for it. Acting is superb. Jacques Marin adds to the legitimacy. Some great scenery of Paris in the 70's.
A Wonderful Reminder Of Real Talent
- Douglas MacKinnon
This film clearly demonstrates why the acting of today falls far short of the bar set by Hepburn and O'Toole in this delightfully scripted caper flick. It should be required viewing at all film schools.
How to Steal a Million
- Dashiell Barnes
A charming, but forgetable romantic comedy. Hepburn & O'Toole don't have the greatest chemistry & the only character in the film I enjoyed was the drunken security guard. The beautifully made paintings & locales are visual stunners. Wyler made a film that wasn't as funny as it should have been & it needs improvement. I give it a 2.5/5.
A must see before you die!

A must see for any Hepburn fan.
- Christopher Morley
Peter O'Tool and Hepburn are delightful together in this frothy, 60's romantic comedy. Hepburn never looked more stunning. She can wear the designer Givenchy like nobody's business. I loved this film.
