Overview

In this elegant "caper" film, Audrey Hepburn stars as the daughter of a wealthy Parisian (Hugh Griffith), whose hobby is copying famous works of art. His replica of a famed Cellini sculpture is inadvertently displayed in an art museum, and he begins to worry that he'll lose his reputation once the experts evaluate the statuette. Audrey decides to rob the museum, and hires a burglar (Peter O'Toole) for that purpose. But the burglar is really a detective, who has every intention of arresting Audrey and her father when the deed is done. All style and little substance, How to Steal a Million is consummately acted by the stars, but the film is stolen hands-down by a "double take" reaction from French comic actor Moustache. The film was originally titled How to Steal a Million Dollars and Live Happily Ever After, which gave the whole game away and thus was pared down before release.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Heist caper comedies are a special breed, and while How to Steal a Million is certainly not the finest of them, it may very well feature the most engaging star coupling. Certainly Million needs the star wattage that Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole provide in abundance, for left to its own devices it would be significantly less enthralling. The biggest problem is that the film is a good 20 minutes too long and that it takes far too long to get to the heart of the story; the entire subplot with Eli Wallach could have been excised from the screenplay and the little that was lost would have been made up for by a film that moved along at a brighter pace. Part of the blame rests with director William Wyler, whose work here is certainly good but is also clearly not his best; a stronger hand on the helm was needed to trim the completed picture. Still, this matters little once the film actually starts concentrating on the scheme, and its far better for the film to drag too much at the beginning than at the end. Besides, as long as Hepburn and O'Toole are around, no one needs to pay too much attention to the fluffy script. They're such incredibly beautiful people and have such unmatched charisma, both separately and together, that we're quite ready to forget what they're saying and just listen to the way they say it and how they look when they're saying it. It doesn't hurt that Hugh Griffith is also on hand to turn in a marvelous supporting performance, and it really doesn't hurt that Hepburn gets to waltz around in a number of stunning Givenchy outfits. Million is not a great film, but it's a perfectly charming way to waste a couple of hours.

    A Classic

    This movie is one of my all time favorites and stands the test of time. The cast is all star. It is a fun, fantastical romp through a fast paced, exciting museum heist story. It grips you right from the start and never stops. The characters are funny and loveable, even the bad guys are good guys. The dialogue is snappy and sharp. And then there's Ms. Hepburn wearing classic Givenchy. Add Peter o'Toole's beautiful eyes and sexy mouth, and you have a great modern day fairy tale. A wonderful way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon. I've watched it over and over - - it never gets stale.

    Fantastic

    This is one of my favorite movies. The story is great, and the acting is fantastic--not to mention the clothes, makeup, setting, and the famous Jaguar. This movie has it all.

    Quite a slice...

    This film is great for an evening of light comedy made with great style. It's not Audrey's best film, but it's fun to watch and the the visuals are nicely done. Cars, money, art theives and a quirky family situations are always good cinema!

    Hepburn and O'Toole are delightful together.

    Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole make an engaging pair of respectable thieves out to pull a heist at a Paris museum. This sophisticated 1966 comedy features an enjoyable Eli Wallach and Hugh Griffith on hand to steal scenes from the two leads. Add to it a sparkling score by John(ny) Williams, a witty Harry Kurnitz script and stylish William Wyler direction. Most of the fun revolves around the couple's efforts in getting a phony Cellini sculpture out of the maximum-security museum. Audrey is at it again, dressed to the nines by Givenchy, bejeweled by Cartier, terribly chic and terribly anxious to protect her irrepressible old forger of a father (Griffith). The theft itself is ingenious, on par with such memorable films as "Rififi" and "Topkapi" and there are assorted breathtaking Panavision scenes in and around Paris for the benefit of those who can't visit the fabled city in person this season. Later that year, Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine would attempt a similar touch of larceny in "Gambit". [filmfactsman]

    Laugh until you hurt

    This movie will make you laugh till you hurt. It is funny, an interesting story, and wonderfully filmed. It is my favorite movie and not, just because Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress.

    Blue Eyes

    This is one of my absolute favorite Audrey Hepburn movies of all time, and Audrey Hepburn movies are my favorite movies! This movie is hilarious and clever, and makes anyone want to become a thief! I think everyone would enjoy this movie--it is a marvelous movie to relax when you are stressed out and need a break. It is ESPECIALLY grand because of Peter O'Toole's beautiful blue eyes.

    Fantastic Film

    ''How to Steal a Million'' is a great little film. I can't believe that the official reviewer (above) would say that it contained little substance-- especially when considering some of the films produced today.
