A retired jewel thief sets out to prove his innocence after being suspected of returning to his former occupation.
On September 14, 1982, Princess Grace Kelly was killed in an automobile accident in Monaco, supposedly on the same road as her famous chase scene in this movie, and not far from where she had a picnic scene with Cary Grant. She was fifty-two-years-old, with the official story being that she lost control of her car after suffering a stroke while at the wheel, but it is widely believed that her 17 year old daughter Stephanie was in fact driving recklessly and lost control of the car, result in a crash and Grace dying for her injuries.
I've never caught a jewel thief before. It's stimulating. It's like... It's like...
John Robie: Like sitting in a hot tub?
When our heroes watch the fireworks display from a hotel room, no light from the fireworks is reflected on any of the surfaces in the actual hotel room, despite the fact that it is a massive light display and they are watching it in the dark (because it's just a rear projection).
The opening title sequence shows the window of a travel agent, with the text of the titles superimposed. The bottom of the window is not quite horizontal because the window is seen from a slight angle to perpendicular. The text of the titles is given slight parallelogram distortion so the bottom line of text is parallel to the window-sill, and therefore it is not horizontal and parallel with the film frame.
