How to Steal a Million returns William Wyler to the enchanting province of the Roman Holiday. Lensed in Paris, advantageous use is made of the actual story locale to give unusual visual interest.

Plot centers on a fraud in the art world via forging ‘masterpieces’. Based on [the short story Venus Rising] by George Bradshaw, the script twirls around Audrey Hepburn, daughter of a distinguished French family whose father, Hugh Griffith, is a faker of genius. She has given up trying to reform him, continuing only to hope he won’t get into too much trouble. Peter O’Toole is a private detective who specializes in solving crimes in the world of art, but whom femme thinks is a burglar after she discovers him in the family home in the middle of the night apparently trying to make off with a canvas.

Griffith is a particular standout as the elegant Parisian oddball with a compulsion to forge the greatest impressionistic painters.
