5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Movie :) July 5, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I love this movie. It has everything: romance, comedy, quirkiness and a kissing-in-a-closet scene! Audrey Hepburn was as adorable and entertaining as ever, and this was the first time that I'd ever seen a Peter O'Toole movie and he was fabulous! He's extremely funny and pretty darn spunky! You could just instantly fall in love with him, the second you saw those bewildered round blue eyes peering over the top of the "Van Gogh" painting. I didn't find this movie boring for an instant and I loved watching them steal back the "Cellini" sculpture, using, amongst other things, a bucket, a magnet and a boomerang! I think that this is now my favourite Audrey Hepburn movie. They make an extremely likable couple and their exploits in "How To Steal A Million" are engaging and engrossing.

Format:VHS Tape
Charles Bonnet, Nicole Bonnet's incorrigible father, makes a living forging long-lost masterpieces and then selling them at auctions or to private collectors, such as American business magnate David Leland. Bonnet's quite a character and is an artist, albeit a forger, living the moment, but also being the artist. When he paints a Van Gogh, he IS Van Gogh. Nicole is exasperated, worried that he'll be caught and sent to prison. Charles' flippant response is "The trouble is, you're so honest." So when he authorizes the loan of the prize of his collection, the Cellini Venus, a copy of it sculpted by her grandfather which her grandmother posed for, Nicole thinks her father has flipped his wig. It is worth a million dollars--hence the title.
What Nicole dreads the most occurs when the museum announces that one Professor Bauer will be conducting tests to determine the statue's authenticity. To that end, Nicole enlists the aid of Simon Dermott, a burglar she caught in her father's house trying to steal a Van Gogh (fake, of course), to steal her father's sculpture to save him from being jailed for fraud. She doesn't tell him the real reasons, of course. Dermott thinks it's a crazy idea, given the high-tech security devices and the numerous police detail milling around the museum, but combined by Nicole's persistence and her charm, finally gives in. But just what does he hope to accomplish with a toy boomerang?
The actual heist and scenes in the museum are worth waiting for, as that's where the exciting parts are. The cramped quarters in the broom closet underlines the tension of two people scared that they'll be caught, although it furthers the budding romantic storyline. And Dermott's ingenuity is well demonstrated. As he says, "wait for normal human reaction.

4.0 out of 5 stars So THAT's what all the fuss over Peter O'Toole's about! December 11, 2004
Format:DVD
This movie I give a solid four stars, but Peter O'Toole gets five because it's the most I could give. (Hey amazon, how about a little room for upward adjustment under extenuating circumstances like these?)

I'm an Audrey fan and she's her usual delightful self in this movie, no longer the ingenue but every bit as lithe and fetching as ever. She was a dazzler, but in Peter O'Toole she met her match. He is something else -- the Jude Law of his day, I suppose! (The highest of high compliments I give). In "How To Steal A Million" O'Toole is suave and self-assured but never arrogant ... spectacularly good looking (hey, it's not his fault) ... witty but flawed, not what he seems and in the end, you're glad of it. He can burgle my objects d'art any day!

The movie also has that very "1960's" look and feel to it that allow you to time travel, but not so far back you feel as though you've been whiplashed when it ends. The '60's were in many ways more modern than the '70's, and played against the backdrop of Paris those burgeoning modern sensibilities find an excellent foil. Audrey is her usual "au courant" self, except for one scene in which she has to play a cleaning lady. Like Liza Doolittle, she would shine through a burlap sack.

O'Toole and Hepburn are very, very winning here. The assorted cast of characters are daffy but mostly harmless, and if I'm not completely mistaken, the movie does poke gentle fun at the French. (Not that terribly difficult to do, but then again we re-elected ... oh, never mind).

Was there ever another actress to compare with Audrey Hepburn? She combined all the ideal qualities of what a skilled, beautiful, and totally charming actress should be in the one gorgeous package. Indeed in William Wyler's sophisticated heist film "How to Steal a Million",she has never been more gorgeous and appealing while displaying that totally unique and special talent that was solely her own and has never been duplicated by another actress.
Released in 1966 at the height of the "mod" period, "How to Steal a Million", in alot of ways is very much of it's time and this probably explains why this film is perhaps not as well known as other films of both Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole. This is unfortunate as the pair make a superb romantic comedy team and combine excellently in this slick and very chic story set in the most beautiful of cities, fashionable Paris. "How to Steal a Million", tells the story of Nicole Bonnet (Hepburn) who is the glamourous and very mod daughter of art collector Charles Bonnet (Hugh Griffith is a delightfully eccentric performance) who is what could be described as a lovable rascal and spends his time forging great art which he then sells to unsuspecting but wealthy art enthusiasts. Complications however arise when one of Monsieur Bonnet's "masterpieces", a statue of Venus supposedly carved by famed Italian artisan Cellini in the sixteenth century, but in reality a modern work by Nicole's grandfather, is put on display in a Paris Museum. The problem however here is that for insurance purposes the work must be inspected by a world famous expert on authentic works of art and their dating which would threaten to expose Ms. Bonnet for the fraud that he is,lovable or otherwise!
