How to Steal a Million ★★★

A romantic comedy stars Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole as an art forger’s daughter and a burglar who carry out the theft of a small statue from a Paris museum. Hepburn is desperate to take back the statue. Her father, Hugh Griffith, has lent the statue to the museum. Although the statue was supposedly sculpted by Benvenuto Cellini in the 16th century, it was actually sculpted by Hepburn’s grandfather. The museum is planning to carry out a scientific examination to authenticate it. Once the forgery is discovered, all Griffith’s forgeries will be uncovered.

Hepburn and Griffith had considerable skills and experience with comedy, more than O’Toole, who compensates by mugging and trying to look cute. Hepburn and O’Toole spend a considerable amount of screen time in a small closet as they await the opportunity to remove the statue. Romantic interactions are plentiful.
