John Robie, a former cat burglar known as "The Cat", is trying to avoid getting blamed for jewelry thefts he didn't commit.
He convinces an insurance agent to give him a list of his richest clients to catch the real thief himself. One of those clients is a very rich lady with a very pretty daughter, Frances, who is very intrigued by the handsome cat burglar.
Then there is Danielle, the daughter of a man who used to work with Robie, who is just as intrigued.
John: Say something nice to her, Danielle.
Danielle: She looks a lot older up close.
John lets out a groaning sound.
Frances: To a mere child anything over 20 might seem old.
Danielle: A child? Shall we stand in shallower water and discuss that?
P.S. To be honest, I'm intrigued as well ... I mean, Cary Grant is playing Robie, and by now you should know how much I adore him.
