Storyline

Caroline DuLac, a baroness and concert pianist, steals three jewel-encrusted Faberge eggs from a San Francisco museum. The eggs were demanded as ransom for her kidnapped fiancé. She boards a plane for the Latin American city of Ladera, as per instructions, and is met by Mike Chambers. Caroline first believes that Mike is one of the kidnappers, until a mysterious man in a trench-coat tries to kill her, and Mike comes to the rescue. They are then both captured by a band of Mexican bandits, who also may or may not be part of the scheme. Written by alfiehitchie

Scrambled eggs from Faberge
2 July 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Audrey Hepburn's next to last project was this TV movie which is something of a homage to one of her classic screen roles from Charade. There's also a bit of Hitchcock's The 39 Steps involved here as well. Although I think Hepburn and her leading man Robert Wagner covered a bit more ground than Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll did.

Love Among Thieves begins with Audrey Hepburn joining the ranks of thieves by pulling off as instructed a caper where she steals three priceless Faberge eggs from a display case at a San Francisco museum. All as per instructions as they are the ransom for her kidnapped fiancé Patrick Bauchau.

The chase takes her to old Mexico and back to San Francisco where there seems always to be an ever helpful Robert Wagner constantly rescuing her and always with a different story about himself. There's also a nasty tempered man chasing them played by Jerry Orbach. His role model seems to be Wile E. Coyote. A bit of Tim Kazurinsky's Sweetchuk from the Police Academy films thrown in as well.

Hepburn and Wagner have some of that nice romantic and comedic banter that you never see any more in films. Of course we do find out exactly who's who and what their agendas are in the end. As if Audrey's would be anything but good.

Love Among Thieves is one for nostalgia lovers like me.
