Plot  John Robie (Cary Grant) is a retired infamous jewel thief or "cat burglar", nicknamed "The Cat", who now tends to his vineyards in the French Riviera. The modus operandi of a recent series of robberies leads the police to believe that the Cat is involved; they attempt to arrest him, and he adeptly gives them the slip.

He seeks refuge with the old gang from his French Resistance days, a group paroled based on patriotic war work as long as they keep clean. Bertani, Foussard, and the others blame Robie while they are all under suspicion while the Cat is at large. Still, when the police arrive at Bertani's restaurant, Foussard's daughter Danielle (Brigitte Auber) spirits her old flame to safety.

Robie's plan is to prove his innocence by catching the new cat burglar in the act, so he enlists the aid of an insurance man of Bertani's acquaintance, an Englishman H. H. Hughson (John Williams), who reluctantly obtains a list of the most expensive jewels currently on the Riviera...
