The hoopla and angst of "Amerika" finally behind it, ABC gets back to Americana tonight with an old-fashioned, Hitchcockian movie with nothing more on its mind than entertainment.
And while "Love Among Thieves" (9-11 p.m., Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42) lacks the flair of the master, it nonetheless is a fast-paced adventure that makes for pleasurable viewing.
Among its biggest pleasures is Audrey Hepburn, making her TV-movie debut as a wealthy concert pianist who steals a set of precious Faberge eggs as ransom for her kidnaped fiance (Patrick Bauchau). She still has plenty of spunk--and needs it, for lifting the eggs is nothing compared to delivering them.
Writers Stephen Black and Henry Stern send Hepburn on a perils-of-Pauline journey from San Francisco to Mexico and back again. Along the way she encounters a bearded Robert Wagner as a roguish traveler who may be helping her or arresting her but who, you may be certain, is not who he initially says he is.
