"Love Among Thieves" was a made-for-television romantic-adventure motion picture that was produced by the ABC network in 1987.

The film starred Audrey Hepburn as the Baroness Caroline DuLac who finds herself involved in a jewel heist scheme with Mike Chambers (Robert Wagner), a con man who leaves her wondering who to trust. Meanwhile, the couple are pursued by Spicer (Jerry Orbach), a hired thug assigned to retrieve the loot.

"Love Among Thieves" is notable for several reasons. It was the first and only made-for-TV film in which Hepburn ever appeared (although she had done some live drama productions in the 1950s). It was also the last film in which she took a starring role (her next, and final film performance in 1989's "Always" was a cameo); it is also the first Hepburn film since 1976's "Robin and Marian" in which she is not part of a large ensemble cast. The film contains a number of intentional references to Hepburn's earlier films, mostly in dialogue, although the basic plot of the film borrows from her 1960s films "Charade", "Paris, When It Sizzles" and "How to Steal a Million". The film contains her final on-screen kiss (with Wagner).

The ending of the film left the door open for either a sequel or possibly even a series, but neither eventuated. Reportedly, Hepburn donated her salary to UNICEF.Fact|date=February 2007

As of 2006 it is one of the few Audrey Hepburn films not officially available anywhere on DVD.
