A terrifically entertaining comedy-thriller. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A novel, auteur-driven film populated with reliably charismatic stars; even at the age of 50 it leaves most modern produce in the dust. It was also a hit. Five decades later, why has Hollywood not learnt their lesson? Full Review

Donen's typically slick comedy thriller, ingeniously scripted by Peter Stone, is a mammoth audience teaser. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It's glossy, charming, silly, and far too self-aware to be at all thrilling. Full Review

Product Description:

Lovely Reggie (Audrey Hepburn) is determined to divorce her wealthy, cold, and closed-mouthed husband, but someone throws him from a train before she gets the chance. Left penniless in Paris with police suspicion resting heavily upon her, Reggie soon realizes she's in serious trouble--her husband stole money from three unscrupulous men, and they want the money back. Charming and amusing Cary Grant, recalling his screwball comedy days while still remaining manly, comes to Reggie's aid. But he too has secrets and hidden loyalties. With the bodies piling up and the money nowhere to be found, Grant and Hepburn dash through Paris toward the startling solution.

Agatha Christie-like in its unexpected twists and colorful characters and shimmering with fun and passion, CHARADE is a suspense gem that deserves to be much better known than it is. The supporting cast, led by Walter Matthau, James Coburn, and George Kennedy, is terrific, the interaction between Hepburn and Grant is an absolute joy, and Stanley Donen's playful direction all combine to make this film a small classic.

Plot Synopsis:

In this marvelous thriller starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, Hepburn returns to Paris from vacation to discover her husband murdered. Three men who attend the funeral begin stalking Hepburn, demanding to know the whereabouts of $250,000 stolen by her husband and the menacing trio years before. Protected only by a U.S. embassy man and the suave Grant, Hepburn must find the money before she is killed too. But can she really trust Grant, whose story and name change every day' Filled with twists and delectable chemistry between Grant and Hepburn, CHARADE delivers both passion and suspense as well as a sly sense of humor.


Production Notes:

  • Based on the story "The Unsuspecting Wife" by Marc Behm and Peter Stone. Marc Behm's EYE OF THE BEHOLDER was made into a film in 1999.

Charade Movie Lover: from CASTLEGAR, BC CA -- November, 9, 2016

Audrey Hepburn is a class act in this movie. She is such
a natural actress and plays her part with such ease. The rest
of the cast are well known actors and Cary Grant is
delightful as well. A few comedic lines were well inserted
in the story line keeping the flow of the initial movie running
very smoothly. A delightful watch!
