  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...The best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never made: posh, witty, with [Grant] skating deliciously on the edge of absurdity..." -- Rating: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "It's sophisticated, tasty, and a bit bizarre....The thrills are consistent..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[E]njoy Peter Stone's witty, suspenseful script and the zippy Grant/Hepburn banter."
