Audrey Hepburn, Charade (1963) starring Cary Grant and Walter Matthau

Charade is a 1963 American film directed by Stanley Donen, written by Peter Stone and Marc Behm, and starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. The movie also features Walter Matthau and James Coburn. It spans three genres : suspense thriller, romance and comedy.

Regina Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She meets Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) who changes his name every 15 minutes or so, and is interested in her husband’s money, which seems to have come from a World War II payroll he stole. His partners in crime are also very interested in where the money is, as he stole it from them as well. Everyone assumes Regina must know where the money is. The situation becomes more tense when the searchers begin turning up dead…

Charade is notable for its screenplay, especially the repartee between Audrey and Cary Grant, for having been filmed on location in Paris, for Henry Mancini’s score and theme song, and for the animated titles by Maurice Binder. Charade has been referred to as “the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made”. Because Universal Pictures published the movie with an invalid copyright notice, the film entered the public domain in the US immediately upon its release…
