Starring Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, James Coburn, George Kennedy, Walter Matthau
Enchanting. Sparkling. Suave.
Two of classic Hollywood’s greatest stars pair, with Audrey Hepburn playing Regina Lampert, the widow of a man who stole a fortune during the war. Her husband’s old partners in crime come calling, betrayed and left out of their cut, to follow Regina, believing that she knows where the money is hidden. Cary Grant plays the mysterious and charming Peter Joshua. Regina quickly falls in love with the man, but can she trust him? Excellent script, full of snappy lines, and romantic patter. Also an excellent whodunnit, an excellent romantic comedy, and an excellent thriller. Charade works tremendously on all levels.
