Audrey Hepburn plays a Parisienne whose husband is murdered and who finds she is being followed by four men seeking the fortune her late spouse had hidden away. Cary Grant is the stranger who comes to her aid, but his real motives aren't entirely clear--could he even be the killer? The 1963 film is directed by Stanley Donen, but it has been called "Hitchcockian" for good reason: the possible duplicities between lovers, the unspoken agendas between a man and woman sharing secrets. Charade is nowhere as significant as a Hitchcock film, but suspense-wise it holds its own; and Donen's glossy production lends itself to the welcome experience of stargazing. One wants Cary Grant to be Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn to be no one but Audrey Hepburn in a Hollywood product such as this, and they certainly don't let us down. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Cinema fans can spend no two better hours than listening to the DVD commentary track in which director Stanley Donen and writer Peter Stone reminisce some three decades after they made their 1963 comic thriller. Good friends since they made the film, Donen and Stone play off each other's memories about the production (which often conflict), spin marvelous stories about the stars, and display a whimsical sense of humor. As Criterion editions go, this one is a bit sparse on the extras, but it delivers the best transfer--by far--of the film. Due to a period when the film was part of the public domain, several inferior editions were made. This is the one to buy; the extra cost is worth it. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It has been said that Charade was the best Hitchcock-type film that Hotchcock had nothing to do with and it's true. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Thomas Ward
