Charade: The Criterion Collection (Widescreen Edition) starring Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Thomas Chelimsky, James Coburn, Colin Drake Honest And Timely 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 arent 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 Donens 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 dont let us down. --Tom Keogh Stanley Donen did a fine job directing this sleek, romantic -thriller, and the pairing of Grant, and Hepburn was sensational, and though the movie may not quite equal Hitchcock at his best, it has enough twists, action, light romance, and ascerbic dialogue to keep things interesting throughout. It also has another fine Mancini score, and a cast to die for. It should be in any Cary Grant, or Audrey Hepburn collection.
