                                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.
