About the Movie
The first shot of Charade shows a pistol swinging ominously into a close-up - and Audrey Hepburn gets a squirt of water right in the eye. And so it goes: Charade is an elegant thriller that manages to spoof its genre while at the same time being uncommonly suspenseful. Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn are the ideal leads for keeping their cool under preposterous twists in a deadly chase through Parisian environs. The supporting heavies include James Coburn, George Kennedy and Walter Matthau. There are five corpses; the red-herrings are incalculable; the gowns are by Givenchy; the percussive score is by Henry Mancini and the point of the whole thing is style and wit for their own sake. And what better sake is there? Charade, in its own way, is one of the most radical and experimental films of the '60s.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Firsttime teaming of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, a natural, gives the sophisticated romantic caper an international appeal, plus the selling points of adventure, suspense and suberb comedy.
Fresh: Made when the studio system was on its last legs, Charade still feels fresh, quick-witted, nothing like the artificial, airless Hollywood pictures of its time.
Fresh: A terrifically entertaining comedy-thriller.
Fresh: A novel, auteur-driven film populated with reliably charismatic stars; even at the age of 50 it leaves most modern produce in the dust. It was also a hit. Five decades later, why has Hollywood not learnt their lesson?
BEST MOVIE EVER!
This is my alltime favorite movie. It's a mystery, comedy, romance...something for everyone. And so many stars...Audrey of course is at her best. And Cary Grant is so cool and charming. Take a chance...you won't be disappointed!
