Editor's Note
Lovely Reggie (Audrey Hepburn) is determined to divorce her wealthy, cold, and closed-mouthed husband, but someone throws him from a train before she gets the chance. Left penniless in Paris with police suspicion resting heavily upon her, Reggie soon realizes she's in serious trouble--her husband stole money from three unscrupulous men, and they want the money back. Charming and amusing Cary Grant, recalling his screwball comedy days while still remaining manly, comes to Reggie's aid. But he too has secrets and hidden loyalties. With the bodies piling up and the money nowhere to be found, Grant and Hepburn dash through Paris toward the startling solution.

Agatha Christie-like in its unexpected twists and colorful characters and shimmering with fun and passion, CHARADE is a suspense gem that deserves to be much better known than it is. The supporting cast, led by Walter Matthau, James Coburn, and George Kennedy, is terrific, the interaction between Hepburn and Grant is an absolute joy, and Stanley Donen's playful direction all combine to make this film a small classic.

Plot Summary
In this marvelous thriller starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, Hepburn returns to Paris from vacation to discover her husband murdered. Three men who attend the funeral begin stalking Hepburn, demanding to know the whereabouts of $250,000 stolen by her husband and the menacing trio years before. Protected only by a U.S. embassy man and the suave Grant, Hepburn must find the money before she is killed too. But can she really trust Grant, whose story and name change every day? Filled with twists and delectable chemistry between Grant and Hepburn, CHARADE delivers both passion and suspense as well as a sly sense of humor.
