CinematicSaturdays - Charade


Charade movie Audrey Hepburn | Audrey Hepburn and Carrie Grant in the 1963 film, "Charade"

Ah, yes. This couple.  And no, that picture does not count as a scene.  I just had to include it because I love it. 😉
Another “oldie” — released in 1963, when my parents were both under the age of eight — Charade is the only movie that Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn were ever in together.  This is a long-time favorite of mine.  Audrey Hepburn is a delight to watch and Cary Grant has always been a favorite of mine (you’ll likely see him fairly often on Cinematic Saturdays)  It never gets old, I never get tired of seeing it.  It’s full of suspense, mystery, murder, romance, and comedy… if you’ve seen it, perhaps you’ll understand my love of it.

Audrey Hepburn & Cary Grant in Charade

Oh, listen to the compliments flying between the two of them! 😉 These are two of my favorite lines from this movie — best, of course, when said in the appropriate voices.

~ Starring ~

Cary Grant as Peter Joshua, etc.
Audrey Hepburn as Regina Lampert

Walter Matthau as Hamilton Bartholomew
James Coburn as Tex Panthollow
George Kennedy as Herman Scobie
Ned Glass as Leopold W. Gideon

~ Storyline ~

Regina is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She meets Cary Grant who changes his name every 15 minutes or so and is interested in her husband’s money, which seems to have come from a WWII payroll he stole. His partners in crime are also very interested in where the money is, as he stole it from them as well. Everyone assumes Regina MUST know where the money is. The situation becomes more tense when the searchers begin turning up dead.
