What more could you ask for?
How about a quadruple group of villains played by James Coburn, George Kennedy, Ned Glass, and Walter Matthau?
How about a tight, adult script that combines moments of romance, comedy, and terror?
How about Henry Mancini’s theme?
Directed by Stanley Donen and written by Peter Stone & Mark Behm, this is a wonderful movie to watch with a big bowl of popcorn and your current squeeze. If you’ve never been to Paris, you get to see a number of monuments as well as things like the inside of Metro stations and the underside of a theatre’s stage. If you have been to Paris, the scenes along the Seine or in the American Express office will look really, really familiar.
In either case, Charade will provide you with a delicious, delightful two hours.
