Most romantic films #7: Charade (1963)

Charade is a charming love story/mystery thriller… set in Paris. With Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. Hepburn’s clothes by Givenchy (of course, as he did all the clothing for Hepburn in her films).

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.
