Directed by Stanley Donen

United States 1963 113 mins. In English

Legendary director Stanley Donen takes on the Hitchcockian thriller (of sorts) with the madcap Charade, starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant as lovers-on-the-run from a handful of scheming grifters. After her ex-spy husband Charles turns up missing, Regina “Reggie” Lampert (Hepburn) becomes embroiled in international intrigue, tracked closely by ex-compatriots of Charles, who are all looking for clues to a hidden $250,000 gold stockpile that Charles double-crossed them to steal during WWII. Falling in with the charming Peter (Grant), Reggie must find a way out of her situation while adjusting to her newfound independence after an unhappy marriage.
