A novel, auteur-driven film populated with reliably charismatic stars; even at the age of 50 it leaves most modern produce in the dust. It was also a hit. Five decades later, why has Hollywood not learnt their lesson?

It's glossy, charming, silly, and far too self-aware to be at all thrilling.

Firsttime teaming of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, a natural, gives the sophisticated romantic caper an international appeal, plus the selling points of adventure, suspense and suberb comedy.

even though the age difference is kinda weird the romance works

Donen's typically slick comedy thriller, ingeniously scripted by Peter Stone, is a mammoth audience teaser.

Stanley Donen's stylishly elegant, largely entertaining romance-thriller teams Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn (then at the height of their careers) for the first and only time.

I tell you, this light-hearted picture is full of such gruesome violence.

The star power of Cary and Audrey is electrifying in this great comic thriller

An appealing hybrid of romantic comedy and spy thriller. It's one of the best Hitchcock films that Hitchcock had nothing to do with.

Charade is part thriller, part comedy and part old-fashioned romance, and classic-movie lovers will find it irresistable.

Often described as “the best Hitchcock movie Hitchcock never made,” Charade stars Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn in a sparkling thriller with overtones of screwball romantic comedy — or is it the other way around?

The sexual chemistry between Hepburn and Grant, when set against Charade's tumultuous backdrop of shifting identities, makes this movie an enduring favorite.

Everything about it is a little bit cleverer and a little bit better than it has to be. Thanks must be paid to both Donen and screenwriter Peter Stone.
