Charade [1963]

“Marriage license? Did you say marriage license? Oh I love you Adam, Alex, Peter, Brian, whatever your name is. I hope we have a lot of boys and we can name them all after you”.

Hitchcock style mystery finds Audrey Hepburn pursued by several men who want a fortune her late husband had stolen. Beautifully crafted thriller set in Paris, colourful characters (especially Cary Grant who’s on top of his game), and an unforgettable score by Johny Mercer. One can truly say that this is the best Hitchcock movie never to be directed by Hitchcock.

Fun fact: “After finishing this film, Cary Grant was quoted as saying, “All I want for Christmas is to make another movie with Audrey Hepburn”. Sadly, it never happened.”

Rating: 3.5/4
