CHARADE is a tongue-in-cheek thriller set in Paris with Audrey Hepburn as a recent widow being pursued by villainous thugs for a cache of stolen money involving her murdered husband. Grant plays an American stranger allegedly “helping” Hepburn. Stylishly directed by Stanley Donen ('Singin’ in the Rain,' 'Two for the Road') and written by Peter Stone ('1776,' 'The Taking of Pelham One Two Three') and Marc Behm, the film is a cross between screwball black comedy and Hitchcockian suspense. Bosley Crowther of the New York Times called it “a fast-moving urbane entertainment,” with Variety citing Grant as the “suave master of romantic banter.” Grant and Hepburn make for a delightful team, and a terrific supporting cast features turns by three future Oscar winners, all in the supporting actor category: Walter Matthau, James Coburn and George Kennedy. The Oscar-nominated music (Best Song) is by Henry Mancini. The film was a smash hit in 1963, and kept Grant in the top ten box office stars poll that year.
