The idea of a then almost sixty year old be romanaced by the much younger and sultry Audrey Hepburn may not be as shocking now as it was when this was released in 1963 but it still comes off as a tad bit creepy. That aside, CHARADE, which most only know in the humorless remake THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLIE, is a fantasticly witty romp sometimes Hitchcock in style, other true Blake Edwards. Easy flick to track down as it is public domain due to a copyright snafu, be sure to look for familiar faces such as George Kennedy, James Coburn and an interesting cameo from Walter Matthau.
