Charade (1963)

Director: Stanley Dolan
Actors: Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, George Kennedy, Walter Mathau, James Coburn, Ned Glass
Runtime: 113 min.

American Regina Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) meets the charming Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) during a ski trip to the French Alps. Upon returning home to Paris, she plans to ask her husband Charles for a divorce, but discovers that he's been murdered.

Trivia: Audrey Hepburn was 32 years old and Cary Grant 59 when the film was made, so Grant requested that the script be changed to show her pursuing him. Audrey Hepburn won the BAFTA award for best actress for her role in the film. Grant and Hepburn both received Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture Actor in a Musical/Comedy. The musical score by Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini was nominated for an Academy Award. The ski resort scenes at the beginning of the movie were filmed in Megève, France.
