"...an absolute delight in which Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn schottische about with evident glee."
|With Audrey Hepburn.|
Charade - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):
"Not since John Huston's Beat the Devil has there been such a gay romp as Charade. Huston himself recently tried something similar in The List of Adrian Messenger, but the comedy thriller is a chancy little form, and he could not duplicate that first brilliant success. More credit, then, to producer-director Stanley Donen who has brought to the screen an absolute delight in which Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn schottische about with evident glee.
It is characteristic of the generally civilized and witty fun of the entire film, and somehow entirely appropriate that Miss Hepburn should suddenly look into a can of Calox toothpowder and ask Grant if he can tell heroin by its taste. He tastes and says: "Heroin! Peppermint-flavored heroin!" Charade merits not merely audiences, but addicts.
