Friday Night at the Drive-In: Charade

 

charade1

This is one of those movies I’ve seen over and over again.  Why?

 

First of all, it’s a comedy-mystery-romance-thriller. A little something for everyone.  Second, the characters are complex. The damsel in distress is smart and resourceful. The good guys may be bad guys. The bad guys have redeeming qualities. Third, its stars, Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant, are truly movie stars. Fourth, it has a great Henry Mancini soundtrack.  Highly recommended!
