Storyline

Regina is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She meets Cary Grant who changes his name every 15 minutes or so and is interested in her husband's money, which seems to have come from a WWII payroll he stole. His partners in crime are also very interested in where the money is, as he stole it from them as well. Everyone assumes Regina MUST know where the money is. The situation becomes more tense when the searchers begin turning up dead. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

Seven studios rejected the original screenplay. Peter Stone turned it into a novel which was serialized in Redbook, and it was then turned back into a screenplay - which had interest from all 7 studios. See more »

Goofs

Regina, fleeing Canfield, rides the Metro from Saint Jacques (signs prominently seen) to Palais Royal (mentioned several times in dialog). From Saint Jacques one cannot get anywhere near Palais Royal without changing trains at least once; but of course she never does (because Canfield would have another chance to catch her). See more »

a perfect piece of classy and classic entertainment
30 December 1999 | by (adams, oregon) – See all my reviews

I'll be brief. This romantic comedy thriller hybrid is an absolute treat. Starring the classiest of actors in both Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn and directed with continental style and flare by the incomparable Stanley Donen, this film is not to be missed. The photography (especially noticable in the new DVD version), Henry Macini's score, the taught and crisp script, the perfect supporting cast all add up to make a perfect piece of entertainment. I agree with many of the other IMDB writers- it is criminal that this film is not respected more. It is a blueprint of what makes a movie fun. A perfect 10 out of 10.
