Using a mint stamp by applying an inappropriate postmark, or even simply spoiling the adhesive by attaching it to a piece of paper, can reduce the value considerably, maybe even making the item totally worthless. See more »

Its Rubbish That's The Truth About It
23 December 2005 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

'The Truth About Charlie' Is a wholly unnecessary re-take of the Stanley Donen Classic Charade. Mark Wahlberg,is no Cary Grant. Thandie Newton, looks as if she walked In to the wrong production, Tim Robbins, appears as a US embassy official who phones in his performance. The only interesting thing about this waste of celluloid is the Parisian locations. It's a rather tedious film that goes to show.if it ain't broke don't fix it. I managed to see this flick on its brief run, it vanished in the space of a week, i wonder why. One word of advice rent or buy the superb original Charade Cary Grant Audery Hepburn, Iam sure Cary Grant would turn in his grave! This one should be filed under unnecessary remakes.
