In what's been called 'the best Alfred Hitchcock filn which he didn't direct', a man's thrown of a train, and when the police Trek his wife, it turns out she knew nothing about him - not even his real name. After her are 4 men, who insist she's in possession of a huge amount of money, which they belle to be theirs. If she doesn't give it to them, she'll be killed.Written by

When I first saw "Charade", I was convinced for the longest time this was a Hitchcock movie. Small wonder; Hitchcock all but set the standard for quality mystery films. Still, I give director Donen my sincerest apologies. Anyway, where did this film go?? Its tasteful humor, colorful characters and intelligent plot make "Charade" one of the best mystery movies ever made, but it's not well known even among classic films.
"Look for it. Look as hard and as fast as you can." This film ranks with "Clue", "The Name of the Rose" and "The 39 Steps" as one of the most enjoyable mysteries of all time. Makes a great dating/party movie.
