Larry Cohen on

Charade

Released 1963
Distributor Universal

Cary, Audrey, a clever Peter Stone script, sparkling direction by Stanley Donen on fabulous Paris locations, a memorable Mancini score and a breakout supporting cast–what more do you want? Often called the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made. Remade to no particular effect as The Truth About Charlie in 2002.
