Charade is a 1963 American romantic comedy mystery film directed by Stanley Donen, written by Peter Stone and Marc Behm, and starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. It spans three genres: suspense thriller, romance and comedy.
The film has a sparkling screenplay, especially the repartee between Grant and Hepburn. It was filmed on location in Paris.
Cary Grant, who turned 59 during filming, was sensitive about the 25-year age difference between Audrey Hepburn (33 at the time of filming) and himself, and was uncomfortable with their romantic interplay. To satisfy his concerns, the filmmakers agreed to add dialogue that has Grant's character comment on his age, and Regina — Hepburn's character — is portrayed as the pursuer.
While on a skiing holiday in the French Alps, expatriate American simultaneous interpreter Regina "Reggie" Lampert (by Audrey Hepburn) meets a charming American stranger, Peter Joshua, and after she returns to Paris, she is met with an empty home, the news of her husband's death, the appearances of several strange man, including Peter Joshua.
In the film, Audrey Hepburn as Reggie Lampert's costumes are designed by Audrey Hepburn's friend, French couturier Hubert de Givenchy.
The outfits are designed with such sensitivity to both Audrey Hepburn herself as well as her character, they could all well be part of Audrey's own wardrobe off screen.
