After her husband’s murder, a woman is pursued by three cooks who want the money her husband stole from them. She turns to a charming stranger for help but soon discovers he isn’t who he claims to be.

Our take

The best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never made, Stanley Donen’s Charade is a delightful mystery that shines with humor, suspense and style from the last days of Old Hollywood glamour.
