Charade

My dears, have you ever seen the movie Charade? It's one of my absolute favorites. It's stylish, funny, and set (and actually filmed!) in Paris- crucial bits to any movie I'll watch over and over again. Plus the chemistry between Hepburn and Grant makes the two seem almost giddy to be in one another's company.
If you haven't seen it, well, what are you waiting for? Get on that! The Givenchy outfits (and hats!) alone make it a worthy watch.

Of course, if you were planning on seeing it, well, what better day than today- it's Audrey Hepburn's 82 birthday!
Happy viewing, Dear Readers!

Thank you SO much for the reminder! I love Audrey movies so much. My current favorite is Funny Face, but I have been dyyying to watch Charade. I read it's Hitchcock-esque, and I've heard all about the Givenchy. Oh man, I might just watch it tonight. So glad I stopped by! :)

Hilary- I'm glad you stopped by, too:) Definitely a nod to Hitchcock- you'll love this, I promise! Funny Face is a good one, too!

Sophie- Watch it! Get on that! :)

Jess- TCM, right? I fell asleep around the time they got off the train. You can never go wrong when Cary Grant's in something!

BEST movie EVER! I own it and I never get tired of watching it. The chemistry between Cary Grant and AH is so strong, the clothes are fierce...I could go and on. I also own the remake with Mark Wahlberg "The Truth about Charlie" and it's actually pretty good. I watch that one often too, but the fashion isn't as delicious!

I'm a huge fan of Hepburn and Grant, so I'm completely shocking myself (and probably you!) that I've enever seen Charade. Must add to Netflix list!

I ADORE this movie. My brother and I discovered it when I was a freshman in high school, and I think we watched it weekly for a month. Maybe more. We thought it was the coolest thriller ever. I just think you can't go wrong with both Cary Grant AND Audrey Hepburn. Just the casting tells you it's a winner.
