In keeping with our FREE Classic Movie Night tradition, we will be screening an Audrey Hepburn film. This time it's the 1963 classic comedy, mystery, romance, "Charade," starring Hepburn and Cary Grant and directed by Stanley Donen. And it's just in time for Valentine's Day.
After Regina Lampert (Hepburn) falls for the dashing Peter Joshua (Grant) while on a skiing holiday in the French Alps, she discovers upon her return to Paris that her husband has been murdered. Soon, she and Peter are giving chase to three of her late husband's World War II cronies, Tex (James Coburn), Scobie (George Kennedy) and Gideon (Ned Glass), who are after $250,000 the quartet stole while behind enemy lines. But why does Peter keep changing his name?
"Charade" received one Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, "Charade" by Henry Mancini and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. "Charade" earned both Hepburn and Grant Golden Globe nominations in 1964. Stop in for a great glass of wine before the movie at Cine Cuvée, located adjacent to the Orinda Theatre.
