Charade

Universal City: Universal Studios, 1963. Vintage studio still photograph of director Stanley Donen talking with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn while filming on location for the 1963 film. Printed mimeo snipe affixed to the verso.

The greatest box office success of Donen's career, owing to an excellent screenplay and what Donen's biographer Stephen M. Silverman refers to as the film's three stars: "Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, and Paris." Influenced by Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest," but simultaneously lighter and more complex, with an even more entertaining tailspin of deception than its predecessor.

Set and shot on location in Paris.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.

Criterion Collection 57. Penzler 101.
