A young American in Paris (Audrey Hepburn) flees a trio of crooks who are trying to recover the fortune her late husband stole from them. The only person she can trust is a suave stranger (Cary Grant). A deliciously dark comedic thriller, Stanley Donen's "Charade" dazzles with style and macabre wit to spare. Criterion is proud to present this '60s suspense classic in a gorgeous widescreen transfer.

I'm having a nervous breakdown

This classic thriller from Universal is in the public domain, which explains the various releases by different companies. This re-release by The Criterion Collection is the one fans of the film must own, featuring restored image and sound (the transfer is anamorphic, the transfer for Criterion's first release was non-anamorphic). There are not a huge collection of extras here compared with some Criterion releases but what is included is quality. The extras are the theatrical trailer, biographies for director Stanley Donen and screenwriter Peter Stone, and best of all, an audio commentary with Donen and Stone. Another notable thing about the disc is that while the sleeve claims it is R1, it is actually R0, meaning that you do not need a multiregion machine to play it.
