Reggie Lambert (Hepburn) returns to Paris from a ski trip to the French Alps to find her house ransacked and her husband dead. His funeral is attended by some curious thugs including James Coburn and George Kennedy, each of whom makes sure that the dead man is indeed dead. Peter (Grant) offers his assistance to Reggie, as does CIA man Bartholomew (Matthau) who informs her that her husband was not the man she thought he was. Hepburn's growing romance with the suave Grant is delightfully handled and the location photography is exquisite. Charade is a truly classic romance.
