Charade (1963)

Charade is a 1963 film directed by Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain) and stars Audrey Hepburn as Regina Lambert, a woman living in France who finds out that her husband has been killed. She becomes relentlessly pursued by criminals (portrayed by James Coburn and George Kennedy) who are trying to get the secret fortune that they think that her husband left her. Her only hope is an American agent (Walter Matthau) until she meets Peter Joshua (Cary Grant). But Peter may not be who he says... The film subsequently was loosely remade several times, including as 1978's Someone Killed Her Husband and 2002's The Truth About Charlie.
