A woman, about to divorce her husband, finds that he has been murdered after converting all of their fortune into cash. Numerous people are searching for the money, which he apparently stole, and everyone assumes she must know where the money is hidden.
A trio of crooks relentlessly pursue a young American through Paris to recover the fortune her dead husband stole from them. The only person she can trust is a suave, mysterious stranger. A deliciously dark comedic thriller, Stanley Donen's Charade dazzles with style and macabre wit to spare.
