Regina Lampert (a stunning Audrey Hepburn) is in the chicest Givemchy has in gorgeous Megève, has decided to divorce her husband, Charles, because of all hissecrets and lies. Before she can, Charles is found dead - pushed off a train. When Regina returns to Paris, she's found her apartment empty, the closets bare, and a French detective,Who tells her Charles supposedly left with $250,000 on his way to South America. A note left for her to come to the US Embassy whew she meets Hamilton Bartholemew (Walter Matthau) tells her Charles stole the money from the government, and they want it back. Soon, 3 men show up, threatening her for the return of 'their' money. Terrified, because Regina knows nothing of any of this, nor where the money is, and very soon, it's made clear to her; give them the money,? Or else. Dashing Peter Joshua (or is it ..?) Is there to help Regina, in director Stanley Donen's windup souflé of a film, hailed as the 'best Hitchcock film he never made'. One part glamour, one part Hepburn, Grant (asks Matthau, Coburn, Kennedy, and many more), whipped stylishly together Regina Lambert (stunning Audrey Hepburn) returns to Paris from a ski holiday to find her husband has been murdered. She is told by CIA agent Hamilton Bartholemew that Charles Lambert was one of 5 men who stole $250,000 in gold from the U.S. government during World War II, and the government wants it back. The money was not found amongst his possessions, and Regina can shed no light on its whereabouts. She's soon visited by Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) whom she had met briefly whilst on holiday. When her husband's former partners (in crime), who were double-crossed by Charles, start terrorising her for the money, Peter offers to help find it. Thus begins an elaborate charade in which nothing - and no one is who or what it seems to be. Director Stanley Donen made one of the best loved films with Charade, and after watching it, you'll agree

The story in this movie deals with the perseverance of Spaniards to take back their country from the French who have conquered Spain under Napoleon as he marched over Europe. A huge cannon, perhaps the largest in the world at that time, is discarded by the army as they retreat from the French invaders. A "ragtag" group of Spanish loyalists find "The Gun" and begin to restore it so they may tow it across Spain to the French stronghold in Avila and use it to open the giant walls for an invasion. Luckily Britain has sent someone to retrieve the cannon for England so they can have it to fight the French also AND to make sure that the French don't get the gun! A shoemaker and his voluptuous girl friend are the leaders of the peasants trying to get the gun to Avila. The Brit can't get help to get the giant gun back to his ship without the peasants and the shoemaker won't help him unless they all go blast Avila open first. The Brit has the knowledge needed to fire the weapon and the shoemaker leads the manpower which can move the huge cannon so a deal is struck to go to Avila and then help will be provided to get the gun to the English ship. The story follows the hardships and struggles of moving such a giant weapon across Spain and how it has to be hidden from the French.

He is often regarded as a genius and considers life is the only real priority. Noah's constant companion is Mr. Shunderson, a quiet, mysterious old man; many believe he is Noah's "bat" or manservant (Finlay Currie). Noah says Mr. Shunderson is his friend. A lovely student nurse, Deborah Higgins,(Jeanne Crain) is ill during one of Noah's university classes; Noah treats her at his private clinic. Deborah is in love with Noah. When they learn that Deborah is pregnant, she tries to commit suicide; she is single and cannot tell her father. Arthur Higgins (Sidney Blackmer) is a dreamer, a man who believes his greatest contribution to life is Deborah. Before Noah realizes it himself, he falls in love with Deborah. So, Noah tells her she is not pregnant; then he marries her. Noah's best friend, Professor Lionel Barker (Walter Slezak) worries about his friend; Noah's success, both financial and professional, makes him the source of envy of many, including the nasty little Professor Rodney Elwell (Hume Cronyn). Noah has the genius to make sick people well and relies equally upon faith and the science of medicine to achieve amazing miracles.

George Randolph Scott (January 23, 1898 – March 2, 1987) was an American film actor whose career spanned from 1928 to 1962. As a leading man for all but the first three years of his cinematic career, Scott appeared in a variety of genres, including social dramas, crime dramas, comedies, musicals (albeit in non-singing and non-dancing roles), adventure tales, war films, and a few horror and fantasy films. However, his most enduring image is that of the tall-in-the-saddle Western hero. Out of his more than 100 film appearances over 60 were in Westerns; thus, "of all the major stars whose name was associated with the Western, Scott most closely identified with it."
