A Clip From Charade

Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn in a scene from Charade.

The 1963 movie is notable for ….. the repartee between Grant and Hepburn, for having been filmed on location in Paris, for Henry Mancini’s score and theme song,…. Charade has been referred to as “the best Hitchcock movie that Hitchcock never made.” Hepburn went on to win the BAFTA Best Actress Award. Wiki


When we played our charade

We were like children posing
Playing at games, acting out names
Guessing the parts we played

Oh what a hit we made
We came on next to closing
Best on the bill, lovers until
Love left the masquerade

Fate seemed to pull the strings
I turned and you were gone
While from the darkened wings
The music box played on

Sad little serenade
Song of my heart’s composing
I hear it still, I always will
Best on the bill
