Friday August 5 – Thursday August 11

Featured Film:

Charade at the Seattle Art Museum

SAM’s summer Cary Grant series comes to an end this Thursday night with his 1963 comic thriller Charade, co-starring Audrey Hepburn and directed by Stanley Donen. Riffing on Grant’s persona from his Hitchcock films To Catch a Thief and North By NorthwestCharade is often claimed to be the best non-Hitchcock Hitchcock film ever made. That’s not really accurate, better to say its the best non-musical film Donen ever made. We talked about it way back on Episode Three of The George Sanders Show, along with Jonathan Demme’s maligned but really not that bad 2002 remake The Truth About Charlie.
