City of Love

Our book is set in mid 1950's Paris so I decided to pick some movies that were set in Paris around that time.

The first one I picked was "Charade" starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. It is an Alfred Hitchcock movie so I couldn't resist.


Regina is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She meets Cary Grant who changes his name every 15 minutes or so and is interested in her husband's money, which seems to have come from a WWII payroll he stole. His partners in crime are also very interested in where the money is, as he stole it from them as well. Everyone assumes Regina MUST know where the money is. The situation becomes more tense when the searchers begin turning up dead.

Love this movie! But of course I love all things Audrey Hepburn-Cary Grant-Alfred Hitchcock:)

I am still reading "Nine Coaches" and I am liking it. I am about half way through. I'll rate it when I am done. I love all those movies that you suggest viewing so I guess I will have to rent them this month and watch them again. I have yet to watch "Midnight in Paris" though. Is it out at redbox yet? Grandma J would get a chuckle out of Cafe Melba! I would always ask her for homemade hot chocolate at night and she would allow me to watch my choice of TV program when I stayed overnight at her place. I miss her. Love Penny
