We Just Watched a Movie – Charade

Play Download media

Rumors of our podfade have been greatly exaggerated!  Apologies for the long delay.  Between business trips, Gen Con prep, Gen Con itself, post-Gen Con malaise, the site being down, Jonathan’s anniversary, etc., it’s been a rough couple of months.  But we’re back!

Charade this week.  Olympia next week.  As always, follow along on Nathaniel’s.

Charade – December 5, 1963

Director: Stanley Donen
Producer: Stanley Donen
Writers: Peter Stone
Actors: Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Walter Matthau, James Coburn
Studio: Stanley Donen Productions
Distributor: Universal Pictures

The course of the conversation:

Is 1960’s sexism more tolerable than modern sexism?

Jonathan hates Scott Pilgrim.

As with most things, the more training you have, the more obvious certain things are.

Audrey Hepburn proves herself to be funny, convincing, and all-around great.

Carey Grant is much more hit or miss.

Is this an honest representation of 1963 perceptions, or just 1963 media?

Jonathan and Michael do eventually get down from the ivory tower.

Walter Matthau is, as always, incredible.

The funeral scene is awesome.

Michael compares Charade to Bud Light and McDonalds.

Jonathan feels Charade could have been truly glorious, but falls just shy.

Nathaniel compares Charade to candy bars.
