It's a guessing game of mirth and mystery!
Romance and suspense in Paris, as a woman is pursued by several men who want a fortune her murdered husband had stolen. Who can she trust?

This movie is sometimes referred to as "Hitchcock Lite," a distinction that I think is complete bullshit. That is really unfair and dismissive to a movie that I think can stand up with the best of Hitchcock's work and even higher in some cases. The only reason some look at it as sub-Hitchcock is because it's funnier than any Hitchcock and that unbelievably makes people think less of it. This movie is for real hilarious. But the mystery and the suspense and the action is top notch. No, not "but." And. AND the mystery and the suspense and the action is top notch in addition to the laughs. Plus just LOOK at this cast. It is STACKED! The first 5 on that list down there are FAVES of mine. And Audrey Hepburn has never been more charming and cute and funny. This is my favorite film of hers and close to my favorite Cary Grant.
