My two favorite movies from Hepburn. The wit, style, Mancini score, and opening credits of Charade defeat the menace, terror, and suspense of Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark contains what is possibly Hepburn's best performance.

Cary Grant. Case closed.

I love both of these two, but Charade is the clear winner here. I'm probably the only person on this site that has Charade in his top ten.

Love Hepburn films seen nearly all, and both of these are fabulous! but the combination of her and Cary Grant plus a very humorous Mystery film in Charade takes this one!

Right now, I have Charade at #7 on my Audrey Hepburn chart and Wait Until Dark at #8. Those could flip-flop easily depending on my mood. Right now, I slightly favor the suspense of Dark over the fun of Charade.
