Audience Reviews for Charade

James Mason and Pamela Mason (his wife) are directed by Roy Kellino (her ex) in this trio of stories that primarily showcase the liberal, bohemian, artistic sensibilities of all three (as well as just a touch of snotty urbanity). This is a work where the pretence goes something like "if it makes money that's okay, but the primary gist of the thing was the joy of the making it". The Masons also produced and wrote the trilogy AND use their involvement as an introduction to the thing. The Dumas adaptation in the middle is the most fun, but while one appreciates the overall largesse of talent demonstrated, more concise production would've fared better.
