ClueBased on the popular board game. This is a comedy murder mystery movie. Which person at the dinner party did the murder?

A slightly weird comedy, part slapstick, part farce, part mystery.

Not in the style that children would enjoy, but an entertaining movie for adults. Watch for the three alternative endings that make it a bit different.

CharadeThe wife of a murdered man is pursued by a group of men who want the fortune her husband stole.

This is a clever mixture of thrills, suspense, and humour. Lots of plot twists make it a great ride. Yes it is suspenseful, but it ‘s not the kind of movie to give nightmares.

So well made you’d think it was by Hitchcock.

Year: 1963
