| Stories in a trunk
If you're wondering the Cary Grant/Audrey Hepburn film Charade is not a remake of this. This Charade is a collection of three short stories where would be film producer James Mason and his Pamela Mason discuss some film projects and they are short stories she's written and filed away in a trunk. Some of them should have stayed there.

The Masons play the leads in all three stories. Of the three the best was the second where Mason who is a crack duelist is goaded into a duel by Scott Forbes over Pamela Mason. Only Forbes has a diabolical scheme in mind since as the challenged party Forbes gets to choose, time, place, and method.

The other two are of lesser quality, but they do show that James Mason was an actor of great versatility. Like I didn't already know that, still this is within a less than 90 minute time frame.

Mason didn't think much of it according to the Citadel Film Series book on his career. But I rather liked the second story and he underrated himself here.
