We use the guillotine in this country [France]. I have always imagined that the blade, coming down, causes no more than a slight tickling sensation on the back of the neck. It is only a guess, of course… I hope none of you ever finds out for certain. ~ Police Inspector Edouard Grandpierre in Charade (1963)
Inspector Grandpierre (played by Jacques Marin) said that line to Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) and Regina Lampert (Audrey Hepburn), while investigating the murder of the mysterious Charles Lampert in Stanley Donen’s Charade.
