was used

it’s been used way more times 

in charades

  1. I recently watched Charade, which stars Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. Although most of this movie was apparently filmed using the Edison crank camera, you’d never know it. The Technicolor is top notch. When not needed to appear in a scene, I think Walter Matthau, James Coburn, and George Kennedy took their turn at the crank.
