Regina "Reggie" Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) returns from a holiday to find her Paris apartment stripped bare.

But a fourth charming gentleman (Cary Grant) leaves her wondering who she can trust.

The Lovebirds

The Big Easy

New Orleans police lieutenant Remy McSwain (Dennis Quaid) is investigating a spate of mob murders. DA Anne Osborne (Ellen Barkin) is investigating corruption in the police department.
