    Terror on a Train, a.k.a. Time Bomb with Glenn Ford from '53.
    A mediocre drama about a terrorist who plants a bomb on a train full of sea mines. Glenn Ford is brought in to locate and defuse the bomb before it destroys a town. Apparenly in wartime England there were no local sappers to do the job.. Ford was his usual cool/wooden self, the supporting English casting was good.
    We never found out the who exactly planted the bomb or why. The trite ending with Ford walking off with his wife is glaringly undermined by the fact that these two couldn't stand each other and his wife leaves him at the beginning of the film for fun and frolicking in France! The bomb scare prevented her from catching a train or cab to the nearest airport.

    THAT is an excellent movie. I was really disappointed with the remake... and renaming of the remake made no sense...

    I think it was The Truth About Charlie with Mark Wahlberg and Thandie Newton:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0270707/

    I didn't bother watching this as the original is perfect and how can you improve on that?

    I just noticed that Thandie Newton's character is called Regina Lambert when Audrey's character was called Regina Lampert but this is always spelled incorrectly on DVD boxes of Charade for some reason.....

    Mark Wahlberg is certainly NOT Cary Grant! Sounds like a desperate idea. It's one of my favourite CG films after North By North West and To Catch a Thief

    Yeah, there were other inconsistencies as well, such as The Truth About Charlie was done as a weird, neo-noir style drama and the original was more of a dramatic-comedy. It was also missing all of the chemistry that Grant and Hepburn had in Charade.
