Screen greats Marlon Brando (The Night of the Following Day), David Niven (Separate Tables) and Shirley Jones (Elmer Gantry) star in Bedtime Story, the classic comedy caper about two cunning conmen on the French Riviera. The caddish Freddy Benson (Brando) enjoys setting up elaborate ruses to seduce women. The suave Lawrence Jameson (Niven) likes to pose as a prince to swindle the wealthy. When the two men meet, each perceives the other as an interloper and a threat. Upon the arrival of vacationing soap heiress Janet Walker (Jones), the two sweet-talking scoundrels compete to trick her out of both her clothes and her fortune. Written by Stanley Shapiro (Pillow Talk) and Paul Henning (Lover Come Back), directed by Ralph Levy (Do Not Disturb), and later remade as 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Bedtime Story is the funniest story ever put between covers!
