Bedtime Story is considered one of the funniest films of the sixties; the film was recently remade as 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine. The action takes place in a quiet but rich part of Southern France where Lawrence Jameson also known as 'The Prince' (David Niven) has been conning countless women out of their fortunes for years until the arrival of Freddy Benson (Marlon Brando) who has been working 'cheap cons' since he left the army. As Benson and Jameson clash, it is agreed that one of them must leave. to decide who, they arrange a wager to see who can win the next woman they see and extract £25,000 from her the quickest, the race begins as the two con men try everything they know to win the money and to stop one another from succeeding. The results are hilarious in this rare Brando comedy.
