His favorite one is going through Germany posing as an American GI of Teutonic extraction. Whenever he spots a girl he likes, he takes a Polarod picture of her house, knocks on the door waving the photo and pretending to be on a pilgrimage to this very cottage his grandmother so vividly described. It is an infallible system for a hit-and-run seduction. Benson seems content with his game until he meets Jameson, a real operator who has learned to combine sex with money. Jameson poses as an exiled prince and not only gets women to share his bed but also to bestow their jewels on him for the sake of the counterrevolution. Benson decides to corner Jameson’s market on sex plus finance. A contest develops, and whoever wins will dominate a small Riviera resort as “King of the Mountain,” the film’s original title. Remade in 1988 as “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.”

He is content with his game until he meets Jamison, a real operator who poses as an exiled prince and not only gets women to share his bed but also to give him money to help him fund his supposed counter-revolution.

Similar enough to keep me entertained, different enough to keep me interested
I think the reason I found Bedtime Story so entertaining was because it was surreal to hear the lines from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels delivered by different people in a different movie. I never would have imagined Marlon Brando as Ruprecht and David Niven fits the role of Lawrence Jameson perfectly. This movie features enough similarities to keep me entertained, and enough differences to keep me interested.
The original ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’!
I didn’t figure it out until a third of the way through this movie, but Bedtime Story is the original version of the beloved comedy and subsequent Broadway musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels! The two movies are so incredibly similar, from the writing to the acting, that no matter which one you watch first, you’ll be in for a hilarious evening. There’s really only one little difference, and while I prefer the way the original was written, the remake is still very cute.
David Niven, as studly as ever, is a conman who preys on rich American women. He pretends to be a royal prince desperately in need of money to free his enslaved people, and after a seduction, the women gladly surrender their jewelry and checkbooks. Marlon Brando, not particularly studly, also cons women in giving him money-for his nonexistent sick grandmother who needs an operation. The characters are introduced separately to the audience, and each set of scenes is totally hilarious. When they finally reunite on the screen, there’s a side-splittingly funny battle of the wits as they try to top each other in the con game.
I could tell you more of the plot, but there’s really no need. The first fifteen minutes is funny enough on its own to make you want to watch the entire rest of the movie. Stanley Shapiro’s-the Oscar-winning writer of Pillow Talk-and Paul Henning’s script is quick, witty, clever, and charming. I highly recommend watching Bedtime Story, or Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, whenever you need a good laugh. You’ll be laughing for days.
