The Night of the Following Day

Movie Summary

Director:
Hubert Cornfield
Released:
1968
Rating:
R

Four criminals - Bud (Marlon Brando), his girl Vi (Rita Moreno), her brother Wally (Jess Hahn) and a hired hand, a stranger to the others called Leer (Richard Boone) - kidnap an heiress (Pamela Franklin) upon her return to Paris and bring her to an isolated beach house on the French coast. Tensions quickly arise between the kidnappers, chiefly because Leer is clearly a loose cannon who can't be trusted and may turn nasty - very nasty indeed - at any moment. The ransom demand is made, and the girl's father agrees to pay up. But on the night of the following day, everything goes wrong, horribly wrong.

      • Leer: [to the girl]: Thank you, my dear, for a charming interlude.

      • Bud: [to Leer]: I'm going to say this rather quickly. I don't want you to hurt the girl. I don't want you to touch her. If you do, I'll take that burp gun from you and stick it up your nose, and then I'll pull the trigger till it doesn't work any more.

      • Bud: [to Leer]: Listen to me, man - if you want to try something freaky, you don't do it with her.

      • Leer: [to the kidnapped girl]: If something bad were to happen to you, something a lot worse would happen to us.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Some measure of Marlon Brando's control over this film can be gauged by the fact that his character is named "Bud" (his real-life nickname) and that his best friend (played by Jess Hahn) is called "Wally" - a brief hommage to Brando's real-life best friend, the comedian and actor Wally Cox. Hubert Cornfield's original version of the script gave no names to any of the characters and he was most annoyed by Brando's insistence on this point, which Universal Studios supported.
