The final shot, with Marlon Brando smiling in a close-up, was particularly difficult to film for director Hubert Cornfield. Brando kept on making silly faces and refused to smile because he was upset that the ending he preferred was not filmed. In the editing room, Cornfield picked out one frame in which Brando smiled before making another face. See more »

I just saw this DVD for the first time. I couldn't believe that in 1968 at age 44 that Marlon Brando was in such outstanding shape. He was fit and trim and blonde. His acting was unbelievable. In one particular scene with Jess Hahn, Brando is at his best.
This "kidnap" film has a strong supporting cast which gives equally impressive performances. Richard Boone gives a very creepy performance as a sadistic psycho. He reminds me a lot of Alan Arkin's role in Wait Until Dark. Jess Hahn is great as the pot-bellied brother of Rita Moreno.
The Night Before The Following Day is one of Marlon Brando's top 10 acting roles.
