Trivia

The original intention was to have Richard Boone play Marlon Brando's role. However, co-producer Elliott Kastner came back to director/co-writer Hubert Cornfield and told him there was a possibility they could get Marlon Brando for the part. Cornfield jumped at the chance. See more »

Quotes

Chauffeur: [to Leer] I don't want you to hurt the girl; I don't want you to touch her. If I come back and I find out that she's not all right, I'm gonna take that burp gun and I'm gonna jam it up your nose... and I'm gonna pull the trigger 'til it doesn't work any more.

Disturbing tale of Kidnaping
6 November 2001 | by (Daytona Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Night of the Following Day(1969) is the sordid tale of four professional criminals who kidnap an 18 year old rich girl(Pamela Franklin) and hold her for ransom at a beach home off the coast of France.Marlon Brando,(looking fit and sporting a blonde wig), Rita Moreno, Jess Hahn and Richard Boone are the kidnapers. This is not a pleasant movie and the original un-cut version has several unsettling scenes mostly involving the hulking, pyschopathic Boone, complete with full length coat and homburg. Brando is interesting as Bud, showing us at times why he is one of americas greatest actors. Boone is just plain frightening as Leer, a menacing whacko out for the double cross. Dont waste your time looking at any edited versions of this film, they will make no sense at all, but if can find the un-cut version, this movie will make your skin crawl
