(1991), whose story centers around a con man confidence trickster played by Bryan Brown
, had an original working title of "Confidence". Later, an American Hollywood movie, also about a con man confidence trickster, would actually use this title [See: Confidence
(2003)]. During development, pre-production, and then principal photography in 1989, Sweet Talker
(1991) was known as "Confidence" right throughout the production shoot. See more
