Brando shines in outstanding performance (by angelsunchained)
The Night Before The Following Day is one of Marlon Brando's most over-looked films. Looking as fit and trim as he was in Streetcar Named Desire, Brando gives an emotionally charged performance as Bud Brando's nickname in real life! , the leader of a gang of ruthless kidnappers. Brando's acting is at its best in an amazing scene in which he has an intense conversation with Jess Hahn about his misgivings regarding the success of their kidnapping.The supporting cast is remarkable. Richard Boone as a sadistic murderer, gives his finest career performance. His villain is the most <more>
chilling in movie-screen history. Jess Hahn, as hard-luck Wally, steals the show. He has the look and build of a man who has been dealt the worst of bad luck. Rita Moreno as Wally's drug-addicted sister and Brando's girl-friend, is at her rawest. And a young Pamela Franklin as the kidnap victim shines in a truly abusive role.Raw acting, graphic brutality, realistic action, a surprise ending, and out-standing acting performances makes The Night Before The Following Day a Marlon Brando classic.
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. <more>
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
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 <more>
Innocence spoiled by kidnapping; Terrifying plot (by glennameredith)
This was a real shocker of a movie. I was very young when I first saw it and never had a clue as to the violence and psychological drama that would occur! This is a definite must see movie! Until I read the cast names, I had no idea that Rita Moreno had a part in it. Marlon Brando is a sympathetic character for quite some time. Poor Pamela, the one with no name, makes such a good victim. Unfortunately, the violence really keeps this from children watching; although nowadays, it wouldn't be considered that violent or disturbing by the jaded eyes of our new generation or the generation <more>
before! It would be great to know the background of this movie and the making of it! Pamela Franklin either liked the "victim" roles or they were the ones that were available to her at the time. ANOTHER interesting fact that I and many others would like to know! Who directed her choices? Who was her mentor? Where were her Parents? This is a DVD that I would certainly love to purchase unless it is only on VHS at this time.
Rarely screened Caper film a surprising find (by bob_gilmore1)
Wondering through the list of "free movies" available from my cable provider I stumbled on this rarely screened suspense film from the late 60's about an unstable group of kidnappers whose plot to snatch a rich heiress go completely wrong. The film has a slow, deliberate pace that is evident from the opening credits. It is not surprising that the younger generation brought up on MTV and comic book action sequels and prequels would be so bored by a film that takes it's time in unspooling its simple plot. The picture was made in a different era when directors could actually <more>
present a vision and let the audience decide if they liked it; not a focus group or committee of studio executives. American films reached a certain creative peak in the late 60's and early 70's before the blockbuster knocked everything else off the playing film. This is a serious movie for people that are looking a little deeper than the surface for enrichment. This is a movie that causes you to FEEL something. You may feel bored, hypnotized or energized but you won't walk away feeling nothing.The performances are all strong, especially Brando as a "chauffer" that leads the gang. While the heavy Richard Boone may explain to the kidnap victim that "we are all professional criminals" they certainly don't act like it. Their desperation is evident as the plot unravels.The ending is much discussed on this very site, for instance but it is quite satisfying along the lines of Fritz Lang's "The Woman In The Window" but it is not an obvious copy as it took me several hours to come up with the comparison.
seedy underworld gang kidnaps British heiress (by RanchoTuVu)
A young British heiress Patricia Franklin is kidnapped at an airport in Paris in this rather tough existentialist crime drama featuring Marlon Brando as the nominal leader of the gang of morally flexible criminals that include his drug addicted girlfriend played by Rita Moreno, her pickpocket brother Jess Hahn and Richard Boone at his most menacing as a pimp named Leer. They hold her in an isolated house on a desolate looking beach but discover a French police officer who likes to fish coincidentally happens to live nearby. The entire affair is heavy going with a group who thinks they can <more>
pull off this caper and avoid the underlying violence. Interesting tension develops between bad Boone and not-so-bad Brando, with Jess Hahn sort of stealing the show as a kind of non- violent pickpocket desperate just to get the money. In addition it's a pretty far way from where Rita Moreno was in West Side Story.
