Bud (Marlon Brando) and Leer (Richard Boone) grab the gorgeous girl (Pamela Franklin) at the airport in Paris. The limousine is driven down a deserted country road where the airplane's stewardess Vi (Rita Moreno) is in on the plan and helps the criminals switch cars. The quartet heads to a remote beach house where the girl's father is contacted with instructions for the payoff. When the girl tries to escape, Bud helps her from being roughed up by Leer, which makes the heroine junkie Vi jealous. Vi's brother Wally (Jess Hahn) goes with to the saloon where the drop-off is scheduled, but Wally is wounded in a gun battle with the bartender. He escapes and gives the money to Leer, who is finished having his sadistic carnal way with the kidnap victim. Bud once again tries to help the girl, and Leer tries to shoot everyone who stands in his way. The feature ends with a hard-to-fathom surprise in this violent story of murder, greed and love of money. Dan Pavlides, RoviRead Less

This obscure 1968 Marlon Brando movie is about a kidnap-for-random scheme that goes awry. Rita Moreno plays Brando's girlfriend, Jess Hahn is her gentle but criminal brother, and Richard Boone is the evil fourth wheel. Brando and Moreno pose as limo driver and flight attendant respectively to pull off the abduction, then whisk the little rich French girl off to a house by the ocean, from where they contact her dad to demand the ransom. Alas, the daring scheme cannot survivie the conflicts and pathologies of its unscrupulous partners-in-crime, and only one of the villainous foursome survives the violent ending. Although he's a hardened criminal and a bit of a brute toward Moreno, Brando has a soft spot for the victim, whom he tries to protect from Boone, who has a soft spot for no one. "Night..." is a great movie for Brando fans and thrillers, and 60s "Palatine" fans might enjoy seeing Boone again.
