The Higher the Stakes, the Higher the Terror! Or so boasts this one’s theatrical marketing tagline…

Marlon Brando (On the Waterfront) and Richard Boone (The War Lord) star in 1969’s The Night of the Following Day, a psychological thriller that examines the darkest impulses of the human psyche.

A gang of four professional criminals brazenly kidnaps a wealthy teenage girl (Pamela Franklin, The Innocents) from an airport in Paris in a meticulous plan to extort money from the girl’s father. Holding her prisoner in an isolated beach house, the gang’s scheme runs perfectly until their personal demons surface and lead to a series of betrayals that culminate in a furious and explosive climax.
