Bedtime Story is a 1964 comedy film made by Pennebaker Productions, The Lankershim Company and Universal Pictures. It was directed by Ralph Levy and produced by Stanley Shapiro with Robert Arthur as executive producer from a screenplay by Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning. The music score was by Hans J. Salter and the cinematography by Clifford Stine.
The film stars Marlon Brando, David Niven and Shirley Jones.
Marlon Brando and David Niven portray two charming scoundrels who prey on wealthy single women in this lighthearted romantic comedy set on the French Riviera.
While masquerading as a deposed Middle European prince, Niven's plans to oust his competitor backfire when the brash Brando portrays Niven's dim-witted brother. Brando's zany antics prevent several women from tying the knot with Niven.
When Shirley Jones appears as an American soap queen, both men compete for her affections, agreeing that loser leaves town, until they discover her true financial situation.
Filmed on location at Cannes, the comedy was written and produced by Stanley Shapiro (who received an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the 1959 romantic comedy film Pillow Talk), and was the basis for the 1988 comedy film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
