Abstract:

Freddy Benson (Martin) is a small-time con man sleazing his way through Europe on whatever handouts he can scam. Lawrence Jamieson (Caine) is an impeccably dressed and high-minded artiste who thinks Freddy's giving him, and all con men, a bad name. At first, Lawrence agrees to help Freddy spruce up his talents, but when it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn't big enough for both of them, they make a winner-take-all wager over the fortune of a naive American soap heiress (Headley): the first one to "clean her out" keeps the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to himself.
