There’s such a joy when two major stars team up for a movie and look excited to push each other in their roles. Such is what makes Dirty Rotten Scoundrels enduring as a comedy as Steve Martin (The Spanish Prisoner) and Michael Caine (Get Carter) unite in Europe. Their characters compete to be the best con man, but ultimately it’s two actors competing to make director Frank Oz (Sesame Street) to give them the cut. Caine gets to slick things up with his English attitude while Martin pulls out any stop to win the bet. Now you can take in the scam with Blu-ray release for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: Collector’s Edition. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory that includes the bonus features:

In the south of France, two rival con men — suave and sophisticated Lawrence (two-time Oscar®-winner Michael Caine, The Cider House Rules) and third-rate American hustler Freddy (Steve Martin, The Jerk) — make a wager. The first one to extract $50,000 from the next woman they meet wins … and the other leaves town. The bet is on, the stakes are high and the blows are low in this hysterically funny, ruthlessly witty, dirty, rotten comedy!
