Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Dr. Emil Schaffhausen ( Whip) Scene
Clip Description
Freddy (Steve Martin) poses as a crippled soldier who needs to borrow $50,000 for treatment by a celebrated Liechtenstein psychiatrist, Dr. Emile Shauffhausen. When Lawrence (Michael Caine) discovers this scheme he pretends to be Dr. Shauffhausen, insisting Freddy's condition is one he can cure.
Movie Description
Lawrence and Freddie are con-men; big-time and small time respectively. They unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this town (on the French Mediterranean coast) aint big enough for the two of them. They agree to a "loser leaves" bet. The bet brings out the best/worse in the two.
