Les plus belles escroqueries du monde (English: The World's Most Beautiful Swindlers) is a 1964 film composed of five segments, each of which was created with a different set of writers, directors, and actors.[3]



Les plus belles escroqueries du monde was released in France in August 1964, in Italy in 1964 and in Japan on October 4, 1964.[1] The film was released in the United States by Ellis Films and Continental Distributing.[1] It was released in the United States on September 12, 1967.[1]

The film was unavailable for many decades, until it was restored and released on home video in France on September 23, 2016[4] and in the US on April 25, 2017.[5] However Roman Polanski's segment of the film, "A River of Diamonds", was removed, at his direct request, and that portion is thus still unavailable.[6]
