The Spanish Prisoner

The Spanish Prisoner is a 1997 American suspense film, written and directed by David Mamet and starring Campbell Scott, Steve Martin, Rebecca Pidgeon, Ben Gazzara, Felicity Huffman and Ricky Jay. The film tells the story of an elaborate confidence game; the Spanish Prisoner scam is mentioned, though the actual plot has little if any resemblance to it. In 1999 the film was nominated by the Mystery Writers of America for the Edgar Award for Best Motion Picture Screenplay but lost out to Steven Soderbergh's Out of Sight. ... more on Wikipedia
