While the title may sound like a modern movie, the premise echoes classic 19th century American literature. Trading Places is a modern version of Mark Twain’s 1881 novel, The Prince and the Pauper, which features two boys from different backgrounds switching places. While Trading Places removed the physical resemblance aspect, it retained the core idea and social commentary. This book has a very different approach to the idea, but the social commentary is reminiscent of the original book.

Eddie Murphy

In Eddie Murphy and Trading Places, two characters, a down-and-out hustler Billy Ray Valentine and a successful upper-crust executive, are thrown together. Mortimer (Don Ameche) and Randolph Duke (Ralph Bellamy), both successful brokers, try to frame Winthorpe for a crime he did not commit while installing street-smart Valentine in Louis Winthorpe’s position. As the two men fall in love, they uncover the scheme.

In the early 1980s, Harris came across two wealthy brothers who were embroiled in a long-running rivalry. Together with writing partner Weingrod, he developed the story into a script. The film was originally intended to star Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, but Landis cast Murphy, Aykroyd, and Curtis as the main characters, despite the initial disapproval of Paramount Pictures. Filming took place in New York City and Philadelphia between December 1982 and March 1983.

Dan Aykroyd

In the thriller Dan Aykroyd trades places with Robert Duvall, the role of an upper-class executive is played by Dan Aykroyd. The movie also stars Don Ameche as a slick broker, while Ralph Bellamy plays the cocky street-smart Valentine. The two men, who are all too happy to work for the Dukes, conspire to frame Louis Winthorpe for a crime he did not commit and put the street-savvy Valentine in his position. But the two men’s paths cross, and the plot twists are almost as witty as the movie’s dialogue.

When the film was released in 1983, Aykroyd was still a young man. He was only 29 years old when he played Louis Winthorpe, a white commodity broker in Philadelphia. But his success was not confined to the movie industry. He has acted in over 100 movies, with 85 films released since 1983. Trading Places has a score of 7.1 on The Movie Database.

Jamie Lee Curtis

When it comes to the ’80s, few Hollywood icons have as much charisma as Jamie Lee Curtis. She was born to legendary parents Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Besides being a beloved movie star, she is also an illustrator of many illustrated children’s books. Her first published book, “Mrs. Curtis and Her Friends,” was published in 1993. During her early years, she made several minor television appearances, including a role as Laurie Strode in the hit series “Halloween.”

This comedy starred two great actors in contrasting roles. Jamie Lee Curtis starred as the sexy businesswoman Ophelia, and Michael Murphy played the sexy businessman Valentine. The sexy couple’s rivalry began when Winthorpe’s evil millionaire bosses fired him and replaced him with a street hustler Valentine. The two men eventually reunite and win a revenge battle against their evil millionaires.

Denholm Elliott

In addition to his role as “Cooper”, Elliott gained recognition as an actor with over 125 film and television credits. His film credits include roles such as abortionist in Alfie (1966), Marcus Brody in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Coleman in Trading Places (1983), and Mr. Emerson in A Room with a View (1985). Elliott gained critical acclaim for his work later in his life and received three BAFTA Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in the 1980s.
