The jaunty image, made public five days before Christmas, was arresting: two young friends, dressed in dinner jackets, full of confident swagger.

Jay Rutland, standing on the right, captioned it: ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ — in reference to the 1988 Michael Caine comedy film of that name, about two conmen who compete to swindle an American heiress out of $50,000.
