Larry Karaszewski on

All Through the Night

Released 1942
Distributor Warner Bros.

Released soon after Pearl Harbor, audiences in 1941 didn’t find this Runyonesque comic melodrama in which familiar Warner gangsters unite to fight Nazis all that funny. But years of tv exposure has built up the following it deserves. It’s no To Be Or Not To Be, but Vincent Sherman’s second time directing Bogart (and a terrific cast) is fast, funny and patriotic in the best sense.
