Storyline

Horace Jackson (John Beal) and his bride, Millie ('Wanda McKay' qv)),check into a New York City hotel room for their one-night honeymoon before he reports for induction into the arm the next day. But intruders, led by gangster Frankie Saxton (Tom Neal) and his henchmen constantly invade their privacy searching for the hidden loot stashed by fellow mobster Joe Richmond (Lynton Brent). It does not help that Horace keeps placing the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the inside of the room door. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A film where everyone is incredibly stupid...everyone.
23 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"One Thrilling Night" is a likable film that is anything but a good picture! Yes, it's cheap, the characters are all total morons and the plot dopey...yet it's will oddly enjoyable.

The film begins when Horace (John Beal) and Millie (Wanda McKay*) arriving in the big city for their honeymoon. Soon, they find someone in their bed and he appears dead. When they call for the house detective, however, the guy disappears! In fact throughout the film, the body of this gangster appears and disappears. And a group of incredibly stupid crooks think Horace is the man they knocked out. The cops get involved...and they are stupid as well. Well, now that I think about it, EVERYONE is incredibly dumb in this film and the filmmakers really overdo this. Yet, oddly, despite the dopiness of everyone and the situation, the film is strangely enjoyable in a brain-dead sort of way. A silly time-passer.

*FYI--While McKay never went on to become a top actress, she did become Mrs. Hoagy Carmichael and remained married to him many years until his death.
