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>

I'd have spent a lot of time on Broadway too
9 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Beal had an interesting career on stage and screen. He did many Broadway shows, and it's no wonder if this kind of thing he was being given. This particular film, "One Thrilling Night," is from Monogram, one of the poverty row studios.

It concerns honeymooners who will only have one night together before the husband, Horace (Beal) leaves for the service. Unfortunately the newlyweds check into the wrong room. There's a dead guy under the bed and intruders, Frankie (Tom Neal) and friends are in and out looking for money hidden by the dead man.

Wanda McKay is the hapless bride and she's quite pretty. According to the men reviewing this, she more than made up for any story problems. The acting is fine, the print was bad, and to me, the movie looked cheap. I'm sure it was. While I found the premise funny, I didn't think it was that well executed. Beal actually started out as a young leading man I believe at MGM and then leading man and finally to character parts. I met him once at a function honoring someone - it was so long ago I can't remember who was being honored. A nice man, active in the business until a few years before his death.
