Goofs

After Blackie, (dressed as a messenger), delivers the "Blue Star of the Nile" diamond to Inspector Farraday, he tells him where the bad guys are holding "The Runt" hostage. Before leaving, Farraday uses the telephone to call for backup, but the phone is upside down. He's speaking into the earpiece and the telephone cord is coming out of the part that he has to his ear.

Another breezy Blackie
27 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"One Mysterious Night" is a Boston Blackie film starring Chester Morris and made in 1944. In this one, Inspector Farraday accuses Blackie of stealing a valuable diamond, in the hopes of bringing him to the police station so he can get his help in recovering it. It works, and Blackie and the Runt (George E. Stone) are put on the case. Meanwhile, Blackie is dogged by a good-looking reporter (Janis Carter) who sees through a couple of his disguises.

What makes this series is the good fun provided by Chester Morris as Blackie. It's not much of a mystery - in fact, we know at least one of the participants in the robbery from the beginning.

The attractive Janis Carter stands out as the reporter.

Entertaining if not great.
