Gail Russell's car, a Chrysler convertible, is shown entering her driveway, and the license plate "40 R 116" is visible. In the film SUNSET BOULEVARD, William Holden's car, a Plymouth convertible, is described by Finance Man #2 as a "1946 Plymouth convertible, California license 40 R 116" See more »
"The Night has a Thousand Eyes" is a most engaging drama, with Edward G. Robinson giving his all to the role of a clairvoyant. A wonderful Robinson performance. Gail Russell is seen in one of her best film appearances. John Lund is well cast as Russell's doubting but supportive love interest.
The atmosphere created here has an almost hypnotic effect. Robinson is completely into his role and totally convincing.
That this film has not yet to date made it on video is incredible. Of all the lesser films that did so, this movie warrants attention. Paramount Pictures [us]--please take note.
