Cinema Verite Perfectly Done Before Genre Became In Vogue
John Beal gives a great performance as an ordinary salesman who suffers a heart attack. Augusta Dabney is equally true-to-life as the wife. Karl Swenson and Jackson Beck are effective in small bits. If you ever want a time capsule to take you into life as it really was in 1957, you could not do better than That Night. John Newland's practiced eye for documentary has never been more advantageously used.
