Jack E. Leonard,
Based on a book by Dr.Harold Greenwald: The Call Girl a Social and Psychoanalytic Study. This film tells the story of a girl (Anne Francis) who becomes a high priced call girl. She is exploited by her madam (Kay Medford) until she finds a tough yet caring therapist (Lloyd Nolan) and straightens herself out. Written by
The storyline is straight forward, and there aren't any surprises or hooks in the plot, but the story explores motives and rationale, and is as frank and honest as a film on the subject could be in 1960.
Anne Francis gives a layer of realism to her character, and is in practically every scene. She carries the film, and delivers a great performance. Kay Medford, an actress that usually is cast in fluffier roles, is a delight to watch as a madam resigned to her station in life.
John Kerr, better known as Lt. Cable in South Pacific, is a great foil to Bobbie's attempts to better her position ... He's a guy you love to hate.
Lloyd Nolan is fine, as always, in his role, but he really doesn't have too much to do.
Girl of the Night is worth seeking out, especially if you are an Anne Francis fan ..
