Trivia

When Gloves and Sunshine take the sidewalk elevator down to the basement of the toy warehouse - after taking the ID's off the real saboteurs from Detroit - they show the cards to a man outside the meeting room. The heading of the card reads "Gesangverein Aurora", which translates to Aurora Singing Club. See more »

Goofs

On the office door at the toy warehouse there appears to be a deadbolt lock on the door about a foot above the doorknob. However, there is no corresponding bolt and plate on the edge of the door - a shortcut often taken by set carpenters. See more »

Quotes

Franz Ebbing: You realize you will never get out of here. Every entrance is guarded.
Alfred "Gloves" Donahue: Aaah, don't try that line on me, Jack. This is Broadway, not Berlin!
Franz Ebbing: It's a great pity, Mr. Donahue, that you and I should oppose each other. We have so much in common.
Alfred "Gloves" Donahue: Yeah? How's that?
Franz Ebbing: You are a man of action. You take what you want, and so do we. You have no respect for democracy - neither do we. It's clear we should be allies.
Alfred "Gloves" Donahue: It's clear you are screwy. I've been a refistered Democrat ever since I could vote. I may not ...

"Guys and Dolls" meets "The House on 92nd Street"
8 August 2006 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Humphrey Bogart and a cast of comedians and character actors make it "All Through the Night," a spy story set in New York City. Bogart plays Gloves Donahue, a bigwig in the sports world - gambler, bookie, and he likes to get tourists involved in rigged card games. His boys include Jackie Gleason, William Demarest, Phil Silvers, and Frank McHugh - a bunch of characters right out of Damon Runyon if there ever were any. When the baker who makes Gloves' favorite cheesecake is murdered, Gloves is determined to find out what happened. The trail leads to a spy ring run by sinister Conrad Veidt with assistance from Judith Anderson, her dachshund Hansel, and Peter Lorre. Lorre doubles as a pianist for a nightclub singer (Kaaren Verne) whose father is in a concentration camp and being used as leverage so she will assist the spies.

This is a fast-paced, funny film made shortly before Pearl Harbor. Its underlying message is that the Nazis aren't going to be content with a few eastern European countries; they want it all. As propaganda, it goes down easily with a terrific cast and some hilarious moments, particularly when Bogart and Demarest attend a secret meeting posing as Nazis.

The plot, of course, is preposterous, and the notes that Bogart finds in Veidt's desk are, for some reason, written in English instead of German, but none of that takes away from the enjoyment of the movie.

The performances are all excellent, but Bogart is a wonder. His no-nonsense, honest delivery and perfect timing work beautifully in comedy as well as drama.

This is a delightful movie - don't miss it.
