Audience Reviews for Night Must Fall


good psychological thriller with strong performances by the three leads. i've never been a fan of robert montgomery but he's remarkably effective here. it's obviously based on a play and goes on a little long but it's suspenseful and well worth watching.

Super Reviewer

A nice older film noir brought to an exciting finish involving a hat box. Perhaps not thrilling at face value, the entertainment worthiness is high.

Super Reviewer

Unsettling thriller, with Robert Montgomery as a suspected murderer and Rosalind Russell as the uptight woman who both loathes him and is attracted to him. It is a bit long, but they, along with Dame May Whitty, give top performances.
