Bogart, as retired mobster turned bigtime gambler, is easy to take.

Top Critic

In spite of its slap-bang construction and its hour-and-three-quarters length, the picture does move with precision and steadily maintained suspense.

Top Critic

Strong acting from a superb cast make it more than watchable, though both propaganda and direction are less than inspired.

An excellent Warner Brothers actioner from 1942.

Top Critic

Bogart is on decent enough form and the usual suspects, including Conrad Veidt and Peter Lorre, lurk in the shadows as they often did in these vehicles.

Radio Times

Often-underrated director Vincent Sherman demonstrates a fine feel for the ambiance of 1940s New York, with plenty of machine-gun dialogue to spice up the proceedings.

Audience Reviews for All Through the Night


"The first one I tag, I'm gonna kick right in the swastika."Starchie (Jackie Gleason) That's all I have to say about that.

This film was the bridge for Bogie between The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca and is quite an odd duck of a movie. An at times uneasy mixture of crime drama, nazi threat propaganda and comedy it is strongest in the comedy element with some of the great Warners stock company doing what they do best. You just can not beat these old films for amazing talent in even the tiniest roles. A slightly sharper focus could have made this a classic but even as is it is highly enjoyable.
