Critic Reviews for All Through the Night
Bogart, as retired mobster turned bigtime gambler, is easy to take.
In spite of its slap-bang construction and its hour-and-three-quarters length, the picture does move with precision and steadily maintained suspense.
Strong acting from a superb cast make it more than watchable, though both propaganda and direction are less than inspired.
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.
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
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.
The synopsis sounds funny, but this movie is really great. It has a good cast, and an interesting story.
All Through the Night is a sort of fun and kind of colorful story of some New York gamblers out to stop a Nazi spy cell during WWII. The whole cast is fun and Vincent Sherman's direction has a lot of film noir elements to it. I'm sure the comedic elements were hilarious at the time but something in the punchline must've eroded in the near 70 years since All Through the Night came out. Its a fun and entertaining movie but it doesn't exactly fall into the required viewing category of Humphrey Bogart's body of work.
