When his wife, Irene (Jean Arthur), plans to divorce him, wealthy and cruel businessman Bruce Vail (Colin Clive) sends his chauffeur to her Paris hotel room so he can catch her in a "compromising" position. Instead, Bruce interrupts a masked thief, who kidnaps Irene. Later, the thief -- head waiter Paul Dumond (Charles Boyer) -- reveals to Irene that he overheard the plot and wanted to help. After a romantic evening, Irene falls in love with Paul, but Bruce will stop at nothing to ruin them.

Audience Reviews for History Is Made At Night

  • Jun 05, 2018
    Charles Boyer and Jean Arthur share some nice chemistry in the standard love story that is not standard at all. Arthur is married unhappily to Colin Clive (yep, he of Frankenstein fame) and the reason for her unhappiness is as grownup as any I've seen in any movie ever. The film flickers meanwhile from screwball comedy to melodrama to disaster flick in the blink of an eye and, rather than distract, the method keeps one involved. Keep an eye out for this one, as is a classic.

    what an odd film that covers every genre from romantic comedy to thriller to heavy melodrama to disaster film! the lovely jean arthur has great chemistry with her dashing leading man charles boyer, but their love is thwarted by her dastardly, and psychotically jealous, ex-husband colin clive. the original dr frankenstein died shortly after this film was completed

    This is a very interesting movie because it combines so many different elements of different genres, but it gets to be too much, and I really didn't like the ending.
