This Is The Night (1932)

  "...and I thought he made a splendid figure"

With Charles Ruggles.

This Is The Night - Review is taken from 'The Films of Cary Grant' by Donald Deschner (1973):

"It was my introduction to Lily Damita, and I found her altogether charming.  Cary Grant was also new to me, and I thought he made a splendid figure.  Of course you all know Charlie Ruggles and Roland Young.  It was as though they had walked right over from the One Hour With You sets and continued their ridiculous and amusing relationship in this picture. 

The sets of This Is The Night are right up to the high standard of Paramount's good taste, and the photography of Victor Milner is exceptionally beautiful."

On this date...1932. This Is The Night.

On 8th April 1932, Cary Grant made his film debut in the Paramount Picture...
...This Is The Night.

The film was directed by Frank Tuttle and starred Lili Damita, Charlie Ruggles and Roland Young.

The Times (London) discribed it as "...a perfectly ordinary and unformalised farce. The plot hardly worth repeating, for it is occupied only with the ritual humours of infidelity and intoxocation." Remember this was 1932!

Although the review did find the setting of Venice to be "...rather more interesting than usual" and the main players "skillful".

The film runs for 80 mins.
