Critic Reviews for History Is Made At Night
History Is Made at Night is a patchwork quilt genre bender that stands as one of Frank Borzage's supreme achievements.
A go-for-broke approach to genre conventions imbues History is Made at Night with a sparkling infusion of "what comes next," making it feel more alive than most movies from the era.
Borzage's gift is that he makes this bizarre, convoluted story somehow flow, while feeling totally natural and honest. The emotions felt in it are absolutely genuine, and it truly is a thing of beauty.
a wild and entertaining mis-mash of styles, tones, and genres, a kind of barely controlled chaos reflected in its production
Audience Reviews for History Is Made At Night
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.
