History Is Made at Night

1h 37m Drama, Comedy, Romance 1937

Haunting drama from arch romantic director Frank Borzage about a wealthy divorcée (Jean Arthur) who falls for a charming Parisian waiter (Charles Boyer) whose insanely jealous ex-husband (Colin Clive) will do anything to get her back. Leo Carrillo provides plenty of levity as Boyer’s faithful and ebullient buddy and head chef.

“It is melodrama, certainly, but melodrama played with so much conviction and exquisite sensitivity that all the viewer’s defenses are destroyed.” ~Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
