All Through the Night 1942 8+ 0ut of 10
A great 1940's movie about a NY Gambler who gets involved in and uncovers a deadly web of spies as a result of his favorite cheesecake baker getting killed. (His character supposedly had cheesecake for several meals a day....The cheesecake diet and yet isn't fat ---go figure....but the story isn't really about cheesecake.)
The film is Humphrey Bogart at his best in a fast paced, action packed and comedy infused murder/spy adventure. There are numerous gun battles and chases and even when the film takes a minute for a bit of dialogue the dialogue is well written and interesting and moves the movies along. The cast is littered with talent --that includes the always interesting Peter Lorre and many other great actors of the time period. I had honestly never even heard of this movie before I recorded in on TCM one day. I found it a much better Nazi spy movie than Bogart's own overly talked about Casablanca---which is overated in my book.
