Editorial Reviews

After the sudden death of magazine publisher Colonel Ryder, his nephew, Tony (Martin) inherits the magazine and has big plans to expand it. While negotiating a loan from the bank, Tony gets a call from a detective surrounding his uncle's death. It turns out Colonel Ryder died in his hotel room with a smile on his face and a young woman (MacLaine) was seen fleeing his room wearing only a towel. Suspicious of this woman and afraid the magazine's wholesome image may be tarnished and their loan denied, Tony asks the detective to stick around and find her. What ensues is a series of misunderstandings.

5.0 out of 5 stars All In a Night's Work August 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderfully charming romantic comedy, that has a Cinderella-like feel to it, as the worker in research (heroine) gets the owner of the company in the end (hero). This is the type of movie that can be watched over and over again without losing its flair. I love the twists in this one, and really funny misunderstandings, and the great chemistry between the two leads. This is a very cute movie that is a must have for any romance and comedy lovers...a keeper

4.0 out of 5 stars hilarious caper comedy August 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
ALL IN A NIGHT'S WORK pairs up Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine for an hilarious comedy full of mistaken identities, wrong conclusions, blackmail and counter-blackmail. It's a rare treat.

When a mysterious half-naked girl is seen running from a Palm Beach hotel room containing the deceased publishing tycoon Colonel Ryder, an overzealous private investigator tracks her all the way back to New York. It turns out that she is Katie Robbins (Shirley MacLaine), an employee of Ryder's research department. Ryder's nephew Paul (Dean Martin), the new president of the company, is assigned the task of discovering Katie's true "motives".

MacLaine and Martin have a brilliant comic chemistry in this bubbly, fast-paced romantic comedy. They had previously co-starred in "Artists and Models" (1955), "Some Came Running" (1958), "Career" (1959"), and "Ocean's Eleven" in 1960 (with "What a Way to Go!" as their follow-up to this movie in 1964).

Shirley MacLaine's delicious wardrobe was designed by Edith Head, with an underrated, jazzy score composed by Andre Previn. The strong ensemble cast includes Gale Gordon (aka Mr Mooney from "The Lucy Show"), Charlie Ruggles, Mabel Albertson, Jerome Cowan, Cliff Robertson, Norma Crane and Jack Weston.

The DVD features a sharp anamorphic print with a mono soundtrack and optional English subtitles. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).

5.0 out of 5 stars EFFICIENT COMEDY September 2, 2010
This is a fast paced comedy. There are no dull moments and the movie zips along. This is a movie I can and have watched over and over. In all the viewings I have noticed an interesting scene. In the middle of the movie Shirley and Marge are walking through the front doors of the Ryder bldg and heading toward the elevators. A man walks by, bumps into and maybe grabs a little of Marge's rear. That had to be a prank by the guy. Maybe he was the producer or director. The reaction of Marge is priceless.

One of my favorite lines is from the picture on the DVD cover(upper left). Dean states, "I was helping her into her coat." Cliff responds, "What was she doing? Crawling into it?"

Screwball comedy, yes, fast paced, no. It was nice to see Shirley Maclain so young you almost do not recognize her.
