Editorial Reviews

June Wyatt catches her husband in an adulterous embrace with a floozie. She heads to Reno for a quickie divorce only to discover that there is a six week waiting period. John Wyatt, her repentant husband, follows her in a desperate attempt to win her back. He has his work cut out for him when the beautiful and newly single June, decides to take full advantage of handsome suitors and the wild Reno nightlife.

Night Life In Reno was the last film appearance for Virginia Valli who had starred in Universal studio productions throughout the silent era. Beautiful Hollywood High School graduate Carmelita Geraghty was a leading lady throughout the 20s. In the 1930s she played a succession of temptresses in Poverty Row productions. Notorious stripper Dixie Lee has a cameo role as the "other" woman.

ALPHA VIDEO offers bargain priced, often hard-to-find vintage movies that are ideal for those willing to skip DVD extras. Their transfers show no evidence of restoration, so quality varies from one title to the next, with "fair to good" being the average.

.
NIGHT LIFE IN RENO (1931) has potential greatness snatched from it by pre-Noir Hollywood's propensity for happy endings. (Warning: plot spoilers ahead!)

In this efficient Supreme Pictures production, June Wyatt (Virginia Valli) leaves for Nevada to divorce philandering John (Jameson Thomas). The remorseful husband follows, is unsuccessful at a reconciliation and in despair he gets wasted at a Reno gambling house. While in his cups John meets the equally drunk Roy Carleton (Arthur Housman), who's plaintiff in his own divorce action.

The story bogs down for the first and only time as slurry Roy and John hunt for two "nifties" willing to party with them. John has bad luck so Roy calls a lady he's just met and asks her to bring a girlfiend along. His new friend turns out to be June (using an alias). She's got just enough aplomb to go through with the double date while watching John cozy up to her girlfriend, Gwen (Dorothy Christy).

Their fun is interrupted by Roy's wife, Dorothy (a badly overacting Carmelita Geraghty), who begs him in vain not to go through with the divorce. Following a minor ruckus, the two couples separate. June goes home with Roy, a rather upset John escorts Gwen to a cab.

Back at his rented room, Roy gets grabby so June phones her husband, hoping to be rescued. John hangs up on her. June storms out of Roy's place just as Dorothy arrives. She confronts Roy, this time not with a palm of peace but with a pistol.

I think there's one shot of Reno and I'm pretty sure the rest of the movie was filmed in a studio in LA. It's a nice very old movie about a woman who finds her husband cheating on her and goes to Reno to get a divorce and party hardy. I like the saying, "Well, my hat!" It's interesting to note, at least in this movie, how every dressed to the T to go out in Reno, I mean tuxedo and top hat and all. It's also interesting to note how liberated the women were, and apparently according to this movie it was pretty easy to hit on them. Also, the actors do a really good job of acting drunk. I think in later movies of the 50's you actors don't act as drunk because it would make them look bad. I think the 30's Prohibition really turned the country into prudes.
