A jam-packed programmer with enough plot, stars, and behind-the-camera talent to fill at least two movies, NIGHT WORLD was shoe-horned into a B-picture format. Gangster Karloff's New York nightclub is the place where the paths of a wide variety of characters cross. Hoofer Clarke spots

wealthy but miserable young souse Ayres drinking himself to death and decides to woo him away from the bottle, which will also solve her problem regarding slimy gangster Raft, who has fixed his sights on her. Ayres drinks because he has just learned his mother, Hopper (recently acquitted of

murdering his father), killed her husband simply because she hated the sight of him. Meanwhile, Karloff becomes enraged when he discovers his wife, Revier, is having an affair with producer Hopton. Unhappy with her husband's ire, Revier secretly removes the bullets from Karloff's gun, leaving him

helpless when racketeers come gunning for him. Clarke and Ayres witness the murder, but are saved from the gangsters when the cops arrive. The cast is a strange and fascinating amalgam of performers who were all rising to stardom. Karloff and Clarke had just been in FRANKENSTEIN, Raft was fresh

from SCARFACE (Karloff was also in that one), and Ayres was coming off an incredible debut in ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT. A real curiosity.
