  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Toujours aussi efficace et séduisant, le metteur en scène William Wellman nous gratifie d'une bienvenue comédie dramatique avec comme notoire particularité, la présence du jeune Clark Gable dans le rôle d'un brutal méchant... www.cinefiches.com

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Wonderfully naughty and required viewing for fans of Barbara Stanwyck.

  3. Log Lady's rating of the film Night Nurse

    3.5 stars. A solid and fun pre-Code flick with just the right dose of ridiculous plot elements, and a cute Stanwyck to boot!

  4. elenagallen's rating of the film Night Nurse

    I have no idea how a crime drama with such twisted dark plot could be so sexy, fresh and funny. It must be the pre-code.

  5. Renton47's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Sometimes the code of ethics needs a policing on the basis of other ethics. Not unlike the idea of a 'Code era' which would send fun romps like this into less suggestive territory. Or a nurse throwing out the rule book to crack down on a ring of child murderers. A total joy and breeze at 70 mins, another 30 mins to elaborate the plot might have improved the stakes or harmed the breakneck pace.

  6. Sophia Park's rating of the film Night Nurse

    men's rights activists should protest the portrayal of men in this film because it is not at all flattering. Stanwyck can't save this.

  7. Blumes's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Memorable flare and pre-code fun, with holes in character development and pacing.

  8. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Night Nurse

    "Warners worked best for his temperament and the kind of pictures he wanted to make." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/07/episode-20-william-wellman-1929-1934.html

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Solid early Barbara Stanwyck vehicle that starts as a sexy pre-code number about a trainee nurse before getting bogged down in the second half in a story about con men, a bogus doctor, under nourished children and a trust fund. Regardless, Stanwyck shines here. Also of note for an early supporting turn by Clark Gable as the conniving brute of a chauffer. Interesting relic.

  10. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Night Nurse

    She cares. Highly recommended.

    Starving babies to death in order to control their trust fund through their alcohoolic mother.The mos sinister plot i've ever heard about.The hero is a bootleger who kill the chaffeur/gigolo in the end.So breathtaking that i almost forgout Barbara and her usual gorgeous self.

  12. thesecretlivesofcats's rating of the film Night Nurse

    You could do a lot worse if you were looking for a great pre-code movie. It keeps a light, engaging and charming tone yet it dips into some very dire subject matter. Stanwyck and Blondell are tough cookies. Clark Gable--in an early role I am guessing--is a very tall man.

  13. Terri Wise's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Joan Blondell and Barbara Stanwyck dish some great dialogue in this pre-code entertainment.

  14. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Night Nurse

    First part is amazing but second part is completely different as like Nurse Marjorie (1920).

  15. Dave's rating of the film Night Nurse

    Yet another solid Wellman film. I know that Stanwyck stars here, but I adore Joan Blondell.

  16. Edward Copeland's rating of the film Night Nurse

    This pre-Code classic just gets better with age thanks to early performances from Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Blondell and particularly stylish direction by William Wellman. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/08/nursing-people-has-always-seemed-like.html

  17. MarcH's rating of the film Night Nurse

    One of my favorite pre-Codes. Blondell: "Take my advice, keep away from interns."

  18. Th MZA's rating of the film Night Nurse

    B. Stanwyck with her fists on her hips and a look on her face that combines "world-weary" with "sweet" still delivers a charge, but the story goes limp and the lines don't snap the way Baby Face's did. Maybe you had to be there in 1931 for the gangster boyfriend's punchline to have the intended effect; maybe it was never hilarious. I liked her two zits that cut through the soft focus and made themselves known.
