  • SpacePirate's rating of the film This Could Be the Night

    Jean Simmons is one of my fav actresses of the period, criminally underrated, and Wise is a tight director, so its no surprise that I enjoyed this one. Surprised I am the first to review it here. Pretty unique storyline but one that is a bit creaky and doesnt translate too well to modern viewing. Still worth a look for a solid late 50s comedy with a bit of a battle of the sexes edge. 3 stars
