Broadway gambler "Gloves" Donahue (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find who killed the baker of his favorite cheesecake. He sees nightclub singer Leda Hamilton (Kaaren Verne) leaving the bakery. When her boss Marty Callahan's (Barton MacLane's) partner Joe Denning (Edward Brophy) is murdered, Leda and her accompanist Pepi (Peter Lorre) disappear. It turns out that beneath all of the mystery is a gang of Nazi operatives planning to blow up a battleship in New York harbor.Written by

A very funny war era movie. Bogart had played a gangster in comedies (Brother Orchid with Edward J. Robinson), but played it straight as a tough guy. This movie highlighted Bogart's great comedic timing which was also evident in harder edged movies from the same period: The Big Sleep, Casablanca, and the Maltese Falcon. All Through the Night makes a fun companion piece to these movies and like the others, has a great supporting cast.
