4.6 out of 5 stars

Buy this if only to see Loretta Young in her beautiful prime. She has never looked better and the remastering of sound and vision is great. I'm not a big Irene Dunne fan so haven't watched the two films in this 4-film set which feature her, but if you are a Loretta Young fan you can't go wrong with this!

A Night to Remember (Richard Wallace, 1942, 88')

A mystery writer (Brian Aherne) and his newlywed wife (Loretta Young) move into a Greenwich Village (NYC) apartment and find themselves with a corpse and a half dozen red herrings.

The mystery comedy film is directed by Richard Wallace, based on the novel The Frightened Stiff by Kelley Roos.
Aherne recognizes the basement apartment as a former speakeasy, and together with Young figures out that all the residents are being blackmailed by a man who used to be a private investigator and who also made all the people being blackmailed live in one building to keep an eye on them.

The mixture of comedy and film noir works not least due to excellent acting in all roles and the speedy way in which new situations occur and corpses turn up. The funny and the macabre are balanced on the funny side and make for an interesting and highly entertaining movie.

I have only watched one film so far - Theodora Goes Wild - but this was first rate. Irene Dunne is not given much chance to sing but is otherwise in good form.

I have so far enjoyed this DVD collection. I would however question the tag of 'screwball comedy'. I do not think it strictly applies to all of the films here.
That said however, I have enjoyed these films a lot. Loretta Young looks particularly ravishing in 'a night to remember', which is a well paced film with fun performances.
I would recomend this collection, but question the title's validity.
