Another night, another club. Jigger Pine's quintet is sockin' 'em solid before hopping a boxcar to the next gig. Not much money in this life. But plenty of tumult involving a criminal (Lloyd Nolan), a songbird (Priscilla Lane), a siren (Betty Field) and those Blues in the Night (the famed title tune and other songs are by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer.) Anatole Litvak (The Snake Pit) directs this work packed with future filmmakers: scripter Robert Rossen (The Hustler), actors-turned-directors Richard Whorf (numerous TV series) and Elia Kazan (A Streetcar Named Desire), and Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), who provides the film's montages. Check your pulse if one of Siegel's inventive sequences doesn't provoke gasps of amazement!
