Remember the Night
A New York attorney takes pity on a shoplifter he’s prosecuting, and complicates their relationship by inviting her to his home for Christmas.
Dir Mitchell Leisen
With Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Beulah Bondi
A New York attorney (MacMurray) takes pity on a shoplifter he’s prosecuting (Stanwyck); he gets her out on bail and invites her to his family home for Christmas – which somewhat complicates their relationship. There’s genuine chemistry between Stanwyck and MacMurray in their first film together, an amusing and affecting blend of courtroom drama, road movie and romance written by Preston Sturges.
