Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 09/15/2005
"[O]ne of the first films Joseph L. Mankiewicz directed, and the only one Lee Strasberg ever helped write....It's a loony, enjoyably overwrought ride while it lasts."

Description by OLDIES.com:

A man awakens in a Honolulu hospital with no memory of his identity. He has three personal items: a wallet, a letter from an angry ex-lover, and a note from one Larry Cravat, an apparent business associate. Searching for Cravat, the amnesiac heads to Los Angeles, enlisting the help of a saloon singer (Nancy Guild), he boss (Richard Conte) and a police lieutenant (Lloyd Nolan). When he starts asking questions, he's blindsided by goons and chased by cops...but ultimately makes a shocking discovery. This exciting drama will keep you guessing until the very end.

Product Description:

Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz produced work within numerous filmic genres, yet always retained his personal touch, which he developed in order to explore and analyze the self-conscious characters he created. SOMEWHERE IN THE NIGHT is his film noir--although many of his movies exhibited a noir-ish tone--and unfolds in post-WWII L.A. George Taylor (John Hodiak, THE PEOPLE AGAINST O'HARA) is a soldier who returns from the war after a grenade left him alive but without his memory. All he has to go on is his name and a letter from an old girlfriend, informing him of how much she hates him. Taylor sets about attempting to locate his lost identity, finding a note informing him that his "friend" George Cravat has deposited $5,000 to his account. When Taylor goes to claim it, he triggers a stream of encounters with people who he has apparently double-crossed in some way, but enlists the aid of a sympathetic cabaret singer who knew his former girlfriend. The plot is full of twists that keep the suspense level at top notch, and the cast of B-actors all turn in fine performances, creating a classic, moody noir with dashes of comedy. John Ireland (LITTLE BIG HORN, THE BUSHWHACKERS) narrates.
