Description by OLDIES.com:
Big Town After Dark was the third of four movies based on the popular radio series "Big Town." Combining the hard-boiled dialogue of film noir with the sassy, fast-talking romance of His Girl Friday, the "Big Town" series had widespread appeal, moving from radio to film to a television series in the 1950s.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 13 ratings.
BIG TOWN began on the radio October 19, 1937 with Edward G. Robinson and Claire Trevor in the leads. Robinson, the first of many to play Steve Wilson, managing editor, in real life suffered from mike fright so it was surprising he played the role for so long. Under different sponsors and different networks, the series eventually made the transition to television (two years before it went off the air on radio) in 1950. Don't let the reference guides fool you, this movie series was based on the radio program, NOT the television series. The first movie in the series had a true flair for the radio program, but this entry, BIG TOWN AFTER DARK, comes a close second. John Holland plys the role of the District Attorney in this movie. For anyone who doesn't find him familair, Holland played the role of Professor Coleman in THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN (1963) and MADMEN OF MANDORAS (1964).
