Description by

For a couple of newlyweds there's frustration rather than consummation as their NYC honeymoon suite becomes a beehive of all-night activity for cops and robbers and even a body that won't stay put.

Just arrived in Manhattan, the newly hitched Horace and Millie are country bumpkins who need to make their next few hours together count, as Army draftee Horace leaves for induction at 6 the following morning. A pair of thugs murdered their hotel room's previous occupant, a rival racketeer, and now sneak in and out, trying to recover the body. The screwball situation escalates when Horace and Millie become prisoners of a notorious gangster.

One Thrilling Night was one of star John Beal's favorite films because it gave him the opportunity to do slapstick in his role of the husband who's such a boob that he hangs the "Do Not Disturb" sign inside the room. This crazy blend of gangsters and bedroom farce also pleased the critics, with Harrison's Reports labeling it an "exceptionally good" comedy with "amusing situations and witty dialogue" and Variety praising the dialogue and calling it "downright funny."
