Night Nurse

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

A wonderfully pacy thriller, with sparkling dialogue, a nice line in blackish humour, an undertow of pre-Hays Code eroticism, and Stanwyck in full-hard-bitten cry as a nurse foiling a plot to kill two little girls for their inheritance. With neither she nor Gable (in support as a villainous chauffeur; Lyon makes little impact as the nominal hero) worrying about niceties of image, it's tough, taut and fun.
