"ALL IN A NIGHT'S WORK pairs up Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine for an hilarious comedy full of mistaken identities, wrong conclusions, blackmail and counter-blackmail. It's a rare treat.
When a mysterious half-naked girl is seen running from a Palm Beach hotel room containing the deceased publishing tycoon Colonel Ryder, an overzealous private investigator tracks her all the way back to New York. It turns out that she is Katie Robbins (Shirley MacLaine), an employee of Ryder's research department. Ryder's nephew Paul (Dean Martin), the new president of the company, is assigned the task of discovering Katie's true "motives".
MacLaine and Martin have a brilliant comic chemistry in this bubbly, fast-paced romantic comedy. They had previously co-starred in "Artists and Models" (1955), "Some Came Running" (1958), "Career" (1959"), and "Ocean's Eleven" in 1960 (with "What a Way to Go!" as their follow-up to this movie in 1964).
Shirley MacLaine's delicious wardrobe was designed by Edith Head, with an underrated, jazzy score composed by Andre Previn. The strong ensemble cast includes Gale Gordon (aka Mr Mooney from "The Lucy Show"), Charlie Ruggles, Mabel Albertson, Jerome Cowan, Cliff Robertson, Norma Crane and Jack Weston.
The DVD features a sharp anamorphic print with a mono soundtrack and optional English subtitles. (Single-sided, single-layer disc)."
