Full movie description "Night Court":Judge Moffett is as crooked as they come and the Board of Judicial Corruption is after him. He sends his mistress, Lil Baker, away to prevent her from being subpoenaed to testify against him. While living in hiding Lil befriends a neighbor Mary Thomas. During a visit at Mary's apartment next door Lil accidentally drops Moffett's bankbook from her purse (showing a high balance for 1932 of $60,000). When Mary finds it she realizes it belongs to Lil and returns it. Moffett realizes Mary must have read the contents and is concerned she will share the details about the bankbook so he finagles a scheme that brings her to his court on a trumped up charge. To keep her quiet the judge sends her to prison for six months. Mike, Mary's husband, is overcome with grief; when he comes to his senses, he talks to Mary who tells him about the book. This gets Mike beat up and put on a boat to South America, but he jumps ship and plots his revenge.
Reviews of the Night Court"Night Court" is a delightful programmer released by MGM and featuring Phillips Holmes, who apparently was somewhat popular during the early talkies Era, mainly as a Paramount contract player. This was the first time I saw him on screen in a full-fledged-starring role (not counting his brief appearance in the all-star "Dinner at Eight", which I almost did not notice) and I must say I was favorably impressed by his performance and screen personae. I had read tidbits about his personal life and his films, and had another idea about him; he's nothing of what I expected. In my opinion, at least in this film, he has a strong screen presence, good acting ability, even when performing in scenes with seasoned pros such as Walter Huston (one of the finest actors of the American Cinema). He really makes his character likable and believable.
Holmes impersonates a cab driver who is extremely happily married to Anita Page's character, who plays very well a naive housewife, completely in love with her husband and utterly devoted to their only child (a cute little baby), who's unaware of her unexpected & tangent involvement with a corrupt judge's (played perfectly by the great Walter Huston) shenanigans & shady doings, who uses his unscrupulous lover (Noel Francis) for his evil purposes.
I wonder why Mary Carlisle (playing Lewis Stone's (a good Judge who's investigating Huston's corrupt Court) daughter) was billed fourth or fifth in the cast and Noel Francis the last, if the latter has much more time on screen and a meatier role.
John Miljan plays a villainous lawyer, skillfully as usual.
An interesting, seldom seen and highly entertaining Pre-Code (Check the Huston's Court hearings).
I quite don't understand why Maltin gives this film only two stars in his Guide; it at least deserves three and a half!
