"It is a memorable film, in title and in quality, blessed with an honest script, good direction and sound performances...a drama stated in the simplest human terms of comedy and sentiment, tenderness and generosity... warm, pleasant and unusually entertaining." - New York Times
A kind-hearted attorney (MacMurray) takes pity on the shoplifter (Stanwyck) he’s prosecuting and brings her home for the holidays, where his family mistakes her for his fiancée. Remember the Night segues from courtroom drama, to road movie, to small-town romance as MacMurray and Stanwyck negotiate an evolving relationship and conflicting identities as lovers on opposite sides of the law.
