Capturing the Soul of the Character

       Charming, handsome, tormented ... and oh, so very fascinating.

NIGHT MUST FALL was one of the few times in his movie career that Robert Montgomery had both a good script and the challenge of capturing a truly interesting character.  It was a real struggle to get the studio to make the movie, reportedly to the point of agreeing to put his own money into the production.  Three cheers for Mr. Montgomery for giving us Crazy Danny to love and cherish.**

You are more than welcome Kathy! This is one of those characters that you wish you knew more about his past. In my opinion, this is Bob at his very best. Of course I also love glamorous, funny Bob as well, but Bob was really proud of this performance and that says it all.
