The Night Court (1927)

** (out of 4)

Early talkie from Warner has police raiding a night club and dragging every performer there into court. At trial the defense asks that the performers be able to do their act to show there wasn't anything wrong them. THE NIGHT COURT really isn't a good movie but film buffs are going to want to check it out for a number of reasons. The biggest being that it followed THE JAZZ SINGER from earlier in the year and was a good example of how sound really was taking everything over. When viewing the film today, it was rather amazing to hear how good the audio quality was and it really makes you wonder why so many of the talkies from 1928-31 turned out so poorly. I understand that several different recording styles were tried but this short features the technology sounding pretty good. With that said, the actual performers aren't all that memorable. Even the best act here is only fair so it's doubtful anyone will be leaving this film and looking for a CD copy to listen to.
