Outstanding performance by Clark Gable.


Clark Gable's performance in this film is outstanding. Just wanted to say.

I completely agree with you about Myrna in this film. I really didn't care much for the movie overall - really mainly just Gable and his exceptional performance, and the storyline involving the ill-fated nurse.

I just saw it for the first time last night and I hated the story, loved the set design and thought the acting was worse than a daytime soap opera. I like Clark Gable and love Myrna Loy, but they were both over the top in the melodramatic.

5/10 (I bumped it up for photography and set design)

Oh I loved him before he grew that mustache, before he became a sex symbol he usually played brutes, and he played them well. I think it was a movie about a nurse, Night Nurse I believe, has to be seen to be believed. He tried to kill two little sisters. Beating up their mother on a regular basis. Really a piece of work. I was surprised to see him being a nice character in this movie.
