      Comments about Night is Young, The (1935) (MOD):

      Ramon Novarro's final starring film for MGM turns out to be his best. THE NIGHT IS YOUNG is an updating of THE STUDENT PRINCE (1927), which Novarro had starred in with Norma Shearer. But the updating is along 1930s cynical lines and has a bite that's missing from the froth of PRINCE. The songs by Romberg and Hammerstein are first rate and, indeed, have lived on after the film itself has been forgotten. Many songs are incorporated into the story-telling and are part of the action instead of separate production numbers that bring the story to a halt. Evelyn Laye is delightful and continued her successful career back in her native Britain, which was certainly Hollywood's loss. The supporting cast is superb with Edward Everett Horton, Charles Butterworth, Una Merkel, and Herman Bing as particular standouts. This film is a winner all the way around!
