History Is Made At Night
This romantic tragedy begins with socialite Jean Arthur and handsome head waiter Charles Boyer "meeting cute." But there's nothing cute about Arthur's estranged husband, shipbuilder Colin Clive. Insanely jealous, Clive arranges for the ship on which his wife and her lover are travelling to hit an iceberg.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the silliest and therefore most magnetic of all '30s romantic melodramas."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A type of unbelievable melodrama that went out of fashion ages ago."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"History Is Made at Night is a patchwork quilt genre bender that stands as one of Frank Borzage's supreme achievements."
‑ Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine
