All Through the Night is a lighter affair than most for Humphrey Bogart, using his trademark witty patter to good effect in the more comedic parts of what is essentially a story about small-time hoods versus Fifth Columnists. Bogart is surrounded by clowns doing a variety of shticks, and the way he gets wrangled into uncovering a Nazi plot feels mundane (his favorite baker is killed), but as the plot unwinds, a certain excitement builds, and the film offers a number of good action set pieces. Those moments are pretty much the only times the film takes itself seriously, so in the end, it might be true to say All Through the Night feels a little inconsequential and flighty. But it's amusing enough, not that the Nazi infiltration of America is anything to laugh at, he said with his 2018 perspective.
The wiener dog was behind it all!
For an almost unknown Bogart movie, this was surprisingly entertaining.
