Lili Damita Striptease in 'This is the Night' (1932)

   A scene from This Is The Night (1932) featuring the divine and delightful Lili Damita (aka Mrs Errol Flynn I). It’s not a ground breaking film and is a little dated mostly due to the stilted, play like direction. However, with a great performance by Lili, a hilarious few scenes from comedy genius Thelma Todd, a couple of talented wits in Charles Ruggles and Roland and an oh-too-handsome idiot played by Cary Grant, it’s a pretty decent film. If you loved Norma Shearer’s Private Lives (1931) you’ll love This Is The Night (1932).

  1. Charlie is great in this film. Of course, I'm a big Charlie fan. Oh, Lili is good, too - lol - and Roli ... and Thelma and Claire ...
    Oh, and Private Lives is on TCM Nov 10, 2015 at 5pm PST. Just sayin' ...
