Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Most of the Fox productions of the 1930s had a "continental" flavor, and Thunder in the Night was no exception. Edmund Lowe stars as amorous Budapest police captain Torok, whose best friend Count Alvinczy (Paul Cavanaugh) has just been elected president of the Hungarian cabinet. When Alvinczy's future is threatened by a blackmailer, Torok tries to get to the bottom of things. It isn't long before the blackmailer is murdered, with suspicion shifting from one character to another. The most likely suspect is Alvinczy's lovely wife Madaline (Karen Morley), but Torok wisely deduces that appearances are deceiving. Thunder in the Night was based on A Woman Lies, a play by Ladislas Fodor.
