Synopsis by Hal Erickson
David Niven plays the new squire in a small Irish community. As snooty and restrictive as the old squire was warmhearted and generous, Niven quickly earns the animosity of the locals. Eventually they draw lots for the privilege of bumping Niven off. Before the cad is humanized by the love of Yvonne DeCarlo, the villagers contrive to scare him off the premises by faking a local ghost--which rouses the fury of the town's genuine wraith. Tonight's the Night was originally released in Great Britain as Happy Ever After.
