Bebe Daniels once again plays an intrepid -- and somewhat foolhardy -- girl reporter in Paramount's What a Night!. A spoiled socialite, Dorothy Winston (Daniels) decides to prove that she's a valuable member of society by becoming a news hound. She manages to get the goods on mobster boss Mike Corney (Wheeler Oakman) but nearly ends up in a cement kimono as a result. Her efforts win both the respect and love of her hard-bitten city editor Joe Madison (Neil Hamilton). The subtitles for What a Night! were penned by Herman J. Mankiewicz, a former New York newspaperman who certainly knew whereof he wrote.
