Review by

This Francis X. Bushman vehicle was based on a story that had first appeared in the pages of The Ladies' World, a magazine that had recently voted Bushman the most popular male actor in the movies. The star is cast as one Mr. Curtis, a young adventurer who endeavors to rescue a family of Hungarian aristocrats from a gang of scurrilous kidnappers. To this end, he "borrows" the coat of a murdered reporter named Hunter, and spends the rest of the picture posing as the dead news-hound. In the midst of numerous perils, Hunter is forced to marry the lovely Lady Hermione to protect her from the villains -- and, to no one's surprise but his own, he ends up falling in love with her. One Wonderful Night was directed by E.H. Calvert, who spent most of the talkie era essaying small character parts in such films as the Marx Brothers' Horse Feathers.
