"A Shriek in the Night" is a static mystery that is dull. A young Ginger Rogers investigates the sucide of a playboy. She and Lyle Talbot sit around an apartment and wait for the telephone to ring. Best known for playing the Little Rascals/Our Gang villian Mr. Crutch in the short subject, "A Shrimp for a Day," Clarence Wilson portrays Ginger Rogers boss.
Like "The World Gone Mad," "A Shriek in the Night" does not belong in this collection. perhaps the distributor meant to put in "A Scream in the Night," a B-movie quickie that starred a young Lon Chaney Jr..
