The Wagons Roll At Night is a fast-moving meller. Background is supplied by a traveling carnival operated by the tough and calloused Humphrey Bogart who succeeds in evading successive sheriffs to keep the show moving.

Yarn uses the carny atmosphere casually, sticking directly to the melodramatics of the story for audience attention throughout. There are several exciting episodes in which Eddie Albert works the troupe of lions in the cage of the one-ring tent.

Bogart delivers his usually capable characterization, putting plenty of zest into his role of the carny operator. Albert is excellent as the bumpkin, providing plenty of lightness and humor to the part.

Ray Enright’s direction focuses attention on the drama and excitement and keeps things moving at a consistently fast pace.
