Tonight and Every Night has plenty of pace in its backstage tale [from the play Heart of the City by Lesley Storm], which gets slightly away from regulation formula to carry adequately the many showmanly production numbers.

Setting is a five-a-day music hall in London, which carries on with daily performances during the blitz through the courage of the performers, headed by American-born Rita Hayworth and the persistence of impresario Florence Bates. Romance is quickly developed between Hayworth and RAF pilot Lee Bowman.

Comedy specialty handled by Hayworth and Janet Blair, in twin bed setting and with both attired in woolen underwear, is neatly contrived and excellently presented by the two performers.

Marc Platt, plucked by Columbia from his featured role in the Broadway Oklahoma, makes a sensational debut and his finale stepping to a haranguing speech by Hitler is a showstopper.
