ALEX NIGHT is a Beverly Hills private eye and wannabe mystery author who trudges down the mean streets, neither tarnished nor afraid, but awfully anxious to get back to his typewriter. Unfortunately, the screwy cases he takes on and the parade of has-beens, never-wases, starlets, whores, studio executives, jewel thieves, con men, perverts, thugs, cops and assorted other characters don't make it easy.
Played slightly tongue-in-cheek and sporting one hellacious pun of a title, A. Night in Beverly Hills (2003) is a hoot. Edgar Award-winning author Andrew J. Fenady shows a deft hand at blending movie trivia and a fondness for the classic crime and detective films of the thirties and forties -- but then, what do you expect from the man who wrote The Man with Bogart's Face?
