Department store salesgirl Joan Sutton suspects that her sister Eve is caught up in trouble involving stolen store merchandise with Carl Briggs. Briggs' mother is the store's advertising manager, and after Joan confides her concerns, Mrs. Briggs is found murdered. Under the command of blustering Capt. Holt (Sidney Toler) and blundering Sgt. Magee (Ted Healy), the police lock down the store with a group of straggling employees, customers, and an unknown killer amongst them. But it's the store's playboy owner Charley Phelps (Robert Young) who rises to the challenge and takes charge of the crisis.

In MGM's production history, THE LONGEST NIGHT is the studio's shortest feature film, released @ 51 minutes. During the main storyline, Ted Healy and 3 Stooges costar Kitty McHugh (HOI POLLOI, GENTS IN A JAM, LISTEN JUDGE) are bickering acquaintances... but in the closing scene, they are engaged. This development infers that THE LONGEST NIGHT's brief running time may be due more to edited footage, than a planned production outcome.

Reworked by MGM as THE BIG STORE (1941), starring The Marx Brothers.
