Featuring the film debut of British screen siren and post-war sex symbol Christine Norden (Black Widow, Mine Own Executioner), this Soho-set Brit Noir tells the story of two wartime friends whose civilian lives take very different paths. Complemented by an excellent score by Benjamin Frankel (The Importance Of Being Earnest), Nightbeat (12) is available to own on DVD, RRP £9.99, from 22nd June 2015, as part of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.
Don and Andy, two young commando sergeants, are demobilised from the army. Unable to find jobs that suit, they both join the police – where Don does well and is soon promoted, but Andy’s rebellious nature makes it hard for him to accept discipline. When the lure of easy money rears its head, Andy finds it hard to resist.
Nighbeat is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
