Featuring the film debut of British screen siren and post-war sex symbol Christine Norden, this Soho-set Brit Noir tells the story of two wartime friends whose civilian lives take very different paths. Featuring Ben Frankel's excellent musical score, Nightbeat is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
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 he becomes involved with a "good-time girl", Andy finds himself on a downward slope which puts both his career and life in jeopardy.
