The Long Night


Time Out says

Hollywood's cannibalisation (sometimes shot for shot) of Carné's Le Jour se lève. Bowdlerised and tricked out with a silly happy ending, but a better film than critics allowed at the time with Carné's film under threat of definitive suppression to make way for it. Excellent performances (with Price at his smarmiest, and Fonda only a shade self-pitying where Jean Gabin gave the role sheer, mutinous power), but above all a wonderful noir sheen from Sol Polito's camerawork.
