Following the Second World War, two comrades go their separate ways one joining the Metropolitan Police while the other becomes a racketeer in post-war London.

  • Critical reception

    The Radio Times wrote, "a relishably bad British crime drama set in an unreal Soho underworld of spivs and nightclubs. It's a compendium of clichés...Benjamin Frankel's score is better than the film deserves." Allmovie wrote, "though its starts out strong, Night Beat metamorphoses into standard melodramatics towards the end." Britmovie wrote, "fast-paced British crime melodrama...The two lead actors are particularly wooden and it’s left to the supporting cast to add some lowlife colour; particularly Maxwell Reed’s smug villain, Christine Norden as the vampish blonde, Sid James piano playing snout and a brief appearance by Michael Medwin as an indignant petty crook."
