Genre stalwarts Edmund O’Brien (711 Ocean Drive), Mark Stevens (The Snake Pit), and Gale Storm (The Underworld Story) join forces in Between Midnight and Dawn, an influential film noir tale of police on the beat.

Childhood friends Rocky and Dan grew up to be Los Angeles patrolmen, cleaning up the streets of the city as they flirt with radio operator Kate. The pair then become engaged in a battle of wills with ruthless racketeer Garris, who escapes their clutches and swears violent revenge...

Helmed by Gordon Douglas (I Was a Communist for the FBI), Between Midnight and Dawn is exciting hybrid of stylised film noir and realistic police procedural.
