The Long Night (1947) is a film noir directed by Anatole Litvak and produced by RKO. It is a remake of Le Jour se lève (1939) by Marcel Carné. The drama features Henry Fonda, Barbara Bel Geddes, Vincent Price, and others.


Henry Fonda stars as Joe Adams, a grizzled ex-G.I. who has a hard time adapting to society after the war. Barbara Bel Geddes makes her motion picture debut as teenage orphan Jo Ann, who is Joe’s girlfriend. Vincent Price is a lounge magician Maximilian, who makes life difficult for Joe and his girlfriend. Elisha Cook Jr. plays Joe’s blind neighbor.
