Somewhere in the Night is a psychological thriller, co-written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and released in 1946. It was Mankiewicz's first film for 20th Century Fox, and his third film overall.
The film tells the tale of a man called George Taylor (John Hodiak), who returns home to the US from fighting in World War II. He is suffering from amnesia, and tries to track down his old identity, following a trail left behind by the mysterious Mr Larry Cravat. He ends up stumbling into a murder mystery involving Nazi loot. The complicated storyline is typical of film noir.
Twentieth Century-Fox purchased Marvin Borowsky's original, unpublished story "The Lonely Journey" and his accompanying screenplay in December 1944 for $11,000. Somewhere in the Night was Nancy Guild's first film.
Production Dates: 21 Nov 1945–24 Jan 1946. A radio version of the film, starring John Hodiak and Lynn Bari, was broadcast on Lux Radio Theatre on March 3, 1947.
