Night Was Our Friend is a 1951 British drama film directed by Michael Anderson and starring Elizabeth Sellars, Michael Gough and Ronald Howard. The title references a line from Virgil's epic poem The Aeneid.


A young woman is acquitted of the murder of her husband, who died in suspicious circumstances. The film then goes into flashback to portray the events leading up to his death. Sally Raynor's aviator husband Martin has been missing for two years and is believed dead, during which time she has fallen in love with a local doctor whom she plans to marry. When Martin unexpectedly returns from Brazil still alive, she decides to give up the doctor and go back to live with Martin. But soon his erratic behaviour, brought on by his ordeals, makes Sally believe he is insane. On one of his wild nighttime walks he appears to have killed someone. His wife plans to kill him to protect him from society's punishment, but before she does he commits suicide. Although innocent of his death, she is haunted by guilt and, even after a jury clears her of murder, she is hesitant to marry the doctor she loves.



The film was made by ACT Films as a B Movie intended to be released on the lower-half of a double bill. Based on a play by Michael Pertwee the film was made at the Viking Studios in Kensington.[1] The film's sets were designed by art director Duncan Sutherland. It was considered above average for a B film, and was shown on the Odeon circuit of cinemas and also given a release in the United States. Anderson went on to be one of the leading British directors of the decade with films such as Around the World in Eighty Days.
