Jack Mulhall, a silent screen star on the downgrade, delivered one of his last truly memorable screen performances in the 61-minute quickie Night Beat. Mulhall plays Johnny, a gangster who experiences an epiphany while serving in WWI. Returning to New York a changed man, Johnny offers to help his childhood pal Martin (Walter McGail), now a district attorney, break up a gang of crooks. Our hero hadn't counted on falling in love with Martin's fiancee Elinor (Patsy Ruth Miller), but this turn of events only strengthens his resolve to remain a "good guy." Director George B. Seitz later transferred to MGM, where he became the principal helmsman of the Andy Hardy pictures.
