Scotland Yard is seriously concerned over the exploits of the notorious ‘Flash Jack’, a criminal gang-leader who preys on the wealthy. At large in London, his criminal activities show no signs of stopping, and so Det. Sgt. Cross is assigned to the case…
A rare British thriller from the dawn of the ‘talkies’, Night Birds stars transatlantic actor Jack Raine as intrepid Det Sgt Harry Cross. One of several films made in bilingual form by BIP with a partly German crew during this period, this exceptionally rare film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
The British Film
The British Film collection was launched by Network Distributing in April 2013 as part of a five-year plan to release over 450 vintage British films through a deal with Studiocanal, one of Europe’s leading distribution and production companies. Many of the films have never been available to own and will benefit from new transfers, affirming Network Distributing’s commitment to classic British cinema.
Titles include significant works from studios including Associated Talking Pictures, Ealing Studios, London Films, British Lion, Associated British Picture Corporation and EMI from the Studiocanal archive.
