The Night Belongs to Us
The Night Belongs to Us (German: Die Nacht gehört uns), released in English as The Night Is Ours or The Night Belongs to Us, is a 1929 German sports romance film directed by Carl Froelich and Henry Roussel, and starring Hans Albers, Charlotte Ander, and Otto Wallburg.
The film was based on a 1925 play by Henry Kistemaeckers. Art direction was by Franz Schroedter. It was shot at the Tempehof Studios. The film's exterior scenes were shot on location in Sicily and the AVUS racetrack in Berlin, and was one of the first German part-sound films to be released during the transition from silent to sound. A separate French language version The Night Is Ours was also released, directed by Roger Lion.
