Night Watch is a 1928 American drama film directed by Alexander Korda and starring Billie Dove, Paul Lukas and Donald Reed. It was an adaptation of the dramatic play In the Night Watch, written by Michael Morton. The film is set almost entirely on a French warship at the beginning of the First World War.[1] Although largely a silent film Night Watch was the first of Korda's films to feature sound effects and music but no dialogue from Vitaphone.[1][2]

A print is preserved at Cineteca Italiana, Milan.[3]
