So Ends Our Night is a 1941 drama war film starring Fredric March and directed by John Cromwell. The screenplay was adapted from the novel Flotsam by Erich Maria Remarque.


The story takes place in Germany, Austria, and France during the period that the Third Reich was persecuting Jews and opponents of the regime. Three of the people Josef Steiner (Fredric March), Ruth Holland (Margaret Sullavan) and Ludwig Kern (Glenn Ford) are refugees without passports who are people with no place to go. Each country that finds them has them sent somewhere else because they are people without any rights of residence.
