Un Soir de Rafle (Dragnet Night) details the rise and fall of headstrong prizefighter Georget (Albert Prejean). Upon winning the championship title, Georget forgets himself and spends a bacchanalian evening with a sexy adventuress. He squanders all his money and time on this new conquest, utterly forgetting his childhood sweetheart. Inevitably, he washes out in the boxing ring, a by-product not only of his new hedonistic lifestyle but also of his decision to dump his faithful manager in favor of a crooked one. Only when he gets the stuffings knocked out of him does Georget come to his senses and return to the people in his life who truly matter. Carmine Gallone directed from a screenplay by Henri Decoin.
