Le désordre et la nuit (French for "The disorder and the night") is a 1958 French crime film directed by Gilles Grangier and starring Jean Gabin and Danielle Darrieux. The screenplay is based on the novel Le désordre et la nuit by Jacques Robert. The film was released in the United States as Night Affair.


Georges Vallois (Gabin), a vice inspector for the Paris police, takes special interest in the plight of drug-addicted Lucky (Tiller), whom he considers to be more victim than criminal. Taking it upon himself to wean Lucky away from narcotics, Vallois also wins her love—and, incidentally, smashes the dope ring responsible for her addiction.
