Ride Tonight! (Swedish: Rid i natt) is a 1942 Swedish historical drama film directed by Gustaf Molander and starring Lars Hanson, Oscar Ljung, Gerd Hagman and Eva Dahlbeck. It is an adaptation of the 1941 novel Ride This Night by Vilhelm Moberg. The film, like the original novel, alluded directly to events in occupied Europe during the Second World War and helped to bolster anti-Nazi sentiment in neutral Sweden.
In 17th century Southern Sweden, a peasant uprising takes place against German landowners.
