"This crackerjack melodrama about two buddies who vie for a dangerous dame is novel for its setting..." -- Grade: B+
In this 1948 noir thriller starring Ida Lupino (THE MOONTIDE), a psychotic road house owner named Jefty (Richard Widmark) becomes murderously jealous when his mildly talented yet engagingly blunt lounge singer falls in love with his secret enemy (Cornel Wilde). The visually stark and hard-edged ROAD HOUSE is a squalidly rousing B-movie classic that essentially marks the beginning of humble moviemaking powerhouse Lupino--who would go on to become a multitasking writer, director, and producer and gain a game-changing autonomous power over her own career.
