A reasonably strong entry in the Fox Film Noir Series. This may have been an A movie when made , but is more in the B movie
class when screened in modern times. In glorious Black & White. With Ida Lupino , Queen of B movies. She plays a
night club singer who is hired to sing at The Roadhouse by one of two brother owners. He takes a shine to her when
he mistakes her natural friendliness for something more. He goes away on a fishing trip and in his mind works himself up
to a pending marriage proposal. Meanwhile the other brother , who was antagonistic to Ida at first , takes a shine to her ,
as she does to him. The brothers are Cornel Wilde and Richard Widmark. The pain of rejection and failed purpose re
marriage drives Widmark around the bend. Wilde and Lupino try to sneak away , but are arrested at the train station.
The rat Widmark has reported a theft of the months Roadhouse receipts.When Wilde is convicted of Grand Theft
Widmark makes a plea to the judge to release Wilde under his parole , to work at the Roadhouse for the duration
of his sentence. Ouch , so now you are a virtual slave to the guy that framed you , who is your ?brother?
The climax of this one is rather predictable , but still a decent movie . Ida Lupino sings in this one , but it's of no
note. Excuse previous pun. Recommended for fans of noir or the stars involved.

ROAD HOUSE sets a dark mood with plenty of night scenes. I'm usually turned away from a film having too many night scenes. Half the time you can't tell who's who and what's they doing. Nothing unclear in ROAD HOUSE. Director, Jean Negulesco, deserves a gold star for handling the lighting in those scenes. I give another gold star to Celeste Holm, the girl that you want for a "friend." The plot gets down to the simply fact of the mating season. I was a little concerned that Widmark's evil propensity wasn't foreshadowed during the earlier stages of the film, but it was acceptable to believe that he just flipped his cork. The best part of the movie was perky Ida Lupino's torch song singing effort beginning with "Set 'em up Joe," and "Again." The soundtrack was marvelous.

Jean Negulesco was an also-ran among golden-age directors, but he fired on all cylinders in this late-forties piney-woods noir. Richard Widmark is a giggling psycho who owns, what else, a Road House somewhere near the Canadian Border; Cornel Wilde is his all-American man Friday. Into the mix comes Lupino, a tough "shantoozie" who becomes the apex of a sick triangle. The talk is hard-boiled and freighted with innuendo (in the style of the times). Worth the price of admission is Lupino singing "One more for my baby (and one more for the road)" in her burnt-toast voice, while sitting at a white piano gouged with burns from her smouldering cigarettes. This movie was made for viewing on the late, late show.

To those who enjoy a good yarn, have fun with this. The cast makes it easy to like. Richard Widmark is as solid as ever, and Ida Lupino as well. If there was any weak part I would have to point to the ending, somewhat contrived but that is what makes for good yarns I suppose.
