Framed within a realistically intimate roadhouse setting, yarn reconstructs the triangle with an arrestingly psychotic twist supplied by Richard Widmark.

Mad, perhaps, but memorable too.

A minor classic of forties film noir with major pleasures, Road House is an unusual, and unusually fascinating, variation on the genre.

List first the fact that Widmark, though he stands in danger of being typed as the screen's prime psychotic, does an excellent job (complete with chilling laughter).

This lurid 1948 melodrama by Jean Negulesco has built up a considerable underground reputation.

Widmark does his wicked best as the obsessed would-be lover, and waiting in the wings is the great Holm to gently out-act them all.
