Movie Info

Eddie Shannon (Mickey Rooney) is a guileless Los Angeles auto mechanic with dreams of one day racing in European car meets. Eddie encounters fetching Barbara Mathews (Dianne Foster) and, much to his surprise and delight, she agrees to date him. But Barbara's true intentions are revealed when she introduces Eddie to her associates -- Steve Norris (Kevin McCarthy) and Harold Baker (Jack Kelly) -- who, as it turns out, need a getaway driver for a planned bank heist.

Critic Reviews for Drive a Crooked Road

All Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • Mickey Rooney-completely rid, for once, of his Andy Hardy mannerisms-is an honest mechanic who falls in with bank robbers and a dame. Surprisingly good, and recommended.

  • Rooney is certainly understated and extremely effective. Richard Quine keeps everything in nice balance and by its downer of an ending, Drive a Crooked Road turns out to be quietly affecting.

    February 23, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • ... what I like to call beachhouse noir, a world away from the classic nocturnal urban style with its coast highways and sunny beaches and sleek West Coast architecture.

    February 19, 2012 | Full Review…
  • It's the simpleness of this tale and lack of any pretensions that makes it convincing but not necessarily sparkling.
