Road House posterKennington Noir presents Road House (1948), directed by Jean Negulesco, and starring Ida Lupino, Cornel Wilde, Celeste Holm and Richard Widmark.

Jefty (Richard Widmark), the owner of a road house bar in a backwoods town hires sultry, tough-talking torch singer Lily Stevens (Ida Lupino) against the advice of his manager Pete Morgan (Cornel Wilde). Jefty is smitten with Lily, who in turn exerts her charms on the more resistant Pete. When Pete finally falls for her and she turns down Jefty’s marriage proposal, the two of them must face Jefty’s murderous jealousy and his twisted plots to “punish” them.
