Road House Regie Jean Negulesco


Nothing in “Road House” matches its sensational opening scenes. Still, Ms. Lupino lends her husky delivery to several other numbers, and, once his character has been spurned for his hunky best friend (stolid Cornel Wilde), Mr. Widmark ignites the screen with gleeful, almost pyromaniacal malevolence.

Friendly competition for this mysterious stranger’s favour turns to swimming-hole frolics, nightclub brawls, false accusations and titillating bowling lessons, the whole kit and caboodle given a hard-edged sheen by DP Joseph LaShelle, whose particular skill set suited him very well indeed to film noir—a style with which Jean Negulesco isn’t particularly associated, though he more than acquits himself. Almost obscenely enjoyable, and a nice Exhibit A in any argument for The Genius of the System.

Directed in uniformly efficient fashion by Jean Negulesco (a Jack-of-all-genres Romanian émigré), the plot sets up the standard romantic-triangle offense.
