(1948) Directed by Jean Negulesco. Ida Lupino, Cornel Wilde, Richard Widmark. (95 min.) DCP.
A torch singer flees the urban jungle for a backwoods nightclub (and bowling alley!) but finds that psychopathic gangsters are not confined to the city limits. Ida Lupino shimmers as a tough woman who won’t be pushed around by anybody and sings a smoky rendition of “One for My Baby.” Sandwiched between her studio contract and her career as a director, she bought this story for herself and arranged with Fox to star.
“A minor classic of forties film noir with major pleasures” (TCM.com).
