Description

Road House is a 1948 film noir drama directed by Jean Negulesco, with cinematography by Joseph LaShelle. The picture features Ida Lupino, Cornel Wilde, Celeste Holm, Richard Widmark, among others. The drama tells the story of Lily Stevens who takes a job as a singer at a roadhouse—complete with bowling alley. When Lily dumps the owner Jefty for his boyhood friend Pete Morgan, problems begin. They only get worse when Jefty is rejected after proposing to Lily, causing Jefty to go on a murderous rage. Lupino sings the classic Johnny Mercer song "One for My Baby" in the film. The song "Again", written by Dorcas Cochran and Lionel Newman, debuted in this film, and was also sung by her.
