George Stroud (Ray Milland), editor of Crimeways, America's most popular true-crime magazine, finds himself the prime suspect in the murder of his publisher's mistress with whom he's just shared a day-drinking dalliance. Earl Janoth, the tyrannical Murdoch-like publisher, is played with sinister relish by Charles Laughton, whose real-life wife, Elsa Lanchester, provides comic support as a kooky Greenwich Village artist. George Macready, Rita Johnson, and Harry Morgan are also featured in one of the most suspenseful noir films of all time.

Road House (9:00)
Originally released November 4, 1948
20th Century-Fox [Disney]. 95 minutes
Screenplay by Edward Chodorov, from a story by Margaret Gruen and Oscar Saul
Produced by Edward Chodorov
Directed by Jean Negulesco
A star-powered face-off between two film noir icons: sassy Ida Lupino and psychotic Richard Widmark. Sparks fly when itinerant songbird Lily Stevens (Lupino) takes a job crooning in Widmark's rural roadhouse. When she rejects the owner (Widmark) and takes up with his boyhood chum (Cornel Wilde), the joint really starts jumping. The studio-made roadhouse is a marvel of production design, the perfect spot for Ida to sing inimitable renditions of the classic ballads "One for My Baby" and "Again." Co-starring Celeste Holm.


All FNF proceeds from festival ticket sales aid the foundation's mission of rescuing and restoring noir films.
