Roadhouse (1948)

Soft-boiled noir-lite. Not that there is anything wrong with that but expectations are not filled. Richard Widmark's character is especially wanting in the motivation department. His progression from patronizing jerk to murderous psychopath is rapid and happens pretty much off-screen. The fight scenes are really good. Good photography. Snappy performances from all.
