Original 20th Century-Fox One Sheet Poster (27x41). Linen-Backed. Good Condition.

Original 20th Century-Fox One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Jean Negulesco film noir thriller, ROAD HOUSE (1948) starring Ida Lupino, Cornel Wilde, and Richard Widmark. Roadhouse owner, Jefty Robbins (Widmark), hires sultry, tough-talking torch singer Lily (Lupino) against the advise of his manager Pete Morgan (Wilde). When Robbins falls for Lily, she turns her attentions to the Pete who is playing hard to get. This is certainly one of Lupino's best performances, and her rendition of the song "One for My Baby" is a wonderful combination of alcohol and cigarettes. Widmark is at his best when he is playing a "psycho villain" role, and Jefty's murderous jealously produces a twisted plot to "punish" the two lovers. The direction, screenplay, and cinematography are all excellent in this film. This original one sheet poster is linen-backed and in good condition with some restoration touch-up and repair of missing chips. Minor water stain in upper border area.
