Detour (1945)

Free Great Movies Review

  •  (3 out of 5 stars)

A quick classic film noir with a lot of noir cliches including voiceover, corny dialogue, and some ridiculous plot twists of fate. Al Roberts (Tom Neal) is hitchhiking across the U.S. to follow his girlfriend to Hollywood and he encounters some unsavory characters along the way including a nasty femme fatale named Vera (Ann Savage). There are many better film noirs in terms of direction, writing, and acting, but this early low budget film noir is still entertaining and just 68 minutes long!
