Screenings: Detour (1945)

October 8th, 2017 · No Comments


One of the wickedest, most deranged, and darkest of all films noir, and easily my favorite of the pure genre entries. Ann Savage is a terrifying harpie as the ultimately doomed femme fatale…hell, everyone in this film is doomed.

The version of this film screened on TCM was tagged at the end as a 2017 restored scan. The print still showed its age, but the sound was vastly improved over the last time I’d seen Detour, on a cheap public domain DVD pressing.
