The latest film restoration project from the Film Chest was announced this past week and it is none other than director Edgar G. Ulmer’s perfectly-pitched 1945 film noir masterpiece, Detour. It will be available for collectors to savor on July 22.
Although a “poverty row” production, Detour magically rose above its humble roots over the years to be revered as one of the great film noirs … with Ann Savage gaining cult status as the predatory Vera. Tom Neal, well, his star burned brightly during this period until the famous altercation with Franchot Tone over their mutual love affairs with actress Barbara Payton.
