    Description

    Detour (PRC, 1945). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). If pianist Al Roberts (Tom Neal) didn't have bad luck, he wouldn't have any luck at all. While hitchhiking, he's picked up by friendly Charles Haskell Jr. (Edmund MacDonald), who promptly has a heart attack and dies. Afraid he'll be arrested for murder if he goes to the authorities, Roberts disposes of the body, and takes the dead man's clothes and wallet, assuming his identity, driving off in Haskell's car. His cover is blown, however, when he picks up a beautiful hitchhiker (Ann Savage) who knew the dead man and threatens to expose Roberts unless he goes along with her dangerous plan. This gorgeous title card is about as clean as they come, with only some very minor corner bumps keeping this beauty from an even higher grade. Near Mint.
