Detour ★★ 1992 (R)

Remake of the 1945 noir classic even features Neal Jr. in the role that his dad made famous. He's the nightclub musician, hitching his way to Hollywood, who falls into big trouble thanks to fatale dame, Vera (Lavish). Not a patch on the original but not a complete waste of time either. 91m/B VHS . Tom Neal Jr., Lea Lavish, Susanna Foster, Erin McGrane; D: Wade Williams; W: Wade Williams; M: Bill Crain. VIDEO
