The Naked Road (1959) Tail Fin Noir
Directed by William Martin, Writer: William Martin, Stars: Jeanne Rainer as Gay Andrews, Ronald Long as Wayne Jackson, Art Koulias as Mark Gallo and Paul Judson as Bob Walker.
Model Gay Andrews who kind of looks like a Shelly Fabres is a loner in NYC. She gets a come on from married add executive Bob Walker a Steve Cochran look-a-like, after ab gig in New Jersey. He wants to continue their necking session at a hat sheet motel. She turns him down but on their way back to NYC they get pulled over by a cop who hauls them to a corrupt JP who is in cahoots with a local pimp Wayne Jackson played by big man Ronald Long ( Love of Life (1951), The Notorious Landlady (1962) and The List of Adrian Messenger (1963) who both resembles and sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock with hair.
When  Walker leaves to get money so that he can pay his fine in cash, the JP detains Andrews as a hostage until his return. Long is on hand an hour later to rescue Andrews. He pays the $100 fine and the JP tells her she's free. Long offers to give her a ride.  At a cafe Long slips a drug into Gays drink and she wakes up at Longs house. A Classic tale of don't go home with strangers.
Koulias is good as Longs right hand man. The entire story is an instructional on white slavery, but it's poster decries the "Public Relations Racket", the girl is first offered $50,000 for one year of service with the guarantee that she can go free after the year is up, then threatened with getting forced hooked on horse if she wont cooperate voluntarily.
It's all done very on the cheap and is a bit clunky in spots, but the film still manages to entertain mostly by what is suggested during all the descriptive dialog (supplied mostly by Long) rather than what actually happens. 6/10 Two out of two are OK. So far so good in Something Weird's "Six Weird Noirs"
