Tale of suspense wraps up Widmark film series

PRINCETON — The final Widmark Wednesday film of the current series stars former Princeton resident Richard Widmark in a 1948 film noir drama. The movie begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Princeton Public Library. Admission is free.

Widmark plays the owner of a northwoods road house who recruits an attractive Chicago singer as the featured entertainment, with hopes of marrying her.

Widmark, who graduated from Princeton High School in 1932, acted in more than 70 movies from 1947 until 1991.

The Princeton library also has about 40 Widmark movies on DVD that the public can check out and view.
