The 1954 noir, HIGHWAY DRAGNET stars Richard Conte, Joan Bennett, Wanda Hendrix and Reed Hadley.

It definitely has that early 50s feel to it.  

Trivia Department:  First film to carry Roger Corman's name in the credits.  And he was one of six screenwriters contributing to the script.

Ex-Marine Conte hitches a ride from glamour-magazine photographer Joan Bennett, who is travelling cross-country with her principal model, Wanda Hendrix. He's been charged with a murder and is getting out of town ASAP.

Keaney gives it a 1.5 and the IMDb rating is 6.3.  It's an enjoyable, but nothing special, little noir.

I viewed a copy recorded off Mystery Channel, but I think it's available commercially.  Whether it's been restored however, is another matter.  But there's also a copy on YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS7anDYajIE
