RARA-AVIS: Ida Lupino? Yeah!!!!

I have been reading the suggestions with interest but man, Ida Lupino would have been fantastic. Tough but human, irresistible but very dangerous. And if you like your fantasies realistic, she was also under contract with Warner Brothers at the time.

Great in noir work work too. What was the name of the film from the late 40s where she played a nightclub torch singer? Possibly "Road House" was the title. There was a scene where she slapped the bejesus out of this guy and told him off, briefly but searingly. Boy, she had a great slap!
