"One of The Best Road Movies to Emerge From A Major Studio in The 1940s." - The Movie Guide

George Raft and Humphrey Bogart share a driving ambition in They Drive by Night, a feisty tale of brothers trying to make a go of their independent trucking enterprise. Ann Sheridan plays a truck-stop waitress dishing out both the daily special and the patter. And Ida Lupino is the headstrong executive who mixes business and romance with murder.

With Bogart again riding shotgun en route to leading-man stardom (which he would achieve the following year) and Raft at the wheel in one of his best roles, this fine example of Warner Bros. social-conscience filmmaking (directed by Raoul Walsh) proved a sturdy vehicle for both. The movie proved even more fortuitous for Lupino: Her courtroom breakdown made her an "overnight" sensation that landed her a studio contract.
