Overview

Humphrey Bogart plays a Hollywood has-been who gets embroiled in a murder plot in Nicholas Ray’s suspensful 1950 noir, also starring Ray’s then-wife, Gloria Grahame. Dixon Steele (Bogart) is a washed-up screenwriter who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a hat-check girl. His only alibi is his neighbour, Laurel Gray (Grahame), an aspiring actress with a troubled past. A tale of two tormented souls whose love is hampered by their own personal demons, In a Lonely Place is one of the greatest and most affecting noir classics.

Why You Should See This Film

“There is cinema. And the cinema is Nicholas Ray,” famously stated Jean-Luc Godard, one of many high-profile directors including François Truffaut, Wim Wenders and Martin Scorsese who idolised Ray. In a Lonely Place stands as a shining jewel among Ray’s filmography alongside other greats like Rebel Without a Cause, Johnny Guitar and Bigger than Life, with perfect noir plotting, phenomenal turns by Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame, and to-die-for shot compositions amounting to one of the most memorable of all Columbia noirs.
