In a Lonely Place

Drama, Romance 1h 34m 1950

AroView: Hot-headed Hollywood writer Humphrey Bogart is suspected of murder by his new girlfriend and old army pal detective. Gutsy psycho-drama set on the dark side of Tinseltown, brandishes the director’s trademark cynicism and a great Bogie performance.

Synopsis: Humphrey Bogart stars as Dixon Steele, a down-on-his-luck studio scribe who reluctantly agrees to adapt a trashy bestseller to the silver screen. Rather than read the book himself, Steele convinces a star-struck hatcheck girl, Mildred Atkinson, to accompany him home and tell him the story in her own words. Later that night, Mildred is found murdered and Steele, who has a history of violent behavior, becomes the prime suspect. Fortunately for him, his sexy neighbor, Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), who is physically attracted to the writer, lies to the police by providing Steele with an air-tight alibi. But is he truly innocent of Mildred’s death or is Laurel destined to become the next victim of Steele’s violent temper?
