Screenwriter Dixon Steele, faced with the odious task of scripting a trashy bestseller, has hat-check girl Mildred Atkinson tell him the story in her own words. Later that night, Mildred is murdered and Steele is a prime suspect; his record of belligerence when angry and his macabre sense of humor tell against him. Fortunately, lovely neighbor Laurel Gray gives him an alibi. Laurel proves to be just what Steele needed, and their friendship ripens into love. Will suspicion, doubt, and Steele's inner demons come between them?

"First viewing - Nov. 21st Bogart and Grahame shine in this twisty film that keeps you guessing through the end. Both characters are so well fleshed out, and watching them navigate through everything thrown at them makes for an entertaining flick. It's also got a great streak of humor running through everything that I deeply appreciated. I got really caught up in it and was pleased with the way it ended. I'd gladly watch this one again."

" Laura Gray played by Gloria Grahame "The used, smart L.A. beauty who inspires her self-destructive screenwriter/lover to pen the lines "I was born when you kissed me. I died when you let me. I lived a few weeks while you loved me." This must be how the joke about the Polish actress who slept with the screenwriter got started"."

Slantโ€™s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"Throughout In a Lonely Place, Nicholas Ray complements Humphrey Bogartโ€™s performance with an atmosphere of closed-off stagnation that would prove greatly influential to such self-conscious, meta-textual noirs as The Long Goodbye, L.A. Confidential, and Mulholland Drive. Ray exhibits a matter-of-fact mastery of tone that would become a trademark in his work. In a Lonely Place is a tricky thriller thatโ€™s understated in its exploration of the theme of dream versus reality that governs most Holl"

"One of the bleakest, most psychologically intricate film noirs of the 50s, Nicholas Ray's 'In a Lonely Place' features one of the most indelibly haunting performances Humphrey Bogart ever gave. Bogart reportedly adored the script, a fact that many have attributed to the actor's identification with the anti-hero Dix Steele, a proud but unmotivated screenwriter with an explosive temper. To what extent Dix resembles the real Bogart is debatable but the two certainly merge in the actor's complete in"
