In a Lonely Place

USA 1950. Dir: Nicholas Ray. 94 min. DCP

NEW RESTORATION! Directed by Hollywood maverick and auteurist favourite Nick Ray (Johnny Guitar, Rebel Without a Cause), In a Lonely Place features Humphrey Bogart in perhaps his finest performance. Bogie is Dixon Steele, a Hollywood screenwriter blacklisted for boozing and bad attitude. When the hatcheck girl he takes home turns up murdered, Steele’s the prime suspect — but next-door neighbour Laurel (Gloria Grahame) exonerates him. As romance blossoms between Laurel and Steele, she slowly begins to suspect that this jealous, suspicious, often-violent man may be a killer after all. Ray’s film is a masterfully directed, darkly haunting portrait of disaffection and distrust. “The noir atmosphere of deadly paranoia frames one of the screen’s most adult and touching love affairs ... Never were despair and solitude so romantically alluring” (Geoff Andrew, Time Out).
