In A Lonely Place

Although one of Humphrey Bogart’s lesser-known film noir films, this 1950 thriller about a violence- prone struggling Hollywood writer who finds himself immersed in a real-life murder is now considered one of Bogart’s finest performances. Produced by his own company and directed by Nicholas Ray, In a Lonely Place also stars Ray’s wife, actress Gloria Graham, as a B-grade thespian looking for a break— and maybe more. Adapted from Dorothy B. Hughes’ 1947 novel of the same name, In a Lonely Place was released the same year as the more famous Tinseltown takedown Sunset Blvd., and offers yet another look at the gritty underbelly of Los Angeles and the pitfalls of celebrity.
