In a Lonely Place

The place is Hollywood, lonely for scriptwriter Dixon Steele, (Humphrey Bogart) who is suspected of murdering a young woman until girl –next-door (Gloria Grahame) supplies him with a false alibi. The noir atmosphere of deathly paranoia frames one of the screen’s most adult and touching love affairs. As ever Ray composes with symbolic precision, confounds audience expectations and deploys the heightened lyricism of melodrama to produce a meditation on pain, distrust and loss of faith. Never were despair and solitude so romantically alluring. Time Out.
