This Humphrey Bogart film noir tells the story of Dixon Steele, a screenwriter accused of murder, and his neighbor, Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), the woman who can’t keep herself from falling in love with him. A scathing comment on Hollywood and its insular culture, In a Lonely Place is hailed as being among Bogart’s best work, and is considered one of Time magazine’s best 100 films. Indeed, its prestige has only grown over time, and its themes around the nature of and obsession with celebrity remain relevant to this day. Nicholas Ray (Rebel Without a Cause) directed.
