Dixon Steele (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical, hot-tempered Hollywood writer, becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murder of a young woman. His life takes a turn when he falls in love with his alibi — Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), a sexy but vulnerable neighbor in his apartment court. Their romance reignites his artistic fuse … but as any writer knows — there are two sides to every story. Once considered a minor work on the résumés of Bogart and director Nicholas Ray, IN A LONELY PLACE is recognized now as a masterpiece, one of the most emotionally mature films ever made about the frailty of relationships and the pitfalls of artistic temperament.
