1950 · d. Nicholas Ray
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Gloria Grahame, Frank Lovejoy
Screenwriter Dixon Steel (Humphrey Bogart) used to be a hotshot. Now he’s burned out, drinks too much, and flies off the handle at the drop of a hat. When a young woman turns up dead after leaving his apartment, Dixon is suspect number one—until his new neighbor, Laurel (Gloria Grahame) gives him an alibi. But his strange behavior soon leads Laurel to wonder—is he really an innocent man? Nicholas Ray’s haunting Hollywood noir features Bogart in one of his richest—and darkest—performances.
