Nicholas Ray directed Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame in this classic film noir adapted from Dorothy Hughes’ harrowing novel.
Silver, Ward, Ursini, Porfirio, p. 149-150: “IN A LONELY PLACE is strange, sad, and hauntingly romantic. A peculiar kind of film noir, it combines a harsh murder mystery in a somewhat sleazy milieu with a colorful semi hard-boiled cast of characters. Like almost all of Nicholas Ray’s films, IN A LONELY PLACE concerns alienation, effort, failure, and loss.”
Grant, p. 316: “This powerful movie lacks any happy ending — both principals are destined for lonely places — and offers one of Grahame’s most successful performances.”
