Description: In a Lonely Place (1950) is a film noir directed by Nicholas Ray, and starring Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame, produced for Bogart's Santana Productions.

"The grayest, most morally ambiguous of film noirs —and arguably the most self-reflexive. Released in 1950, two and a half years after the House Un-American Activities Committee put Hollywood on the stand, and a few months ahead of Sunset Boulevard, In a Lonely Place similarly represents the movie industry as a crime scene." —J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
