‘In a Lonely Place’ Movie Summary

In a Lonely Place begins with Hollywood screenwriter, Dixon Steele, who hasn’t written a hit movie since before the war. His agent gets him a job turning a potboiler into a screenplay, but Dix thinks the story is crap. Unfortunately, he soon finds himself as a person of interest in the murder of restaurant hat check girl, Mildred Atkinson, who was last seen leaving his apartment late at night. Dix had invited her over so she could tell him about the book, which she just finished reading. While Dix is known for his anger management issues, his neighbor, Laurel Gray, gives him a reliable alibi. Soon the two fall in love, and he hires Laurel as his muse since she’s inspired him to write again. However, Dix’s frequent bursts of rage along with the police’s incessant investigation on him causes Laurel to have her doubts over Dix’s innocence.

  1. Gloria Grahame was a bit of a noir icon(the Big Heat). Annette Bening played her in a 2017 film called Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool. Worth a look.
