Ray’s extraordinarily vivid and bitterly romantic Hollywood “valentine” features Humphrey Bogart as a cynical, dangerously violent and failed screenwriter, wrongfully accused of murder, who escapes to the brief idyll of a relationship with neighbour Grahame (who was separating from Ray at the time). Exquisitely shot by Burnett Guffey and based on Dorothy B. Hughes’ brilliantly disturbing novel, this is one Ray’s defining works, a brutally honest and painfully tender portrait of vulnerable, damaged lives and the illusory dreams of old Hollywood. A key film of the 1960s Bogart cult and for many Grahame’s greatest, most soulful performance.
