In a Lonely Place

( 3 )

Overview

Columbia-TriStar's DVD of Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place, starring Humphrey Bogart, is a double treat -- the movie looks, for want of a more appropriate word concerning so dark and troubling a film as this, gorgeous. The image is clean and sharp, the image detail and depth is downright enticing, and the clarity is an absolute wonder, without a blemish to be seen or heard; even the pitch on the audio has been adjusted for minuscule variations caused by edits. It's all a far cry from the dark and worn, ...

Overview

Columbia-TriStar's DVD of Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place, starring Humphrey Bogart, is a double treat -- the movie looks, for want of a more appropriate word concerning so dark and troubling a film as this, gorgeous. The image is clean and sharp, the image detail and depth is downright enticing, and the clarity is an absolute wonder, without a blemish to be seen or heard; even the pitch on the audio has been adjusted for minuscule variations caused by edits. It's all a far cry from the dark and worn, less-than-perfect prints that were seen in the film's relatively rare TV showings, which should also be a source of serious embarrassment to Warner Home Video -- none of its three Bogart DVD titles in release (as of spring 2003), including Casablanca, was remotely as well produced or as loaded up with extras as In a Lonely Place. That, in itself, should attract people to this title, which was one of Bogart's most challenging films, a difficult dramatic piece in which the star looks troubled and, at times, downright ugly. Included on the disc is a 20-minute featurette devoted to the film and its origins; it is one of the best analytical studies of its kind, and worth the price of the DVD alone. Someone at Columbia obviously respects this movie, and director and fan Curtis Hanson does a superb job of walking us through the film. The accompanying account of the movie's restoration by studio executive Grover Crisp also reveals the level of work needed to get the movie to look and sound up to 21st century standards. The film, itself, is divided into 28 chapters and the menu is triple-layered, although very easy to navigate. In addition to a French audio track and English captions, subtitles in Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, and Japanese are offered. Finally, the same five-minute Bogart Collection montage that appears on The Harder They Fall is also included here.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Produced by Humphrey Bogart's Santana Productions, Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place (1950) uses a murder mystery to delve into the questionable side of Hollywood violence and the potentially dangerous turmoil beneath Bogart's tough surface. Bogart's troubling performance as a man who seems to enjoy imagining murders of women a bit too much lends an eerie edge to his relationship with Gloria Grahame's starlet Laurel Gray, rendering Dix an all-too-believable suspect in another woman's murder. Even as Andrew Solt's screenplay suggests possible reasons for Dix's isolation and distress, it eschews pat conclusions about Dix's "artistic temperament" as a screenwriter. Ray's jittery, ominous, film noir style instead suggests that Dix's potential violence comes from within, with Hollywood as both an outlet and an excuse for lethal male fantasies. Whether seen as a reflection of Ray's then-disintegrating marriage to the put-upon Grahame or as an interrogation of Bogart's cool Philip Marlowe/Sam Spade persona, In a Lonely Place presents one of the darkest portraits of Hollywood in a period haunted by the Communist blacklist and the studios' financial uncertainty.
