Granite Noir: Crimewatch – Film Noir Screenings

In A Lonely Place (1950)

Curated by Dr Jacky Collins aka ‘Dr Noir’

  • Belmont Film House



With this existential endgame of a movie, Nicholas Ray provides a suspenseful tale of the darkness found in post-war Hollywood. Film icon Humphrey Bogart plays a quick-tempered script writer suspected of murder, who is provided with an alibi, and perhaps more than he bargained for, by his lovely neighbour Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame). I chose this film for its bleak ending and the outstanding performances by the leading actors.

Dr Noir is a keen enthusiast of both crime fiction and crime dramas. With some of the most iconic examples in the Film Noir genre being produced in Hollywood in the 1940s and 1950s, I’ve chosen three fabulous examples to accompany Granite Noir’s 2022 programme. They might not be the first titles that spring to mind when we think of film noir, but this selection offers us an opportunity to savor fabulous performances, excellent script writing and mesmerizing camera work, all with the irresistible dark touch of noir.
