Topic: In A Lonely Place
We’re doing more film noir this week, with another of the greats of the genre: Humphrey Bogart.
I more or less stumbled on “In A Lonely Place” by accident. I was in the midst of a weekend-long Bogart marathon (a reasonable life choice that I strongly recommend), wandering around his IMDb credits, and this one’s description intrigued me. Boy was I right.
Bogart plays a screenwriter who hasn’t had a hit in years and ends up accused of murder. But did he do it? Unclear. It’s a dark role, and he shines. You’ll have to listen to find out if Eric liked it as much as I do.
