A great classic film noir.

I actually took this movie out because of backround artwork that I saw in a bookstore that referenced this movie. Fianced by Humphrey Bogart This I think was his attempt to breakaway from the types of roles that he was playing and in my opinion he was partically successful. Perhaps if his wife Lauren Bacall was playing opposite him we would have gotten a different type of performance. He was attempting to play a screenwriter with boarderline personality. Is he or is he not a Murderer ? I sort of belived it but I NEEDED to Believe it so I give it a O-K rating. Not a bad movie. A film Noirish type of treatment.

This is a 1950 film noir directed by Nicholas Ray.
Dixon "Dix" Steele is a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who has not had a hit since before the war.
Although Dix has an explosive temper, he is not the type of guy to kill a hat-check girl like Mildred in the first place.
Nobody suspects Dix, who is played by Humphrey Bogart, I suppose.
Besides, Dix has no motives to kill her.
So I guessed that her boyfriend was the culprit.
The detective denied it at first, but the boyfriend confessed in the end.
So, in a sense, Laurel was forced to distrust Dix, manipulated by an unreasonable and contrived storyline.
It is too bad and too late for both lovers to salvage their relationship.

Powerful performance by Bogie. I can't help wondering if he's channeling some of his real life persona here, the side the public doesn't see. So, not your typical Bogart. The black and white lighting is excellent........especially the illumination on Bogart's face when he describes a murder re-enactment. Underrated Gloria Grahame as his love interest and solid direction by Nicholas Ray. Strange musical score accompanies some scenes.

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. No falling asleep on this DVD!!!!!

A murder is committed early in the story, but 99%
of the story is dedicated to two people that were not involved in/with the deed. A disappointing offering.
Don't bother watching the stupidity. Grade D-.

Another goodie from Bogie! He plays a down on his luck writer who falls in love with a woman who does not quite trust him. His lover is skeptical since Bogart's character has a bad tmper which sometimes gets him to hit people, even his friends. A sad movie but a good one.
