Description by OLDIES.com:

Academy Award winner Humphrey Bogart (Best Actor, The African Queen, 1951) stars as Dixon Steele, a down-on-his-luck studio scribe who reluctantly agrees to adapt a trashy bestseller to the silver screen. Rather than read the book himself, Steele convinces a star-struck hatcheck girl, Mildred Atkinson, to accompany him home and tell him the story in her owns words. Later that night, Mildred is found murdered, and Steele - who has a history of violent behavior - becomes the prime suspect. Fortunately for him, his sexy neighbor Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame) - who is physically attracted to the writer - lies to the police by providing Steele with an air-tight alibi. But is he truly innocent of Mildred's death or is Laurel destined to become the next victim of Steele's violent temper?

Product Description:

Just when hotheaded Hollywood screenwriter Dixon Steele (Humphrey Bogart) begins a romance with his neighbor Laurel (Gloria Graham), the police begin to suspect him of murdering a woman he only briefly knew. Laurel believes in Dixon's innocence, but his alibi doesn't wash with the police. As the cops continue to pressure Dixon, the lovebirds' relationship begins to crumble--nor does Dixon's increasing hot-tempered behavior help matters. Soon, Laurel begins to suspect that the police may be right after all...Nicholas Ray's classic, brooding film noir showcases an uncharacteristically vulnerable Bogart and delivers a sharp surprise ending that is one of the most tragic in cinema history.
