Dixon Steele (Humphrey Bogart), a cynical, violent-tempered Hollywood screenwriter headed toward has-been status, becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murder of a young woman. His personal and professional lives take a dramatic turn when he falls in love with his alibi -- Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), a sexy but vulnerable new neighbor in his apartment court. One of the most emotionally authentic and mature films ever made about the frailty of human relationships and the glory and agony of the artistic temperament.
THE TWO MRS. CARROLLS
(1947, Warner Bros. 99 min.)
Scr. Thomas Job, from the stage play by Martin Vale
Dir. Peter Godfrey
Geoffrey Carroll (Humphrey Bogart), an expatriate American painter living in England, falls in love with Sally Morton (Barbara Stanwyck) while traveling in Scotland. After a whirlwind courtship, the couple settles in a quaint English village, where Sally learns that Geoff's first wife fell ill and died shortly after he had painted her portrait. When her husband becomes distant and morose, she dismisses it as fatigue from his latest project ... which he keeps behind a locked door in his attic studio. Is his medium of choice ... murder?
