Classic Art Films will be hosting its next ‘Movie Time’ showing at Gallery 2622 in Wauwatosa, WI on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015.
We continue this month with our focus on film noir — emphasizing its themes, the lighting, shadows and the black-and-white cinematography. Our film in September will be Nicholas Ray’s 1950 In a Lonely Place, starring Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame.
In a Lonely Place stars Academy Award winner Humphrey Bogart 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 hat-check girl to accompany him home and tell him the story in her own 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?
Admission is free to this community event. Doors open at 7pm on Tuesday, September 15th and Showtime is at 7:30pm. We hope you can join us for a great show!
