In concert with Film Quotes Film and Riverdale 10 Cinema, Arkansas Times Film Series presents Nicholas Ray's 1950 film noir starring Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame, "In a Lonely Place." 

Based on Dorothy B. Hughes' 1947 novel of the same name and scored by avant garde composer George Antheil, "In a Lonely Place" explores the psyche of a washed-up Hollywood writer, Dixon Steele, and the ways in which his life unravels after he becomes a suspect in a murder. 

For a more in-depth look at the themes of hypermasculinity, American identity, and the psychology of the societal "outsider" that characterize the films of Nicholas Ray ("Johnny Guitar," "We Live by Night," "Bigger than Life" and "Rebel Without a Cause"), check out the accompanying podcast from Film Quote Films here, with Omaya Jones, Michael Carpenter, Elizabeth Strandberg, and David Thiedig.

Tonight's screening begins at 7 p.m., and tickets can be purchased in advance at Riverdale 10's website.
