Hollywood legend HUMPHREY BOGART is at his hard-boiled best in this stylish thriller directed by JOHN CROMWELL. As Rip Murdock, Bogart is an ex-GI trying to clear the name of a murdered friend, when an investigation leads him into a maelstrom of intrigue and treachery... and into the presence of Coral Chandler, a femme who may prove to be fatal.
No stranger to the genre, Bogart is in top form here, as is the seductive LIZABETH SCOTT, who matches her leading man measure for measure. Full of atmosphere and crisp dialogue, DEAD RECKONING is a great showcase for this fabulous screen couple and a classic example of 40's film noir.
In A Lonely Place
Hollywood legend HUMPHREY BOGART stars as burnt-out writer Dixon Steele, who becomes the prime suspect of a brutal murder in this taut mystery/thriller that's brilliantly directed by NICHOLAS RAY (REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE).
Beautiful GLORIA GRAHAME - playing the woman who loves Steele but is not entirely convinced of his innocence - also stars and it's her chemistry with Bogart that provides the highlight of this suspenseful and thought-provoking character study. Deeply moving, brutally honest and perfectly executed, IN A LONELY PLACE is widely considered to be one of the best examples of the film noir genre.
The Harder They Fall
Hollywood legend HUMPHREY BOGART's final film role was in this gripping 1956 drama directed by MARK ROBSON. This tough tale, written by BUDD SCHULBERG, pulls no punches in its story of corruption in the world of professional boxing.
Bogart, as a cynical sportswriter, gives one of his most memorable performances and he's supported by a terrific ensemble cast that includes ROD STEIGER (compelling as shady manager Nick Benko) and real-life fighter MAX BAER. With some of the most brutal and striking fight footage ever committed to film, THE HARDER THEY FALL is high-class drama and a first-rate cinematic experience.
