I finished reading the novel on which it is said the movie was based. As far as I can remember what the movie and the novel have in common is the title and the names of the characters. But for the rest they are as different as can be and I wonder why the filmakers wanted to give unearned money to Dorothy Hughes. The novel is one of the best serial killer tales I've read as it soesn't try to explain the actions of the killer and it also show him as a "normal" guy, without moralizing. 8/10

Good. I've seen the film on DVD so many times I'm in no hurry, so I'm willing to wait for a sale. Anything you'd like to tell us about the release, though, I'd be happy to hear (spoilers are OK).

I am not sure what I can tell about bonus features that Beaver hasn't. I can't make screencaps on my BRD player; I saw the movie once such a long time ago that I won't be able to compare the BRD image quality to the DVD quality from memory. I do remember that it is a terrific movie  ;)

Next time we meet, you can lend me your copy of THE CHASE and I can lend you my copy of IN A LONELY PLACE  ;)

Well, I'll lend you my copy of The Chase, anyway. I can wait until July to get my own copy of IALP on B&N's Criterion sale.

I absolutely adore this film. I've seen it at least 50 times. It's so well acted: probably one of Bogart's best performances.

Great storyline with an appropriate haunting soundtrack.

A big thanks to Nicholas Ray for directing this gem!

Generally I watch this back-to-back with another Ray film: On Dangerous Ground.

I watched it again just now. It gets better with each viewing, in my opinion.

I have to admit that this time, the scriptwriter's violent actions were REALLY making me want to look at the TV and say, "Dump him already, girl!" Geez, Gloria Grahame's character was a bit dense. Just how many violent episodes was he supposed to have before she finally clued in that he isn't right for her?
