Screenwriter Dixon Steele (Humphrey Bogart) becomes a murder suspect when a hatcheck girl is murdered after leaving his apartment. His refusal to enact a show of emotion raises the suspicions of the Beverly Hills police, putting the main detective on the case, Brub Nicolai (Frank Lovejoy) in a tight spot, as he and Dix used to be Army buddies. Dix is initially overjoyed because the lovely neighbor who provides him with an alibi, Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), responds to his romantic overtures; he's a demanding man and the cool, intelligent blonde appears to be a perfect match. But Dix's background of petty brawls and his continuing streak of volatility frighten Laurel and make the cops more eager to trap him. He senses Laurel's anxiety and turns paranoid; either the strain of the investigation is ruining their chances as a couple, or perhaps, as Laurel is beginning to fear, he really is a dangerous maniac.
