DOROTHY B. HUGHES ~






That's Humphrey Bogart & Gloria Grahame
from the stylish film noir (1950) of the same title
directed by Nicholas Ray.

Dorothy Hughes, a Yale Younger Series poet (1931)
wrote a masterpiece (1947) right up there with Raymond Chandler
if you're looking for a unbeatable read in the crime genre.
