Okay, does ANYBODY here like this movie? Because I just watched it and think it's probably one of my favorite Humphrey Bogart films now. It's not as classy as Casablanca, not as poetic as In a Lonely Place, and not as brawny as Treasure of the Sierra Madre, but it totally holds its own among them. The finale, which Martin Scorsese first introduced me to, is absolutely brilliant.
It's easy to judge harshly from where we are, but historically at least this movie marked a couple of important steps, including establishing Bogart as a leading man and spawning several remakes both as a gangster flick and a Western.
one comment dumber than the other.
