    Hell, Chandler didn't even understand what was going on. 8 years 4 months ago

    There is a lot going on, but it's not as confusing as most say. My only trouble was the amount of names, but it does clear up.

    Lauren Bacall was splendid.

    @RWJ
    Bogart isn't the best actor, no. He generally sticks to one character, but he's definitely good at what he does. Plus, he's always so likable, I think. Didn't enjoy him at all with my first introduction to him (Sabrina) and was confused to all the praise, but he really becomes more pleasing with each film.

    I'm one of those who got confused by the plot, but the chemistry between Bogie and Bacall is already enough of a reason to give this film a try. I particularly love the accidental prank call scene to the police. :D 5 years 4 months ago
