Impressive entrance of Bogart's Duke Mantee that leaves indelible impression
A very witty dialogue-driven film, not at all your 'typical gangster flick'. There are a lot of amusing interactions and the atmospheric setting has a lot going for it.
Bogart is phenomenal and Howard portrays an interesting character, but something about Bette Davis' performance really rubs me the wrong way. Otherwise the film is a true hit.
