Directed by Raoul Walsh
So I have been saying this in all my blogs so I might as well mention it in this one. I just got back from a glorious trip to London. Check it out!
But this is actually relevant to this blog because I saw the house where Alfred Hitchcock lived. It was awesome!
Anyway, back to Bogie. Well, this certainly isn't my favorite Bogart film, but of course, that doesn't mean it is bad. We are right in the midst of the strict Production Code and this movie did an excellent job of making a likable criminal even with the codes. This film is about Roy Earle, who gets out of prison to pull off another heist. There is a love triangle here; Bogie falls for a good girl while another criminal loves old Humphrey (kind of like Trouble in Paradise). Of course, it has a really predictable ending because it is a gangster movie.
I am really not a big fan of gangster movies, but it is a pretty good film regardless. Check it out.
Last movie Bogie made that he did receive top billing.
Ida Lupino hated Humphrey Bogart.
