Bogart plays a man convicted of murdering his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence. Bogart finds that his features are too well known, and is forced to seek some illicit backroom plastic surgery. The entire pre-knife part of the film is shot from a Bogart's-eye-view, with us seeing the fugitive for the first time as he starts to recuperate from the operation in the apartment of a sympathetic young artist (played by Bacall) for whom he soon finds affection. But what he's really after is revenge. Written by

When the camera turns back to Madge, she is now sitting on the couch which was about 3 feet behind her. See more
I never met Parry. But I know psychologically he's no killer. He was just dumb.
What makes you think *you're* so smart. All you know is T-squares and drafting boards and not even much about them or anything else!
We've been through all of that before! A couple of hundred thousand times. A couple of hundred thousand years ago when I was a monkey and thought I wanted to marry you.
I could say plenty!
That's very true. Even Parry must have enough sense by this time to stay away from that...
