Film Noir at is Bogey Best
11 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

The one liners; the dialogue that stops mid sentence; the black & white look; tough double crossin dames. This is great film noir or whatever its called. Bogey gets even. And Lizbeth Scott has the best voice this side of L. Bacall. Nice overbite. This is a good one to curl up and watch with the rain pounding outside. Too bad I live in this God forsaken So Cal where it never rains.
