Quotes

Sam Marlow: He was a good soldier. They were all good soldiers. Just doing what they were ordered to do.
Elsa: What do you mean?
Sam Marlow: Ah, I don't know what I mean. It's tough to tell the enemy without a uniform. You know what'd end all wars? Make everybody fight naked. Then nobody'd know who to kill, and that would be the end of it.
Elsa: Sam...
Sam Marlow: No, I mean it. And let the women get in there naked, too. That'd cinch it. No more war... just peace on earth and a lot of whoopee.

Got to me - the first 10 minutes
15 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Almost missed it. While visiting friends in Philadelphia sometime in the early 1980`s, I was channel surfing after everyone else went to bed. It wasn`t just Bogart he was obsessed with; but rather the entire era of those old flicks those of my age know so well. Add to that a plot liken to The Maltese Falcon - where so many different characters were interacting with Sacchi - and you have a piece of art as far as I`m concerned. About ten years later it appeared on TV and I taped it. >
