I'll Get You (1952)
4/10
Did the audience have an Escape Route?

George Raft made a lot of poor decisions about his career.As a result his career was going down the drain,and Bogart who was the beneficiary was an international star.He is about 15years to old for the role.In the climax he is totally incapable of making a fight look realistic.He clearly ducks away from a Haymarket.On the descending lift he is clearly only present in close up with the process screen behind him.He was like many actors of his era who became totally lost without the benefit of a studio contract.George Raft would of course become person's non Grata in the UK because of his mob connections.I recall working in a legal office who appealed,unsuccessfully,to the Home Office about this.
