Bogart is marvelous as a humorously grouchy gangster...
8 February 2000 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

...and Ann Sheridan can be quite fetching as the "showgirl" with the heart of gold who refers to herself at one point as being "technically a good girl". Fun, cliche-ridden, but with a lot of good lines. And Bogart is hilarious as he dead-pans cheating the oldsters at cards! Also: Is this the film that introduced the song "Angel in Disguise"? I only knew the song as delivered by Bugs Bunny!
