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

The playing on the phonograph of "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan" as Vincent is recuperating at Irene's apartment after his surgery may have been an arcane wink to the audience. It was used in the previous Humphrey Bogart
and Lauren Bacall
movie The Big Sleep
(1946), when Vivian Rutledge (Bacall) paid off Marlowe (Bogart) at the gambling joint-nightclub. See more

I thought I had a good life here... but your going away doesn't make it seem good anymore. I've sort of joined your team and... and I don't look forward to being without you.
When I leave here, you're off my team, and lucky to be. Nah, I've got the Indian sign on me. It seems I can't win.
