Rated NR · 106 minutes · 1947

An odd, atmospheric 1947 thriller with a San Francisco setting, adapted by writer-director Delmer Daves from a David Goodis novel and starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. We hear but don't see Bogart for roughly the first third of the movie, which features the subjective camera (a la Lady in the Lake, but handled more successfully) as his character, who's wrongly accused of murder, escapes from prison and undergoes plastic surgery, only to emerge looking like . . . Humphrey Bogart, before setting out to clear his name. The effective supporting cast includes Agnes Moorehead, Bruce Bennett, Tom D'Andrea, and Clifton Young.
