1947, Delmer Daves, USA, 106 min.
Classic film noir showcasing the undeniable chemistry of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall for the third time. A false accusation of murder, an escape from prison, with plastic surgery as the ultimate disguise,leads to a desperate search for the true killer in atmospheric San Francisco.
“Daves’ stark, involving mystery has earned well-deserved respect, and holds up well today”¦ the film provides terrific entertainment and the opportunity to savor one of Hollywood’s most legendary love teams in its prime.” —David Krauss
