Fantastic film-noir from Raoul Walsh, adapted from renowned gangster novelist W.R. Burnett's yarn, and embellished by John Huston. Agreed that this is one of Bogart's best, as the hard-boiled ex-con 'Mad Dog' Earle, softened by an ungrateful farmer's daughter. Including the loveable Henry Travers (who I can never see as anybody other than Frank Capra's "Clarence"). That little mutt "Pard" WAS bad luck. Awesome flick. FIVE STARS.

One of the best Humphrey Bogart movies. Sympathetic story of an old-time criminal with a heart and a broken-heart. Ida Lapino, Arthur Kennedy, Barton MacLane and Henry Hull are great in their supporting roles. Not to be missed.

One of Humphrey Bogart's best. He plays a hardened gangster, "Roy Earl" in typical "Bogie" style. He doesn't feel sorry for his crimes, he doesn't flinch at killing, and only occasionally shows signs of conscience. Love? I'll leave that aspect for the viewer to discover. Sure, he'll 'get out of this racket'---after he collects his last cut. But justice is hot on his tail, and Roy has strings tied to him that will ultimately trip him. This movie excellently portrays a criminal, hardened gangster as three-dimensional. Earl shows character and guts in a way that endears him to you. Recommend!

Marie Garson (getting ready to leave on the bus): "...I'm awful sorry for the way I've acted." Roy Earle: "You got nothin' to be sorry about!" Marie Garson: "Yes I have. Naggin' at cha and flyin' off the handle. I wish I hadn't. Ohhh..." (weeps) Roy Earle (smiling): "Aww, I like it! I mean, that's the way married people oughta act! Listen, my Ma and Pa fought like cats and dogs goin' on forty years. I wouldn't give ya two cents for a dame without a temper!"

Look at big shot Earl, just lyin' there.
