Bogey's on the lam and Bacall's at his side in Dark Passage, Delmer Daves' stylish film-noir thriller that's the third of four films Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall made together. Bogart is Vincent Parry who, framed for murder, escapes San Quentin and soon emerges from plastic surgery with a new face. Bacall is Irene Jansen, Vincent's lone ally. In a supporting role, Agnes Moorehead portrays Madge, a venomous harpy who finds pleasure in the unhappiness of others. The chemistry of the leads is undeniable, and they augment it here with exceptional tenderness. Exceptional too are the atmospheric San Francisco locations and the imaginative camera work that shows Vincent's point of view - but not his face - until the bandages are removed. Lest Irene get ideas, the post-surgery Vincent tells her: "Don't change yours. I like it just as it is." So do we. Year: 1947 Director: Delmer Daves Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall Special Feature: Original Theatrical Trailer B&W/106 Mins.
Interesting camera angles, but the story is just a tad unbelievablePublished 1 day ago by Michael Anson Schroeder
Classic old movie from the days they churned them out quickly. Choppy, simple, predictable, but watchable. The lighting on Lauren Bacall makes it worth watching. Once.Published 2 days ago by Joe Langley
I guess I am just not a fan of a "role play" style movie... At first it reminded me of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid"....then I turned it off.Published 2 days ago by quikdrawers
This is a good movie but you really have to like bogart movies. Probably not one of the best but easy to watch and entertain you for the eveningPublished 2 days ago by Susan J.
Excellent suspense and buildup in the plot mystery. However, it falls short in the end. The end is ok but could be better. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Amazon Customer
This is a favorite of mine from childhood when I used to watch "The Late Show." Agnes Morehead steals the show!Published 10 days ago by Renny Berry
