Dark Passage (1947)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

A Face in the Shroud

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The third of their four films together, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall teamed up for one of the great San Francisco films, Dark Passage (1947), based on David Goodis' novel. Bogart plays another escaped convict (from Alcatraz) and Bacall helps him get plastic surgery. Writer/director Delmer Daves initially directs the film from Bogart's point of view and we don't see his face until afterwards.
