Dark Passage

DVD review from The Movie Snob

Dark Passage (C-). I finished my viewing of the four films starring Humphrey Bogart (The Big Sleep) and Lauren Bacall (The Big Sleep) with this 1947 release. It’s a strange film. A convicted murder named Vincent Parry (Bogart) escapes from prison, and the lovely Irene Jansen (Bacall) picks him up and takes him back to her swanky San Francisco apartment even though she seems to know who he is. A shady plastic surgeon alters Parry’s face, but Parry’s plan to hide at a friend’s apartment until he heals is ruined when his friend is murdered that very night. The whole movie just has a weird sort of vibe to it, but it isn’t terrible — it just isn’t very good.
