The structure and character sense of the David Goodis novel are intact, and a full-throttle supporting cast has a ball with meaty parts. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Even though bored by the story -- which, because of its sag, you may be -- you can usually enjoy the scenery, which is as good as a travelogue. Full Review

The plot is a stretch even in the realm of classic crime melodrama and film noir, not that it's an issue when you have the chemistry of Bogie and Bacall and great use of San Francisco locations. Full Review

An odd, atmospheric 1947 thriller. Full Review

This thriller is not quite up to the best Hitchcock, but it does prove that Delmer Daves is a man to watch. And The Dark Passage is a picture to see. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Dark Passage isn't a particularly good film - there's a lot of disparate elements that never quite sew themselves together. It's a crazy patchwork made up of different pieces of other movies. Full Review

Product Description:

Bogart and Bacall headline a wild tale of an escapee from San Quentin who has his face surgically altered to allow him the freedom to find his wife's murderer. Now a man without a past, he meets a sultry stranger willing to put him up until his face heals and they can solve the mystery.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Dark Passage
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, a prison escapee framed for murder who 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. - 1947

Production Notes:

  • Presented by Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc.
  • Contains the original theatrical trailer.
  • Because his character's face is altered by plastic surgery, Bogart is not completely seen until 62 minutes into the film.
  • Although Bacall appeared with Bogart in 2 other successful movies, Warner Brothers still required her to test for her role in this film.
  • The third of 4 Bogart and Bacall films, following "To Have and Have Not" and "The Big Sleep" and preceding "Key Largo."
