Dark Passage (1947, Delmer Daves)

"Bogart plays a man convicted of murdering his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence."

A film noir starring Bogart/Bacall that is mostly told in first person perspective. Awesome.

Whats not awesome is that the twist is told you too much in advance and you just wait for the film to catch up.

Everything else though is too stylish not to like.

- B+
