Dark Passage NR 106 min. 1947
Humphrey Bogart, convicted of murdering his wife, escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence. He finds that his features are too well known, and is forced to seek some illicit backroom plastic surgery. The entire pre-knife part of the film is shot from a Bogart's-eye-view, with us seeing the fugitive for the first time as he starts to recuperate from the operation in the apartment of a sympathetic young artist (played by Lauren Bacall) for whom he soon finds affection. The apartment used in the film still exists on Telegraph Hill.
