8,0-8,5 points
A wonderful classic movie with Henry Fonda. Beautiful black and white cinematography (very noirish), good acting performances, unique characters and interesting story.

I liked the chemistry between Viktor de Kowa and Ilse Werner here.
Very nice German romantic movie.

my rating: 8,0-8,5
(unsure, watched the movie many years ago; I initially rated it with 9 points but lowered the rating years later due to my new stricter rating system.)

This famous movie made its beautiful soundtrack "As Time Goes By" famous too. The song was already written in 1931.

Nice story, cinematography and good actors especially James Cagney. It was interesting to see what methods and technical innovations of that time the police was using.

A film noir about an alcoholic. Ray Milland was very convincing in his role and deservedly won the Academy Award.

A movie with a very dark mood. It was one of the first film noirs that I watched -
it roused my interest for this genre.

The highlights of this movie are the beautiful Lana Turner and the nice film noir typical night shots. But the story is weak.

I liked Humphrey Bogart's performance and the cinematography is great. The story was not so interesting, too many dialogues. I expected more of this movie. In addition the soundtrack of the German dubbed version was annoying (Jazz music from the 60s - it destroyed some of the atmosphere) but it's not the fault of the original movie so I don't include it in my rating.
