Since it is such a classic, I was really eager to watch it. Out of the 4 movies involving Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it is probably the best one they made together.

Well I really enjoyed this film, but it's clearly dated.
It's also especially nice to see two Hollywood Golden Era Actors Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, it's a really good film. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in The Golden Hollywood.

"Katsottu: 8.7.2015 Mainio noir. Odottamattomia käänteitä, loistavaa näyttelyä, käsikirjoitusta ja suurin piirtein kaikkea, mitä hyvässä tämän genren elokuvassa pitääkin olla."

Kirjan monimutkainen rikosvyyhti, jatkuva valheen ja huijauksen ilmapiiri ja rikosten hämärät motiivit loivat haastetta elokuvasovituksen tekoon, jota kepeän Hollywood-viihteen muokkaama, maksava yleisö pystyisi seuraamaan putoamatta kärryiltä. Käsikirjoittajat Leigh Brackett, William Faulkner ja Jules Furthman päätti"
