Since it is such a classic, I was really eager to check it out. Well, from the 4 movies involving Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, it was probably the best one they made together. To be honest, it was a rather confusing story.

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.

"30.7. Olisin ehkä saanut tästä enemmän irti, jos olo ei olisi ollut niin tunkkaisen väsynyt ja jos ei olisi tarvinnut käydä ripuloimassa puolen tunnin välein. Turhan fiini valinta hikisen leffamaratonin alkajaisiksi. "

"Too confusing, misleading, and with a weak payoff in the end. Definetly I am not very fond of Bogart's movies."
