Bogie is at his most terrific yet he's matched by grizzled Walter Huston and honest Tim Holt.
Several of his most famous roles tend to bypass his gravelly countenance and sell him as a damaged anti-hero with a slightly romantic edge, for good (Casablanca) or not-so-good (Sabrina).
This film features one of his strongest and most difficult performances. Bogart plays the character of Fred C.
