Bogart is on decent enough form and the usual suspects, including Conrad Veidt and Peter Lorre, lurk in the shadows as they often did in these vehicles.
| Original Score: 3/5
Often-underrated director Vincent Sherman demonstrates a fine feel for the ambiance of 1940s New York, with plenty of machine-gun dialogue to spice up the proceedings.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Bogart, as retired mobster turned bigtime gambler, is easy to take.
Bogart is great in this comedy thriller, which was made during WWII and was much ahead of its time in narrative and tone.
| Original Score: B+
In spite of its slap-bang construction and its hour-and-three-quarters length, the picture does move with precision and steadily maintained suspense.
Strong acting from a superb cast make it more than watchable, though both propaganda and direction are less than inspired.
Boisterous Warner Bros. action comedy about Nazis in Manhattan
| Original Score: 4/5
Enjoyable WWII propaganda made by great cast and slick direction
A patriotic Runyonesque spy spoof.
| Original Score: B-
An excellent Warner Brothers actioner from 1942.
