The structure and character sense of the David Goodis novel are intact, and a full-throttle supporting cast has a ball with meaty parts.

The story is involving, the atmosphere is as starkly noir as anything Bogart participated in, and the dynamic between the leads is as conspicuous as ever.

This thriller is not quite up to the best Hitchcock, but it does prove that Delmer Daves is a man to watch. And The Dark Passage is a picture to see.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

An example of how star power can compensate plot, this is the least electric of the Bogart-Bacall pairings; luckily, there's Agnes Moorehead, the screen's best hornet, to intervene whenever the going gets too lackadasical.

An odd, atmospheric 1947 thriller.

Dark Passage isn't a particularly good film - there's a lot of disparate elements that never quite sew themselves together. It's a crazy patchwork made up of different pieces of other movies.

What starts out as a thriller switches en route into a sagging, psychological drama, but recovers in time to give out with the satisfying gory stuff.

The plot has some admirable twists and turns and Agnes Moorehead, as the villainess, has three wonderfully showy scenes.

Even though bored by the story -- which, because of its sag, you may be -- you can usually enjoy the scenery, which is as good as a travelogue.

Moody noir semi-classic with Bogie and Bacall.

Maybe not one of the great noirs, but certainly one of the good ones.

Bogart's Parry sure is a guy with plenty of trouble and Bacall provides intelligent and gutsy succour, but this competent and interesting thriller just never quite makes it to classic status.

The film is almost stolen by bizarre performances by both Agnes Moorhead and Clifton Young.
