One of Bogie's best films is the 1941 film noir classic, High Sierra. In it, he plays Roy "Mad Dog" Earle, who is released from prison and promptly sought out by an old associate to help with a new robbery. The robbery is botched and things go from bad to worse very quickly. The action will come to a exciting climax in the Sierra Nevadas. Along the way he as to deal with two very different women. An innocent transplanted farm girl Velma (Joan Leslie in one of her best performances) and Marie (the always great Ida Lupino, who actually receives top billing over Bogie). Bogart is top notch as Earle, a career professional who is not too cocky or violent, but just goes about his business. Taut direction by Raoul Walsh, crisp and exciting action scenes and a thrilling car chase. Plus there is a cute little dog too. Gather round to watch High Sierra, one of my favorite films and one of Bogie's best.
