Dark Passage Details


[[Performer~P103333~Robert Montgomery~robertmontgomery]]'s 1946 film [[Feature~V28095~Lady in the Lake~ladyinthelake]] attempted to tell the entire story with a "subjective camera": shooting the film from the point of view of the main character, with the camera acting as his "eyes". The first hour or so of Dark Passage does the same thing--and the results are far more successful than anything seen in [[Performer~P103333~Montgomery~robertmontgomery]]'s film. [[Performer~P7027~Humphrey Bogart~humphreybogart]] heads the cast as an escaped convict, wrongly accused of his wife's murder. After being forced to beat up a man ([[Performer~P78142~Clifton Young~cliftonyoung]]) from whom he's hitched a ride, [[Performer~P7027~Bogart~humphreybogart]] hides out in the apartment of [[Performer~P3116~Lauren Bacall~laurenbacall]], while recovering from plastic surgery, and tries to set about locating the actual murderer. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
