Bogart plays a man convicted of murdering his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence. Bogart finds that his features are too well known, and is forced to seek some illicit backroom plastic surgery. The entire pre-knife part of the film is shot from a Bogart’s-eye-view, with us seeing the fugitive for the first time as he starts to recuperate from the operation in the apartment of a sympathetic young artist (played by Bacall) for whom he soon finds affection. But what he’s really after is revenge. —IMDb
the pov shots are superb and the dream sequence too. and how great is to see bogart and bacall close-ups on a silver screen? amazing!
No llega a las alturas de El Sueño Eterno, pero me gustó más que Cayo Largo. El uso de la cámara subjetiva me pareció audaz y sorprendente (durante los primeros 37 minutos nunca vemos el rostro del protagonista de la historia). Agnes Moorehead hace una actuación notable en plan de mujer mezquina y resentida.
