Bogart is at his best in this 1940s film noir classic, as an ex-G.I. trying to find out who framed a pal for murder and then rubbed him out. It all leads to a twisted web of deceit and murder.

A down-on-his-luck boxer, reduced to driving a cab, offers to help a would-be actress who is accused of murder. But when his first wife’s body turns up in the back of his cab, he needs her help. This unpretentious film really packs a punch.
