The best debut I can recall
10 January 2003 | by MichaelDJHSee all my reviews

It is obvious why Bogart fell for Bacall when you watch this movie. Yes, it is worth watching to see the mastery of a lacklustre novel by a director on top of his form. Walter Brennan is superb, with some great one-liners. Bogart plays a complex character well. But the reason to watch this movie is to see Lauren Bacall deliver the best debut imaginable.
