High Sierra

"Grim"

High Sierra Review


Droll little Bogart film -- his first leading man role. Unfortunately, all the promise of intrigue and adventure in the Sierra mountains never really materializes. Instead, High Sierra is concerned more with a leg-extending operation for one of Bogie's dames and a dog that keeps barking, messing up his heists. The various robberies are utterly lacking in suspense or originality. It ends up as a rather plain entry into 1940s adventure movies which can barely hold your interest for its running time.
