This movie was the last of the four films that would feature the husband and wife duo of Bogart and Bacall. It’s also a film noir classic.
This classic noir is set in the Edwardian era, and features Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer, and Joseph Cotten. The story pushes against many of the previously accepted ideals in Hollywood films.
