High Sierra (1941)
March 2018 - The Edge of Noir

Directed by Raoul Walsh | Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino

Humphrey Bogart is Roy Earle, just out of prison and hired by his ailing boss to rob an upscale resort hotel. Even as he plans the heist, Earle has dreams of reclaiming lost innocence – dreams that do not include Marie (Ida Lupino) a hard-boiled dame infatuated with him. The film about a Depression-era crook at the start of a new decade was intended as a farewell to the era of gangsters – “As gangster pictures go—if they do— it's a perfect epilogue,” wrote Bosley Crowther in the New York Times. But gangster movies lived on, and High Sierra is remembered as the one that truly launched Humphrey Bogart’s career as a leading man.
