Reviews:  This gimmicky film noir stars Humphrey Bogart as an escaped criminal who undergoes plastic surgery and holes up at the home of Lauren Bacall's character while healing and preparing to prove his innocence. If you can last through the first half-hour of this thing--which is shot entirely from the subjective view of Bogart's bandaged face, which we don't see until later--you might find ample reason in the stars' performances to stick around for the conclusion. But director Delmer Daves ("A Summer Place") tests a viewer's endurance with such an obvious, attention-getting ploy. The least of the Bogart-Bacall vehicles ("The Big Sleep","To Have and Have Not", "Key Largo"). "--Tom Keogh"
