Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

High Sierra
Director: Raoul Walsh
Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino, Alan Curtis, Arthur Kennedy, Joan Leslie, Henry Hull,

Humphrey Bogart plays a veteran gangster who is recruited to pull off a big heist, and Ida Lupino plays a young woman drawn to him. This tough, gritty and tight crime film doesn't have the reputation of Bogart's better known films, but it's up there with the best. A memorable climax on the mountains. Scripted by John Huston from a novel by William R. Burnett.
