"I've been looking for someone for a long time. I didn't know her name or where she lived. I'd never seen her before. But a girl was killed, and because of that I found what I was looking for. Now I know your name, where you live, and how you look."
Bogart's play off the material here is a wonder to watch. Alluring. Sinister. Mesmerizing. Even in the hands of a great actor, material like this could easily come off cartoonish. Gloria Grahme makes a marvelous foil, and her right eyebrow is exquisite.
