      Steve D Entertaining enough but nothing new. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/15/24 Full Review deke p 1939 ambience! GEORGE RAFT! BOGART! as ROBBERS. Wm HOLDEN unrecognizably young at 21. Desperate parolee, lucky to be making $10 a week, can't get hired. Some great old fashioned cars, guns, shootouts. Never heard of til saw on THE MOVIE CHANNEL, 3.7.21, SUNDAY NITE NOIR. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Its actually quite a nice movie. Much better than other Bogart duds but its not mind-blowing either just good time pass. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Invisible Stripes (1939) Staring Cliff Taylor played by George Raft & Chuck Martin played by Humphrey Bogart A film about two prisoners leaving jail & showing the life of the ex-convicts life. One done in riches by the corrupt way & one done the hard honest way. I thought that this film was pretty good at presenting how hard life is during the Depression. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/05/18 Full Review Audience Member Terrific Warner Bros crime story about ex-con, George Raft, getting out of jail and trying to go straight. His younger brother William Holden wants to get rich quick and Raft does his best to keep his little brother away from the influence of fellow ex-con, Humphrey Bogart, who has no plans of going straight. Raft and Bogart give strong performances and Holden is good as well, though it's rather odd to see him playing a golly-gosh-gee-whiz younger brother. I'm used to seeing him as much tougher, cynical and world weary characters like Sefton in "Stalag 17" or Shears in "The Bridge on the River Kwai" or Pike Bishop in "The Wild Bunch." Solid action, tough performances and a good script all add up to a classic Warner Bros crime flick. And I continue to be fascinated by the recent factoid that I learned that it was widely suspected that George Raft was a functional illiterate. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A fine work by Lloyd Bacon on the difficulty ex-convicts have on getting their lives back on track after incarceration, and the prejudices they have to encounter on a multitude of levels. Wonderful acting by George Raft, Humphrey Bogart, William Holden and Jane Bryan. Heartily recommended. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
