When a fugitive mobster (Humphrey Bogart) must hide out in the Sierra Nevada after a botched robbery, he finds he cannot escape his past, nor can he ditch his moll (Ida Lupino). Adapted from a W.R. Burnett novel by screenwriter John Huston and director Raoul Walsh, High Sierra is now recognized as an early film noir. Traces of the earlier gangster and Western film also show up in this unique feature, particularly in its harrowing final sequences.
