BBC Film Review
[High] Bogey landed the tough-guy part of Roy 'Mad Dog' Earle, who escapes from prison to help in a robbery. The rage that Bogey demonstrates here was, as you'll find out on the fascinating 'making of' featurette, down to him being hauled in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee and accused of being a communist. Upon returning from being questioned, Bogey filmed some of his most memorable scenes, taking out his frustration on the camera. The film itself suffers from some minor print damage, but is otherwise well presented in picture and clear mono sound.

[They] At first an earnest but cheerful portrait of two brothers trying to make ends meet as Depression-era truckers, Raoul Walsh's They Drive By Night does a complete about-face in terms of tone about halfway through that's almost guaranteed to cause intellectual whiplash...an allegory of the American Dream circa the post-industrial twentieth century--our conscious or unconscious endeavouring to sell out. Of course, while this is echoed in the sensationalistic resolution to an otherwise unpandering tale, calling the film self-aware, nay, satirical, would create a whole 'nother set of false expectations.
[Casablanca] If we identify strongly with the characters in some movies, then it is no mystery that Casablanca is one of the most popular films ever made. It is about a man and a woman who are in love, and who sacrifice love for a higher purpose. This is immensely appealing; the viewer is not only able to imagine winning the love of Humphrey Bogart or Ingrid Bergman, but unselfishly renouncing it, as a contribution to the great cause of defeating the Nazis.

[Casablanca] ...makes the spine tingle and the heart take a leap.
