  1. I have seen this movie in its entirety, but I need a refresher on it, so I'm glad I'll be seeing it again tomorrow; I think that not showing the character's face in the opening, (and for most of the movie), makes it the most suspenseful. You just HAVE to know what he'll look like! Also, Humphrey Bogart is just wonderful.

I've never seen this film, (obviously), and am very intrigued by it. In a few select words, I'd describe it as "creepy" and "ominous".
