Detective Film?


Recommended Posts

I think Dark Passage with Bogart was the first film to do this. We didn't see the face of Bogart until more than half an hour into the film, after he had plastic surgery.


Lady in the Lake followed this idea all the way through, and we never saw Robert Montgomery except occsionally in mirrors.

I'd say it was Dark Passage. At the beginning of Cheap Detective Robert O. was talking about how the movie "Cheap Detective" was based on a lot of Bogie characters. Obviously there was a lot a Casablanca in it and I assumed that it was Dark Passage they were referring too.
