OverviewTHE PETRIFIED FOREST (1936): Bogart's breakout role! A rundown diner baking in the Arizona desert heat marks the spot where a fugitive killer (Bogart) sweats out a manhunt, holding a disillusioned writer (Leslie Howard), a dreamy waitress (Bette Davis) and others hostage. THE AMAZING DR. CLITTERHOUSE (1938): What makes a criminal tick, ponders Dr. Clitterhouse (Edward G. Robinson). Eager to study the physical and mental states of lawbreakers, he joins a gang of jewel thieves headed by ice-blooded tough guy Rocks Valentine (Bogart). HIGH SIERRA (1941): This heist-gone-wrong movie stars Bogart as Prohibition-era gangster Roy Earle, who's walked out of prison into an unfamiliar world: the jitterbugging 40s. Directed with gritty intensity by Raoul Walsh, High Sierra marked a transition from gangster films to film noir. ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT (1942): Get off his turf! Broadway smoothie Bogart becomes a hero in spite of himself when his hunt for the killer of his favourite cheesecake vendor leads to Nazi spies. Damon Runyon-style fun!
