I wasn't missing out on much by not watching this.

Welcome to my top 30! This is just my kind of film. Very dialogue driven and it has a great mystery. Humphrey Bogart makes it, though! If he wasn't casted, I honestly can't see this movie working. He hits all of the right notes and gives a good blend of smart, wit yet can be serious when the film needs him to be!
