The plot is a bit confusing (you need to read the book to know why), but one of the best film noirs ever.

A wonderful movie that is almost entirely the interaction of its two main characters, played by Bogie and Katherine Hepburn.

6. In a Lonely Place (1950)

This is another of Bogart's little known gems. It's not as fun to watch as most of his movies, but it is great nonetheless.

I think that this is Bogie's best performance (and he had so many of them) and the story is excellent as well.

This is one of Bogart's little known gems. It's done tongue-in-cheek and done well.
