"Prohibition era gangster Roy Earle (Humphrey Bogart) walks out of prison ... and into two unfamiliar worlds: the jitterbugging 1940s and the towering majesty of High Sierra. This fast-paced, heist-gone-wrong manhunt movie is also a fascinating study of a man time has passed by. Earle identifies more with the era's homeless Okies than the callow punks he leads on a disastrous hotel robbery. Then the teenager he loves (Joan Leslie) rejects him and only Marie (Ida Lupino), a weary '30s survivor like himself, remains loyal when cops close in"--Container

A poignant love story centered around the lives of three young, disillusioned returned soldiers caught up in the turmoil of post World War I Germany. Their close friendship is strengthened by their shared love for the same woman who is dying of tuberculosis. Careful self-censorship by M-G-M lessened the films impact as an indictment of Nazi Germany, yet despite the Hollywood makeover of Remarque's novel (he also wrote 'All Quiet on the Western Front') the film still conveys the haunting sense of hopelessness and waste felt by a generation of youth indelibly marked by the war and its consequences

Next, Scott is Riding shotgun and heading into a whirlwind of trouble: a mob bent on vigilante justice wrongly suspects him of robbing a stagecoach. An action bull's-eye all the way!"--Container
