Probition 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. Directed with gritty intensity by Raoul Walsh. High Sierra signalled a new era. Bogart’s unmaking performance marked the transition from the well defined villainy of gangster films to the existentially gray areas of film noir. High Sierra means high excitement!
This is a classic Black and White movie, that has been colorized.
