High Sierra - Trailer

Posted on: June 3, 2005 | Views: 60 | Comment

A seminal gangster film that focused attention on Bogart and writer John Huston.

Bogart plays a violent criminal just released from prison who knows he's got just one more job in him. An aging gang boss wants Bogart to lead a jewel heist at a resort. When he sees the inexperienced men he'll be leading (and fends off the attentions of Lupino, the girlfriend of one of the thugs), Bogart suspects there will be trouble and there is when a cop is killed during the robbery. A manhunt drives Bogart to the highest peak in the High Sierras where he awaits death at the hands of the police. A gripping portrait of a desperate outlaw and a breakthrough for its creators.
