So I've seen some of the movies that Groggy and cj advised me to:

 The Caine Mutiny indeed features a great Bogie performance. (Fred MacMurray and Tom Tully were also great in supporting roles. Bogie and Tully were nominated for Oscars; the movie was nominated for a total of 7 Oscars categories but did not win any). That line where he says he figured it out with "geometric logic"  ;D 8/10

Dead Reckoning is decent, in the 7/10 range
Dark Passage is ridiculous. It gets 6/10 entirely cuz Bogie and Bacall are always fun to watch. The story is beyond stupid.

I just saw High Sierra for the second time, this movie goes way up in my estimation. My previous 7/10 rating was so wrong.
I'm giving it a 9/10  O0 O0

I thought Leslie was terrific, I always love Ida Lupino (not talkin about looks, I just mean she is one of my favorite actresses)... Bogie delivers a terrific performance and it's a great character. A terrific movie.

The only negative about this movie is that it spawned I Died a Thousand Times  ;D

OK, just remember the next time somebody starts shooting at you stand up rather than hunker down i.e. go someplace more exposed. Its a stupid cliche you see over and over again that makes no sense, whether they climb buildings, bridges, gas/oil tanks, or mountains. It's usually there to provide a spectacular fall

I believe Roy Earle was killed from behind, by the cop who had climbed the mountain from the other side.

I haven't see it in a while, but it's remake I Died A Thousand Times has Palance driving up an increasingly snowy road until he spins out, then he heads up too.

I'd go 6/10 too but it's watchable, it suffers from the love story, sort of what Leone was always trying to avoid.

8/10

Bogie is really good. I like his haircut.

Love story is not bad here, because it is not done for its own sake; it's part of the story of Roy Earle. Joan Leslie is the sweet, innocent girl, representing Earle's chance at turning over a new leaf, going into a new legitimate life. Ida Lupino is the bad girl, dime-a-dance joint, representing the dark side of life. Bogie tries to go with the innocent one but fails, representing his fate. The "good" world rejects him, the "bad" world pursues him. He is doomed.

The "good" world rejects him, the "bad" world pursues him. He is doomed.
No, Joan Leslie turns out to be not so good, just another manipulator who uses her looks and her innocent act to get what she wants from a man before throwing him away. Ida Lupino, on the other hand, is the bad girl with a heart of gold. If she and Bogie could get away together they could be happy but he doesn't see it in time. Bogie is doomed for falling for the false values in mainstream 40s cinema.
