Having had his day as an idolized star and romantic leading man, it was now time for Bogart to get down to the serious business of acting? For eighteen years it had usually been Bogart playing Bogart in various shadings?

Certainly a consuming piece of cinematic achievement. I was delighted in viewing this film, especially when you have the talents of Bogart, Holt and Huston?..oh what abilities or should I say ?gifts'.
My eyes never strayed from the screen, I couldn't take the risk of missing one second of this tremendous adventure/drama film. Bogart played the character ?Fred C.

Philip Francis Queeg' in `The Caine Mutiny' surely no one would disagree he carried the part to it's limit. Show More
