Trivia

  • Humphrey Bogart's part was originally intended for George Raft, who didn't want (or perhaps was persuaded by Bogart not to want) yet another gangster role. It was then offered to 'Muni, Paul' and perhaps to other actors before Bogart was cast.
  • Roy Earle's dog, Pard, was actually played by Humphrey Bogart's own dog, Zero.

    Bogart got this part over George Raft because Bogart agreed to die at the end of the film. This ending satisfied Censors; the villain was supposed to get get what he deserved. Bogart's career was on the rise and this movie cemented his stardom.
