I first saw ‘Dark Passage’, the 1947 thriller, when I was in my twenties and about to move from the UK to San Francisco.
I had become a little obsessed with all things black, absorbing the long shadows, morally dubious heroes and double-crossing femme fatales in “The Maltese Falcon”, “Touch of Evil”, “Double Indemnity” and dozens others. But I had read that one film captured the city I was going to move to like no other film. Plus, it starred two of the biggest movie stars of all time — real-life husband and wife Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
