Writer-director Michael Winner inexpli- cably shifts the locale for this remake of the 1946 Bogart classic from Los Angeles to London. Mitchum gives a good account of himself as Raymond Chand- ler's laconic private eye out to rescue a millionaire's young daughter from a blackmailer and finding himself in a slew of mystery and murder. While Bogart's film remains the better of the two, starry casting including James Stewart, Oliver Reed, John Mills and Richard Boone make this a tense and enjoyable mystery-thriller.Recommended.
