Passage to Marseille

In honor of today being the anniversary of Peter Lorre's death I declared a 1-day Lorre Blogathon. I've linked my posts on Peter Lorre's films here.

Passage to Marseille is a 1944 film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Humphrey Bogart, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre.


The New York Times concludes,
"Passage to Marseille" is a well-intentioned film with a lot of vicious action in it, but it never escapes from its own mechanical toils.

DVDTalk reviews it as part of a Bogart set and says,
This one may have good intentions and probably played well to wartime audiences, but it suffers greatly from an overload of propaganda.
