It's pretty much The Maltese Falcon on a boat and lacking in timelessness.

Has so much going for it but it just doesn't completely wrap up into a nice little package.

Very enjoyable for viewers prepared to overlook the war effort propaganda.

Okay, but a bit silly in parts. It looks like it was, a film that got caught up in the war breaking out.

4/5's of "The Maltese Falcon" goes to war, but it ain't the same without Peter Lorre! Gee, wouldn't it have been great if Lorre had used Mr. Moto make-up and played Greenstreet's smiling minion? Seriously, Huston's direction is very fine, Bogart shows flashes of bitterness and savagery, and Astor--with her beautiful been-around-the-block face--makes you continually suspicious of motive. If the rah-rah war-time script weren't so corny at the end, this might have been a classic.

Very enjoyable in many ways, so it's kinda sad when it gets bogged down in 40's style racism and the plot gets lost as Huston got called away to serve. But I'll watch pretty much anything with this cast.

Trying to cash in on the success of The Maltese Falcon (1941), Warner Bros brings most of the cast for another mysterious acquaintance. However this time the script it is weak, clicking even less having to change the original idea of stopping a Pearl Harbor bombing when Pearl Harbor was actually bombed by the Japanese. Does have heavyweight presence of Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor having a real good time with this one, making up for some of the shortcomings.

Huston couldn't do anything about the essential mediocrity of the material, and when he was drafted into the Army Special Services before the picture was finished, he showed what he thought of the mess: he hurriedly shot a scene with Bogart trussed up and about to be killed, and then left his replacement director, Vincent Sherman, to figure out how to save Bogart in time to prevent the bombing of the Canal. The movie isn't really bad-just bewildering. Mary Astor comes off the worst.
