Humphrey Bogart plays one of his rare comedy roles in this jaunty excursion about three convicts - Joseph (Bogart), Albert (Aldo Ray) and Jules (Peter Ustinov) - who are plotting their escape from Devil's Island. Fate intervenes when they hide out with kindly, but inept Felix (Leo G. Carroll) and his family. Felix manages a store for his arrogant cousin Andre (Basil Rathbone), who makes the fatal mistake of stealing Albert's pet, a poisonous snake. After resolving Felix's problems, the convicts return to prison, convinced that the world is much too wicked. Based on the play by Albert Husson.



  • A Long Time Favorite...

    By Bloodthirsty In Los Angeles
    I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it, and was tickled to watch it again whenever I could manage to do so. I'm glad to see that iTunes has it, so I'm grabbing it while I can, as I've seen other movies be available, and then disappear from their inventory. It's very low key and fun, with all three convicts being fairly philosophical during the course of the film, and comparing their actions to the baddies in the film most definitely supports their idea that the world is entirely too awful for them to escape back into it. It was a real disappointment when the movie of the same name, only starring Sean Penn and Robert DeNiro came out. It was downright painful to watch. One should see this, the original version, if you're looking for something to think about and have a bit of fun at the same time.
  • A must-have for Bogey fans and comedy lovers

    One of my all time favorite movies. Tough-guy Bogey turned softy. Great witty comedy and an all-star cast -- it doesn't get any better!
  • Great Movie!
