The Two Mrs. Carrolls

As some of you may know, I’m a fan of classic movies. 

I watched this one last night. Humphrey Bogart plays an artist who slowly poisons his wife. 

Overall, not a bad thriller for 1947. That said, I much prefer Humphrey Bogart in the role of the wisecracking hero who says things like “another screwy dame” when upbraided by a sassy heroine. 

I’ve seen Bogart play the villain in a number of films, and he’s never completely convincing as the bad guy.
