there isn't anything particular special about this film. the plot and dialogue are pretty routine, the pace is slow and not much happens to create any excitement.
released in 1939, "you can't get away with murder" was hardly a huge stepping stone for humphrey bogart's career. he would have to wait until the following year's "high sierra" for his chance of achieving ever-lasting stardom. here, he just goes through the motions like the rest of the cast and i can't say i blame them.
