I'm sure it's not the one where is paralyzed in a car crash and can only move his little finger. He is presumed dead but is only rescued from the mortuary when someone notices an involuntary tear on hi cheek.

It sounds like "Dark Passage" (1947),where Bogie's face isn't seen until he has plastic surgery about halfway through.

Absolutely correct, Dark Passage with Lauren Bacall. Very interesting attempt at something different. Good thriller too.

Dark Passage [1947] (Expensive)
Dark Passage [ 1947 ] + extra's [ dutch import]
There is a great Box Set which includes Dark Passage, the other films are better know, To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep and Key Largo. £30 currently though.
Bogie and Bacall Signature DVD Box Set

Thankyou folks, I'm sure that's the one - I'll look out for it.

WORKMAN, the film about the paralyzed man is an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode with Joseph Cotten.

Dark Passage came from the David Goodis novel of the same name, which is an excellent read. He also wrote Shoot the Piano Player and Moon in the Gutter, both made into very good films. He tended to write about ground-down little guys who are given problems not always of their own making.
