Edited, with an Introduction by Douglas Gomery
Tino Balio, Series Editor

Wisconsin/Warner Bros. screenplay series


High Sierra (1941) is a highly successful Warner Brothers gangster film of special interest to film scholars, and aficionados. It represented a turning point in the nature of gangster film of the 1930s. It was the film that launched Humphrey Bogart to stardom. And it is representative of the concerted efforts of the very best of Warners' talent of the era. In a period of serious reassessment of the American film, this revised shooting script, never before published, provides valuable primary data for that reassessment.
