Time Out says

Classic thriller based on the David Goodis novel about a man wrongly convicted of murder who escapes, has his face changed by plastic surgery, and clears his name with the aid of a girl whose father was similarly framed. Brilliantly atmospheric San Francisco settings, memorably bizarre supporting performances, a superb use of subjective camera (much more effective than in Lady in the Lake) throughout the entire first third of the film. The only flaw is the momentary absurdity when the bandages are finally unwrapped to reveal the 'new' face as dear old Bogart's (although prepared for by the use of his distinctive voice from the start).
