Indeed. AAMOF, there are much better films in this genre starring Bogart.

At the time "Dead Reckoning" came out, I'm pretty sure that Bogart and Bacall were either living together or married. I doubt that Lauren Bacall would have stood still for Lizabeth Scott making more films with Bogart while Bacall was actually going to marry him. That kind of stuff just would not fly in 1947.
