Okay.. PLEASE don;t go mental on me.. I really respect the film but I just can't help it, I find this movie really, really boring!

Hepburn had slipped into hepburn mode some time before... basically she played versions of herself for the rest of her life.
and much the same can be said about Bogart EXCEPT that in this film.. he is not playing the standard Bogart character
he is playing as far out of his range as he ever had.
he was playing an awful scruffy boorish person and i can't think of another role he played that was THAT different.
(correction - Treasure of Sierra Madre..and you just tell me that THAT isn't watchable)
Like Wayne, he invented himself and when they played outside of themselves they were terrific.
it's a fun movie. let it go.
