Ways to help make a slow Mac faster


  1. Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQ on Performance
  2. Avoid using any third-party cleanup software. Usually, this software does more bad than good. You don't need it. All computers become slower over time even under normal use. Experienced users erase the hard drive and do a clean install from scratch from time to time; or whenever installing a major OS upgrade. Doing so means you must maintain regular and multiple backups.
  3. If you have enabled iCloud Disk and are storing your Documents and Data in iCloud, then consider turning that off and signing out of iCloud. It can slow down the computer considerably. Please see the following from the user, fotomac: 'The solution was to SIGN OUT of iCloud and my problem STOPPED! NO MORE SPINNING BEACHBALL! My computer's speed increased to what it should be and all my Apps now work!'
  4. Add more RAM or cut back on the number of concurrently running applications and utilities. Remove unnecessary anti-malware software and any software that promises to clean your Mac. Check for runaway processes: Runaway applications can shorten battery runtime, affect performance, and increase heat and fan activity. Also, visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQ on dealing with The Spinning Beach Ball of Death.
  5. The Ultimate Fix: Backup everything, erase the drive, reinstall OS X, and restore your data from the backup. Reinstall third-party software from original media/scratch.

High Sierra is a 1941 heist film and early film noir written by William R. Burnett and John Huston from the novel by Burnett. The film features Ida Lupino and Humphrey Bogart, and was directed by Raoul Walsh, with location work shot at Whitney Portal, halfway up Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada of California.[2]

The screenplay was co-written by John Huston, Bogart's friend and drinking partner, adapted from the novel by William R. Burnett (also known for, among others, Little Caesar and Scarface).[3] The film cemented a strong personal and professional connection between Bogart and Huston,[4] and provided the breakthrough in Bogart's career, transforming him from supporting player to leading man. The film's success also led to a breakthrough for Huston, providing him with the clout he needed to make the transition from screenwriter to director, which he made later that year with his adaptation of The Maltese Falcon (1941), starring Bogart.

The film contains extensive location shooting, especially in the climactic final scenes, as the authorities pursue Bogart's character, gangster 'Mad Dog' Roy Earle, from Lone Pine up to the foot of the mountain.

Plot[edit]

An aged gangster, Big Mac, is planning a robbery at a fashionable California resort hotel in the fictional resort town of Tropico Springs. He wants the experienced Roy Earle, whose release from an eastern prison by a governor's pardon he has arranged, to lead the heist and to take charge of the operation.[5]

Roy drives across the country to a camp in the mountains to meet with the three men who will assist him in the heist: Louis Mendoza, who works as a clerk in the hotel, Red, and Babe, who are already living at the camp. Babe has brought along a dance-hall girl, Marie. Knowing a woman means trouble, Roy wants to send Marie back to Los Angeles, but after some argument, Roy foolishly allows her stay. Roy also adopts a small dog called Pard. Marie falls in love with Roy as he plans and executes the robbery, but he does not reciprocate initially.

On the drive up to the mountains, Roy meets the family of Velma, a young woman with a clubbed foot who walks with a limp. Roy pays for corrective surgery to allow Velma to walk normally, despite her grandfather's warning that Velma has a boyfriend. While she is recovering, Roy asks Velma to marry him, but she refuses, explaining that she is engaged to a man from back home. When Velma's fiancé arrives, Roy turns to Marie, and they become lovers.

The heist goes wrong when they are interrupted by a security guard. Roy makes his getaway with Marie, but Mendoza, Red, and Babe are involved in a car crash, killing Red and Babe. Mendoza is captured and talks, putting the police on Roy's trail. Roy goes to Big Mac with the jewels from the robbery, but finds him dead of a heart attack.

Sierra

While Roy and Marie leave town, a dragnet is put out for him, identifying him to the public as 'Mad Dog Roy Earle'. The two fugitives separate to allow Marie time to escape. Roy is pursued until he climbs one of the Sierra mountains, where he fires shots at the police and then holes up overnight.

Shortly after sunrise, Roy hears Pard barking, runs out calling Marie's name, and is shot dead from behind by a sharpshooter.

Production[edit]

George Raft was originally intended to play Roy Earle, but Bogart, who took a great interest in playing the role, managed to talk Raft out of accepting it.[6] Walsh tried to persuade Raft otherwise but Raft did not want to die at the end.[7]Filmink said Raft 'turned down High Sierra because it was another gangster part, despite the excellent source material and Raoul Walsh directing (admittedly Paul Muni rejected the role first for the same reason… but Muni was a proper actor, well established in a variety of parts and Raft wasn’t).'[8]

Bogart had to persuade director Walsh to hire him for the role, since Walsh envisioned Bogart as a supporting player rather than a leading man.

Bogart's character's dog, 'Pard', was erroneously believed by some to be canine actor 'Terry' ('Toto' from The Wizard of Oz). In fact, he is Bogart's own dog, Zero. In the final scene, Buster Wiles, a stunt performer, plays Roy's corpse. His hand is filled with biscuits to encourage Pard to lick Roy's hand.[9]

Many key shots of the movie were filmed on location in the Sierra Nevada. In a climactic scene, Bogart's character slid 90 feet (27 m) down a mountainside to his just reward. His stunt double, Wiles, bounced a few times going down the mountain and wanted another take to do better. 'Forget it,' said Raoul Walsh. 'It's good enough for the 25-cent customers.'[10]

Reception[edit]

Critic Bosley Crowther liked the acting in the picture, and wrote, 'As gangster pictures go, this one has everything—speed, excitement, suspense, and that ennobling suggestion of futility, which makes for irony and pity. Mr. Bogart plays the leading role with a perfection of hard-boiled vitality, and Ida Lupino, Arthur Kennedy, Alan Curtis, and a newcomer named Joan Leslie handle lesser roles effectively. Especially, is Miss Lupino impressive as the adoring moll. As gangster pictures go—if they do—it's a perfect epilogue. Count on the old guard and Warners: they die but never surrender.'[11]

Time reviewed the film when released as having 'less of realistic savagery than of the quaint, nostalgic atmosphere of costume drama.' The reviewer noted, 'What makes High Sierra something more than a Grade B melodrama is its sensitive delineation of gangster Earle's character. Superbly played by Actor Bogart, Earle is a complex human being, a farmer boy who turned mobster, a gunman with a string of murders on his record who still is shocked when newsmen call him 'Mad-Dog' Earle. He is kind to the mongrel dog (Zero) that travels with him, befriends a taxi dancer (Ida Lupino) who becomes his moll, and goes out of his way to help a crippled girl (Joan Leslie). All Roy Earle wants is freedom. He finds it for good on a lonely peak in the mountains.'[12]

Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a critic score of 90% based on 21 reviews.[13]

Box office[edit]

According to Warner Bros. records, the film made $1,063,000 domestically ($18.7 million in 2020 terms) and $426,000 ($7.5 million in 2020 terms) in other territories.[1]

Adaptations[edit]

It was adapted as a radio play on two broadcasts of The Screen Guild Theater, first on January 4, 1942, with Humphrey Bogart and Claire Trevor, the second on April 17, 1944, with Bogart and Ida Lupino.[14] The film was remade twice:[15]

  • As the Western Colorado Territory (1949) starring Joel McCrea and Virginia Mayo, also directed by Raoul Walsh
  • In I Died a Thousand Times (1955), starring Jack Palance and Shelley Winters, directed by Stuart Heisler
