Academy Award winners Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis star with Leslie Howard in the hard-edged drama of a group of strangers--sharing only a desperate desire to escape the trap of their own existences--whose lives collide with deadly results in The Petrified Forest. In a small desert town on the edge of the petrified forest--whose trees long ago froze into lifeless, unchanging rock--a disillusioned British intellectual Alan Squier (Howard) meets young Gabby Maple (Davis) who sees him as her ticket to Paris and to her dreams. Squier hopes she succeeds but plans to leave alone, a plan that ends abruptly when gangster Duke Mantee (Bogart) takes the two hostages along with the patrons of a small desert gas station.
