Thanks to Amazon, I am able to see again now and in the future one of my favourite movies of all time.
The screen sparkles with the dialogue between Bogie and the new star Bacall 'You know how to whistle, don't you?
Just pucker up your lips and blow.' Then there's the great piano playing and singing of Hoagy Carmichael, and the wonderful Walter Brennan.

They dont make them like this any more, never mind that it's the first screen outing for Bogart & Bacall this is a great movie. The chemistry between the two leads is awesome. It's is the story of the little guy standing up to tyranny and winning through guile and determination and in the process getting the girl. Walter Brennan is excellent as the amiable drunk side kick to Bogarts wise cracking anti hero. It is a little like Casablanca but who cares when there are actors of this quality on screen. The ensemble case is excellent, the interplay between Bogart and Bacall is scintillating. Love this movie. It has heart and warmth in its soul.

Loosely based on Ernest Hemmingway's novel, To Have And Have Not features crisp dialogue, seamless direction from Howard Hawks and top tier acting. But be that as it may, the film is best remembered for the coupling of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, who quickly took their on screen romance out into the real world. The rest as they say is history.

The story is set in the Caribbean city of Fort de France, Martinique, shortly after the fall of France to the Germans. Harry 'Steve' Morgan (Bogart) is a world wise fishing boat captain who is wanted to do a secretive people smuggle from a nearby island for the French Resistance. Initially very reluctant, Harry has to take on the job when a series of events leave him flat broke. Also into his life comes Marie 'Slim' Browning (Bacall), an American pickpocket who has come to the island more by default than design. So with his alcoholic pal in tow {Walter Brennan} and the Gestapo breathing down his neck, Harry has a whole heap of issues suddenly making his once neutral and tranquil life explosive.

Legend has it that Hemingway & Hawks were involved in a debate one day during one of their fishing trips in Florida. The out-shot of that argument was that Hawks proclaimed he could make a winner of a movie out of what he considered was Hemingway's worst novel, To Have & Have Not. Hawks duly delivered this hugely endearing, often funny and entertaining movie that is a lesson in on screen chemistry and finely tuned writing {Jules Furthman and William Faulkner}. The similarities to Casablanca are many, so in that, this is weak by comparison. In fact dig away the buzzing like atmosphere here and you find a pretty weak plot. But in its purest escapist form the film is a triumph. Savvy, sexy and not short on suspense, To Have And Have Not holds up to its classic status. 8/10

I'm not in a position to say how closely the film version of 'To Have and To Have Not' follows the Hemmingway source novel (not very much, from what I understand), but I can say that the film is an absolute gem. Bogart plays a skipper of a fishing boat. As in Casablanca, he is trapped in foreign territory belonging to Vichy France. He cares little about the political situation until his hand is forced and he throws in his lot with the Free French. He's the cynic who turns freedom fighter, and no one does this more convincingly than Bogart. Lauren Bacall is the girl whom he falls in love with and who is the unwitting reason for his conversion. Its incredible to think that this is Bacall's screen debut. She was only nineteen when she made this film, yet her performance sizzles. She oozes more sex appeal than Mae West, and yet has more class than Lana Turner. Bacall and Bogart fell in love while making this film, and it shows. The electricity they generate between the two of them could power Las Vegas for a month.
The dialogue, written by Jules Furthman and William Faulkner, is as sharp as a knife. Howard Hawkes' direction is as masterly as always. Add a good supporting cast, especially Walter Brennan as a 'rummy' and a guest appearance from the singer Hoagey Carmichael, and you have all the ingredients of a classic film, which this certainly is.
Dark Passage is hardly likely to go down as one of Bogart and Bacall's greatest celluloid efforts. Bogart is beginning to look his age. The age difference may not have been that noticeable in 'To Have and To Have Not' and 'Casablanca', but a couple of years down the line and Bogart is beginning to look like Bacall's father.
The film starts with Bogart escaping from prison. We see everything though his eyes - literally. The camera is Bogart.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents "TO HAVE AN HAVE NOT" (1944) (106 min/B&W) -- Starring Humphrey Bogart, Walter Brennan, Lauren Bacall & Sheldon Leonard

Directed by Howard Hawks

"To Have and Have Not" is notable mainly for an electric first teaming of soon-to-be marrieds Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and this free adaptation of a Hemingway story gives the stars plenty of time to shine. Bacall in particular steals the show with her checkered suits and her husky voice 'You know how to whistle, don't you? Put your lips together and blow.'

The interplay between Bogey and Bacall is some of the most unforced, natural acting ever to grace the big screen. And what could be sexier than Bacall's flirting before they kissed? One not to be missed.

The film works because of the great cast. Bogart does "downbeat but ultimately heroic" better than many others and he does it well here - tough, smart and morally challenged. Bacall has less of a character to speak of but she makes up for that by sheer force of personality; The two fell in love during the film and it does show on screen, with a great chemistry and real sexual tension between them - a heavy amount of classic scenes and hot moments also helps.

And then there's Walter Brennan, who takes a second-string role and turns it into a delight at every turn. He's a lush who can't string two thoughts together, and yet he sees all, knows all, and tells too much to the wrong people. And that walk! The booze, the sea, and the years, all rolled into one gait that's both wavering and seaworthy.

The great composer musician Hoagy Carmichael puts in an appearance as Cricket, the entertaining pianist at the hotel lounge. Flawlessly there are three musical numbers. Still remember Mr.
