All four films are made by Warner Brothers, in black and white; all but "Dark Passage" made entirely on studio back lots, despite the ostensible tropical settings of "To Have and Have Not," and "Key Largo." In most, Bogie plays a character that will be familiar to his fans from his previous work, particularly the great wartime hit "Casablanca" that directly preceded "To Have." We see some of the familiar Warner Brothers company of supporting players in these films, and some well-known, highly-esteemed actors, but the pictures belong to Bogie and Bacall, as they fire up the screen, as lovers and then newly-marrieds.
"To Have and Have Not," supposedly resulted from a bet between Hawks and Ernest Hemingway, famed American author of the book on which it's based. Hawks said he could get a good movie from Hemingway's worst book, which this was. Hawks did so, with a screenplay by another famed American novelist, William Faulkner, and Jules Furthman. The picture, however, is an effort to remake "Casablanca," without Ingrid Bergman, or the earlier movie's sterling supporting cast. Set on a French-speaking Caribbean island, with Vichy French and Free French at war. Almost-heroic Free French fighter, and his wife.Read more ›
The Big Sleep is a film I`ve watched - oh, I`ve lost count of the number of times, but it must be about twenty. Famously, original author Raymond Chandler was asked during filming, by a confused Hawks, just who pushed the dead guy in the car off the harbour wall into the sea. Chandler thought a bit (though not much, I bet) and replied: "Damned if I know".
I don`t know either, and I don`t care. There are so many great moments in this quintessential film noir that such minor quibbles are irrelevant. The early scene in the general`s hothouse is grimly amusing - "Do you like orchids, Mr Marlowe?" - "Not much, no." - "Nasty things..." Or Bogie`s first sparring with Bacall as the slightly less wayward of the two daughters. Or there`s the scene later on in a bar, with the filthiest dialogue of any forties film. Oh, of course it`s all hidden behind euphemism and double entendre, but how it passed the ever-vigilant censors I can`t imagine. (They were no doubt too unimaginative to notice the undercurrents.) It involves horses and their riders...
A great film, endlessly rewarding.
To Have And Have Not is sheer bliss. Bogie and Bacall in their first film together, romancing each other off set (much to Hawks`s envy) and having a ball on the set. Their relaxed enjoyment is infectious. Walter Brennan was never better as Bogie`s rummy sidekick Eddie - "Was you ever stung by a dead bee?" - and Hoagy Carmichael is unforgettable as the singing, piano playing Cricket.Read more ›
