Many feel that Casablanca is Bogarts best film I disagree - but for those who dont To Have and Have Not is a must-see film Its Casablanca with a different setting this time we find Bogart playing Harry Morgan crewing a ship out for hire His lovely lady is Lauren Bacall in her motion picture debut playing the dark and mysterious Slim Teamed up with Harrys alcoholic side-kick Eddie Cricket the night-club manager by night resistance sympathizer by day and a cast of supporters Bogart and Bacalls adventures are as great on screen as they were off screen The film is based off Ernest Hemmingways novel of the same name Interestingly enough the film was made as part of a challenge between Hemmingway and the films director Howard Hawks Hawks claimed that he could take Hemmingways worst novel and turn it into a good film The result was a success - though the film is a far cry from the novel - so far the films title doesnt even make sense To Have and Have Not has every necessary ingredient for success sex violence suspense and the occasional musical interlude Hawks gives us a little of everything in his hacked-up version of Hemmingway and when the sparks start to settle he has Bacall do a little number at the piano bar which may be irrelevant but Bacalls lovely and libidinous manor far makes up for it The film may lack class but its all the more entertaining because of it Bacall and Bogart strike a match at the start of the film and the flame outlives Bogart The chemistry is so strong between the two that you cant help but believe there is more to their romance then whats scripted Youre right too
