Popular but rather dreary film-adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel was worked on by a handful of writers (as well as by director Howard Hawks and the actors, though only Jules Furthman and William Faulkner are credited), but still it's a somewhat rusty semi-noir without much plot to hang its personalities on (which Hawks acknowledged at the time). Hard-boiled American boat captain in France circa 1940 becomes involved in the Wartime Resistance. Fans of Humphrey Bogart have given the picture a sterling reputation over the years--and he's typically good in it--yet all the drama adds up to very little. Bogie met future-wife Lauren Bacall on this film, her movie debut, but we never learn her place in all this (and her 'singing' is barely passable, to be charitable). Highlights: the gorgeous, glossy black-and-white cinematography by Sid Hickox, Franz Waxman and William Lava's romantic score...plus the added pleasure of Bacall asking Bogie if he knows how to whistle. ** from ****

The first (and worst) of the Bogie-Bacall screen teamings...Reviewed bymoonspinner55Vote: 5/10
I've never read Ernest Hemingway's novel, but I'm aware that Hemingway felt this was his worst novel, and that apparently he and director Howard Hawks made some sort of wager that Hawks could turn this into a good movie. Sorry, but in my view, Hawks lost the wager. No doubt he had access to a great cast. Humphrey Bogart played the lead character of Harry Morgan - a fishing boat captain on the French island of Martinique during World War II who gets caught up in helping the French Resistance. The cast also featured Walter Brennan as his rummy sidekick Eddie, and this was Lauren Bacall's film debut as Morgan's love interest Slim. Even Hoagy Carmichael appears as the piano playing Cricket. So, the cast is great; the story unfortunately less so.
To me, it came across as a weak successor to the previous year's classic "Casablanca." In that classic, Bogie dealt with the challenge of helping the French Resistance and dealing with the Vichy authorities in North Africa. The idea is the same here, with the action transferred to the French West Indies. But the story takes a very long time in developing - it takes about an hour before we really know what's happening. That opening hour deals largely with Morgan's business relationship with Mr. Johnson, who rented his boat for fishing - which really had little to do with the story as it finally developed, and - admittedly just my opinion - Lauren Bacall is not the world's greatest singer! Where "Casablanca" provided an interesting study of the dilemma of French officials who had to choose between Vichy or de Gaulle, there was none of that here. The Vichy officials portrayed seem to have no hesitations or second thoughts about serving Vichy. In the end, everything seemed to fall together far too easily. There was no great build-up of suspense; neither was there any release of tension as it ended. It's certainly worth watching for fans of Bogie and Bacall, but in all honesty it's not a great movie.
How to take advantage of Bogart's popularity and acting potential? I think that this, after Casablanca, was the real question. Simply create a similar atmosphere, ambiance, scenery and themes, and finally let Bogart to finish the job. Despite Have and Have Not is a very good movie. Play with writers on the script is certainly an interesting background. Despite that TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT is a very good movie. Play with writers on the script is certainly an interesting background.
In an adventurous world intriguing story to enter the fate of small but important people. Sports fisherman, ordinary pockets and old drunkard fit that description. The thesis according to which the battle or revolution express little people in this case is true.
Humphrey Bogart as Harry "Steve" Morgan He again works the sidelines. Skipper who minds his own business. All approach with a mocking cynicism. Of course, at any given moment things happen that his views absolutely disrupted. The young woman and the resistance movement. Character too similar to Mr. Blaine from Casablanka with the important fact that the "younger character" from the very beginning of the story is very important. Lauren Bacall as Marie "Slim" Browning is a migratory bird that finally landed in the arms of Bogart. Chemistry is so obvious that it is superfluous to say anything. "THE LOOK" is spontaneous and excellent. Walter Brennan as Eddie is absolutely at the height of the task. Very good complements Bogart's character. Description of the failed old sailors and drunk were irreconcilable.
