To Have and Have Not
Introduced by Dan Sallitt, filmmaker (The Unspeakable Act) and film critic
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1944, 100 mins. 35mm. With Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Walter Brennan, Dolores Moran, Hoagy Carmichael. Expatriate American Harry Morgan (Bogart) helps to transport a Free French Resistance leader and his beautiful wife to Martinique, while romancing a sultry lounge singer who shows him how to whistle (Bacall, in her film debut). This loose adaptation of a Hemingway novel is a deceptively breezy South Seas variation on Casablanca, with Bacall’s Slim an easy match for Bogart.
