In the 1944 screen production of To Have and Have Not, Humphrey Bogart plays Harry Morgan, owner-operator of charter boat in wartime Martinique. Morgan's right-hand man is Eddie (Walter Brennan), a garrulous alky whose pet question to anyone and everyone is "Ever get stung by a dead bee?" While in port, Harry is approached by Free French activist Gerard (Marcel Dalio), who wants to charter Harry's boat to smuggle in an important underground leader. Adopting his usual I-stick-my-neck-out-for-no-one stance, Morgan refuses. Later on, he starts up a dalliance with Marie Browning (screen newcomer Lauren Bacall), an attractive pickpocket. In order to help Marie return to America, Harry agrees to Gerard's smuggling terms. He uses his boat to bring resistance fighter De Bursac (Walter Molnar) and De Bursac's wife Helene (Dolores Moran) into Martinique. The Vichy police, suspecting that something's amiss, hold Morgan's pal Eddie hostage, tormenting the poor rummy by denying him liquor. Predictably, Morgan comes to Eddie's rescue and manages to escape Martinique, with the delectable Marie as cozy company. In the hands of director Howard Hawks and screenwriters Jules Furthman and William Faulkner, the end result bore only a passing relation to the original story by Ernest Hemingway: instead, it was a virtual rehash (but a good one!) of the recently released Casablanca, replete with several of that film's cast members. The film's enduring popularity is primarily -- if not solely -- due to the sexy chemistry between Bogart and Bacall, especially in the legendary "You know how to whistle, don't you?" scene. The most salutary result of To Have and Have Not was the subsequent Bogart-Bacall marriage, which endured until his death in 1957. It's widely believed that Lauren Bacall's singing voice was dubbed in by a pre-puberty Andy Williams; this is not true. For the record, a more faithful-to-the-source cinemadaptation of the Hemingway original was filmed in 1950 as The Breaking Point.

'To Have And Have Not' is the film credited with launching Lauren Bacall's movie career. Under a personal and exclusive contract to director, Howard Hawks ¿ who evidently hoped for a more personal involvement with his young find ¿ Bacall disappointed her mentor by falling for, and eventually marrying, Bogart instead. In the film she plays Marie `Slim¿ Browning, a pickpocket and girl about town who crosses paths with Harry Steve Morgan (Humphrey Bogart). He¿s a sea captain in Martinique who is double crossed by his most frequent fishing patron, Johnson (Walter Sande). However, before Steve can collect on their debt, Johnson is accidentally killed by a stray bullet. But a financial reprieve comes by way of nightclub owner and supporter of the resistance, Frenchy (Marcel Dalio). If Steve can water taxi Frenchy¿s freedom-fighting friends to safety his pay off will be substantial. Like most of Warner's adventure films of the period, its not the story, so much as the atmosphere that makes up the sum of this film - though in this instance - no less than literary giant, Ernest Hemmingway, was responsible for the framework on which the film's plot is based. Again, Warner outdoes the competition when it comes to remastering their catalogue of great films for the DVD consumer. The gray scale is outstanding and fine detail is rendered with remarkable clarity. Blacks - for the most part - are black. The stock footage - used during the fishing trip sequence - is obvious, riddled with excessive grain and slightly out of focus rear projection. However, that's to be expected. The rest, as they say, is the stuff that dreams are made of! The audio is MONO but cleaned up and very well balanced. Warner gives us a featurette that, although short, covers a lot of ground regarding the film's production. There's also a Warner Brothers cartoon and the film's original theatrical trailer.

'Put your lips together and blow.' The classic line from this movie. Help the Free French? Not if you are a world-weary gunrunner Harry Morgan (Humphrey Bogart). But everything changes for him when meets a sultry siren-in-distress named Marie (Lauren Bacall). Full of intrigue and racy bander, this thriller excites further interest for what it has and has not. Who or what will she choose and will he follow.

For me this is the archetypal, pinacle work from Bogart (and Bacall for that matter) and is not bettered by works such as Key Largo or (gasp) Cassablanca. GET THIS ONTO DVD NOW, WARNER! This film is pretty much the only reason I still have a VCR...

For me this film has cinematography, ambience, and simple jaw-dropping quality that is not matched by more than a handful of films ever. Add to that the cool Bogart and the flaming Bacall, and for me this is the best film of all time. Why is this not on DVD??

I have been a Bogart fan for over 30 years. The chemistry between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is magnetic and comes across crisp, clean and fresh every time I see it. Walter Brennan is endearing, delivers some great lines and creates his charactor with skill. This movie has everything it needs to be rated a true Bogart classic, along with Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The African Queen, Key Largo, The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep, (my choice for the best version done). I have enjoyed watching this movie over and over and never get tired of it. A testimony to truly great cinematography.

This is a great film with strong performances and crisp dialogue. Humphrey Bogart stars as a sailor that reluctantly gets involved in the French resistance in Martinique. Also starring is Lauren Bacall (in her film debut) as a singer. Excellent performances and super dialogue make this one a winner!
