To Have and Have Not (11-Oct-1944)|
Director: Howard Hawks
Writers: Jules Furthman; William Faulkner
From novel by: Ernest Hemingway
Producer: Howard Hawks
Keywords: Thriller, Romantic Drama, WWII, French Resistance
Charter fisherman Harry Morgan lends his assistance to a member of the French Resistance, transporting him and his wife to the Caribbean island of Martinique, controlled by the Vichy government; he falls in love with singer Marie Browning, "Slim." Legendarily, Howard Hawks bragged to Ernest Hemingway that he could take the worst of his novels, and make a good film of it. He did this by disregarding the novel's contents; To Have and Have Not is very close to being a remake of Casablanca (1942). Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married soon after release.
