To Have and Have Not

To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks, 1944)

Humphrey Bogart, Laureen Bacall

During World War II, American expatriate Harry Morgan helps transport a French Resistance leader and his beautiful wife to Martinique while romancing a sensuous lounge singer.

This has almost nothing to with Ernest Hemingway's novel. For example, the novel ends with Harry Morgan's death. The film has a happy ending.

It's simply a vehicle for Humphrey Bogart (playing himself, as usual) and his wife, who was 25 years younger. It's rubbish.
