A private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames.
Harry Morgan and his alcoholic sidekick, Eddie, are based on the island of Martinique and crew a boat available for hire. However, since the second world war is happening around them business is not what it could be and after a customer who owes them a large sum fails to pay they are forced against their better judgment to violate their preferred neutrality and to take a job for the resistance transporting a fugitive on the run from the Nazis to Martinique. Through all this runs the stormy relationship between Morgan and Marie "Slim" Browning, a resistance sympathizer and the sassy singer in the club where Morgan spends most of his days.Written by

In the mornings the cast would run through the script (usually fresh pages from Faulkner) while sitting in canvas chairs. Here Howard Hawks and Humphrey Bogart would often juggle or change lines to suit the personalities of the characters. After lunch, the scenes would be filmed. See more »
The scene showing the patrol boat firing at Morgan's boat, the machine gun is not recoiling, the bolt is not moving nor is there any gun smoke. This type of MG the bolt would recoil after every fired cartridge and would cause the whole gun to have some recoil effect. The gunner was just standing there, he would have to move his fingers or thumbs to fire the gun. See more »

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.
