Storyline

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 Mark Thompson <mrt@oasis.icl.co.uk>

Goofs

When Harry calculates how much Mr. Johnson, his fishing customer, owes him, he says more than once that it is 16 days x $35/day, + $275 for the rod and reel he lost. That totals $835. When he has Johnson's wallet he says Johnson owed him $825 (more than once). Harry calculates the amount and says, "Now you got a little credit so that'll be 825". The difference between 835 and 825 is, presumably, "...a little credit". See more »

Battered Bogart meets 'The Look'
16 November 2003 | by didi-5See all my reviews

"To Have and Have Not" is notable mainly for an electric first teaming of soon-to-be marrieds Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and this free adaptation of a Hemingway story gives the stars plenty of time to shine. Bacall in particular steals the show with her checkered suits and her husky voice 'You know how to whistle, don't you? Put your lips together and blow.'

'The Look' was certainly an accurate description of this fine lady's first screen appearance. In support is comical Walter Brennan, as Bogart's drunken pal. Most memorable are the sequences where Bacall 'sings' (according to legend with the vocal help of Andy Williams!) to Hoagy Carmichael's accompaniment; and the lazy, sexy repartee between the two leads. A sizzling 40s confection from the great Howard Hawks.
