To have and have not (1944)

Only nominally based on Hemingway’s novel, the extensively rewritten story – troubled people, troubled places, troubled times – is not so very special. However, young Lauren Bacall definitely is, gliding softly through the exotic settings with strange face and even stranger voice.

In my book of magic debutantes.
