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.

  1. Walter Brennan really drags this down a notch (as he usually does). Bogie & Bacall are magical together, though.

    My memory doesn’t seem to work very well when it comes to supporting characters, but know I’ve googled Brennan and I agree with your opinion of him.
