Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As the hard-boiled professional fisherman who gives his ample ingenuity to a cause, Mr. Bogart is almost as impressive as he was as Rick, the Casablanca host.
Fresh: Lauren Bacall has cinema personality to burn, and she burns both ends against an unusually little middle.
Fresh: Bogart is in his usual metier, a tough guy who, no less, has the facility of making a dame go for him, instead of he for her. That's where Bacall comes in.
Fresh: The scenes between Bogart and Bacall are so dazzlingly about attraction and sex that they encapsulate the whole magic of movies.
To Have and Have Not
Classic Bogart. Right up there with Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, Key Largo and the Big Sleep. It doesn't get any better.
Manages to stay great
Needed Sidney Greenstreet, but otherwise great movie.
One of Bogarts best. Written by Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner screenplay, oh yeah!!!!!!
