Many feel that Casablanca is Bogart's best film. I disagree - but for
those who don't To Have and Have Not is a must-see film. It's
Casablanca with a different setting, this time we find Bogart playing
Harry Morgan, crewing a ship out for hire. His lovely lady is Lauren
Bacall in her motion picture debut playing the dark and mysterious Slim.
Teamed up with Harry's alcoholic side-kick Eddie, Cricket the night-club
manager by night,

Have or Have Not doesn't
have an artistic frame in it's reel. There are no allusions to art or
literature - just to sex. There are no deep and meaningful symbolic
representations. It's pure Hollywood, and although many will hate to
admit it pure Hollywood can be good. To Have and Have Not may not offer
anything new and exciting, but it doesn't need to, what it offers is
something good, and that's good enough.
