KEY LARGO: A hurricane swells outside, but it's nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) holes up--and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall), her invalid father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) and ex-GI Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart).

McCloud's the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco. But the post-war world's realities may have taken all the fight out of him.

John Huston co-wrote and compellingly directs this film of Maxwell Anderson's 1939 play with a searing performance by Claire Trevor as Rocco's gold-hearted, boozy moll. In Huston's hands, it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic.

TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT: Help the Free French? Not world-weary Harry Morgan (Humphrey Bogart). But he changes his mind when a sultry siren named Marie asks, "Anybody got a match?" That red-hot match is Bogart and 19-year-old Lauren Bacall in her acting debut. Full of intrigue and racy banter (certain whistling instructions), this thriller excites further interest for what it has and has not.

Cannily directed by Howard Hawks and smarty written by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman, it doesn't have much similarity to Ernest Hemingway's novel. And it strongly resembles Casablanca: French resistance fighters, a bluesy piano man (Hoagy Carmichael) and a Martinique bar like Rick's Cafe Americaine. But foremost, it has Bogart and Bacall, carrying on with a passion that smoulders from the tips of their cigarettes clear through to their souls.
