5.0 out of 5 stars They DID Have It All.... June 7 2002
This is my favorite Bogie & Bacall movie. Maybe it's because I love the sensual mystery of the Keys so much, and, combined with a John Houston production, and two Hollywood screen and real life legends, it can't miss. The story of an old hotel being taken over by gangster Edward G. Robinson and his crew of lug-heads on the lam is filled with drama, intelligent dialogue, and just a wonderful inter-play between a classic group of actors. Bogie & Bacall exude chemistry, as always. Bogie has a few cracks, but he's still our hero ! And Lionel Barrymore is wonderful as the wheel chair bound, but still feisty hotel owner. Claire Trevor is great also as Robinsons drunken, has-been floozie, a role for which she won best supporting actress Oscar. This film is sometimes colorized, avoid that version, it MUST be seen in black and white, as should all those great films of the 1940's (Okay, excluding Betty Grables Technicolor extravaganzas). Being an old Hollywood freak, I tend to see more than is obvious to most when viewing a movie like this. But anyone who appreciates great acting and a timeless story will like this film. It also has one of my favorite endings , a classic Hollywood ending, for a classic film. LOVE it!!

Format:DVD
Warner Brothers Studios had one of the greatest Stable of stars including; Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore, Lauren Bacall & Claire Trevor (won Oscar for this role) to name a few. Warners also had great Directors like, John Huston to orchestrate fantastic stories for their audiences.
"Key Largo", shot entirely on the Warners Sound stage (except the opening scene)provides us with a controlled fast pace tale in the Florida Keys.
Summary: Gangster Rocco (Robinson) & his gang invade the "Largo Hotel" to wait for a money drop. The hotel owner (Barrymore) and daughter-in-law (Bacall) & Rocco's lush girl friend (Trevor - Oscar winner) are terrorized & victimized by Rocco & his gang while waiting.
WWII veteran officer(Bogart) comes to Key Largo to console Barrymore and Bacall over the death of his son & her husband. Meanwhile a hurricane is approaching, casting all these characters and events together for a very emotional roller-coaster ride.
Warner Brothers had a monoply on making the best quick paced melodramas in the 40's (Casablanca, Big Sleep, Maltese Falcon, etc.). John Hustons ability to tell and the casts outstanding acting talents are effortlessly "Key to Largo's" success.
This DVD is an Excellent quality, Black & White, FULL SCREEN (before Widescreen), digitally remastered sight & sound transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Great Film Dramas Feb. 23 2000
Format:DVD
"Key Largo" is one of the great film dramas. It is truly refreshing, in this day of "in your face" violence and sex, to see a film that builds tension almost entirely through dialog and characterization. This is one of Humphrey Bogart's most underrated performances. Bogart plays a returning WWII veteran who has become somewhat jaded by his war experience. He comes to south Florida to visit the father (Lionel Barrymore-Mr. Potter in "It's a Wonderful Life) of a dead war buddy, who owns a hotel and is living with his son's widow, played by Lauren Bacall. Bacall, especially, is noteworthy in that she has very few speaking parts and communicates fear and anger primarily through looks, glances, and body movements. This is in contrast to her previous roles ("To Have and Have Not" and "The Big Sleep") in which was glamorous and sensual. In a way she is barely recognizable here. Edward G. Robinson is perfect as the insecure and easily manipulated gangster, Johnny Rocco. The entire film centers around Rocco and his cronies taking over the hotel and keeping the above characters hostage during a hurricane. The movie becomes a psychological cat and mouse game between Bogart and Robinson. At first, Bogart's "head" tells him to watch out for himself, but later he follows his "heart" in attempting to protect and free the hostages. Bogart is understated in communicating a man who is psychologically wounded by the war and who questions the very values he and others fought and died for. By the end of the film he becomes a heroic figure, but not in the mundane or facile sense. He is heroic in that he sublimates his own feelings of survival for that of the greater good and recognizes the need for one man to fight the evil represented by Rocco. This is directed by John Huston ("The Maltese Falcon") and in spite of the fact that all the action takes place in just a few rooms, his direction is dynamic and action packed.

4.0 out of 5 stars sweltering film noir classic July 7 2002
Format:DVD
KEY LARGO sits right beside THE BIG SLEEP as a very entertaining film noir classic. It features Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in one of their most memorable pairings.
Based on the play by Maxwell Anderson, KEY LARGO tells the story of ex-GI Frank McCloud (Bogart) who travels to a hotel in Key Largo owned by his old army buddy's widow Nora Temple (Bacall) and her crippled father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore). Also staying at the hotel is notorious gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson), his cronies and his good-hearted moll (Claire Trevor).
As Johnny holds Frank and Nora hostage in the hotel, a vicious storm rages outside, rivalled only by the storm of passions and tempers inside the hotel at Key Largo.
Claire Trevor won a well-deserved Oscar for Best Supporting Actress here. Her heartbreaking performance includes singing the song "Moanin' Low".
The DVD includes the trailer.

I'm not sure why I like this movie so much, but I do. In probably my favorite scene, Bogart's character appears to praise Robinson's character, Johnny Rocco. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Bogart's better films
It has its moments, but this particular movie is substandard compared to Bogart's other films. The acting is not particularly good and the dialogue isn't clever either. Read more
