Product Description

To Have and Have Not (Humphrey Bogart Collection) (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Yes, it's true: you can virtually see Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall falling for each other in this Howard Hawks variation on Casablanca but adapted from--as legend has it--Ernest Hemingway's self-declared "worst novel." (The story goes that Hawks told Hemingway he could make a movie of the author's least work, and Hemingway gave him the rights to this story.) The script by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman actually makes this one of Hawks's and Bogart's most interesting and often exciting films. Bogart plays a boat captain who reluctantly agrees to help the French Resistance while wooing chanteuse Bacall. Hoagy Carmichael, wry at the piano, adds a delicious accent to an already wonderful mood. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars An era remembered - with pleasure Oct. 30 2009
Format:DVD
Personally, I find myself annoyed when Reviewers comment adversely about the quality of 'old' movies.This isn't to deny that the quality - generally - isn't up to current standards - BUT, neither was the original print! The technology involved in film-making has improved immeasurably over the years.

Bogie and Bacall worked - together - mainly in the 40's and early 50's - even the first run of their movies was to see blotches, scratches and streaks etc., on the screen. It is hardly surprising that modern copies are not 100% perfect.

Considering everything, the standards, I find, are quite acceptable. The big thing is that the performances of the actors - when dealing with people like Bogie and Bacall - is superlative in every way. Today, in many cases, films become famous for spectacular 'effects' and other 'tricks'. In the (Good) Old Days, actors HAD to act for the film to be noticed above the 'crowd'.

Bogie and Bacall were consummate actors and these films showed their talents to advantage. While they excelled in Key Largo, To Have & Have Not, and the Big Sleep - ALL EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD MOVIES - even Bogie and Bacall couldn't completely overcome the puerile script of Dark Passage - although they gave it a good try!

All in all, great entertainment!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works because of Bogie and Bacall's chemistry. June 11 2004
Format:DVD
In my opinion, this movie's story is not all that interesting or original. As it's been said many times, To Have and Have Not is essentially Casablanca's twin sister, and bares almost no resemblance to the Ernest Hemingway novella. But despite it all, I must say that I prefer this movie as opposed to the other.
What makes this movie so good are three things: the writing, the acting, and the real-life chemistry between the supercouple of the time, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. The screenplay has perhaps some of the most clever and memorable one-liners in movie history. In fact, this is the movie that produced the now-cliche saying "You do know how to whistle, don't you...just put your lips together, and blow," as well as the lesser-known but sure-to-bring-chills "It's even better when you help," sdaid after Bacall kisses Bogart. The acting is extremely good, especially since both the leads can be very cold and distant one moment, and very warm and sweet the next. Finally, as this movie will always be remembered for, Bogart and Bacall are clearly falling in love as the story is going, a case of art imitating life. The sexual tension in the beginning can be cut with a knife, while the true love in the middle and end is nothing short of romantic and touching.
To Have and Have Not is a quintissential example of the stars making a subpar story into one of the most romantic films of the era. This is the perfect start in exploring the world of Bogart and Bacall, and perhaps the best of their four films.

By forrie
Format:DVD
Warner BrothersEnterainment does an outstanding job an converting this classic to DVD.
This was one of Hollywoods immortal romantic couples along with Gable and Lombard and Tracy and Hepburn. One difference Bogart and Bacall's passion was forever captured on the silver screen. We would always see those first torrid moments of acting become real life love story.
Lauren Bacall was nineteen year old upcoming star who was mentored by Hawks, with a Vernoica Lake hair sytle, alluring eyes and the deepest sexiest voice. You could feel Humphrey Bogarts emotions and admiration for this new sultry siren star. Quickly they became involved and later married and did 5 more films together.
"To Have and Have Not" was the perfect launch vehicle for the Bogart - Bacall Phenomenon. Loosely based on Ernest Hemingways novel of the same name, Bogart is an American fishing boat captain in Martinique a French owned island during WWII. A similar story line to Casablanca except he gets the girl.
This is a classic movie and a must have for the DVD Bogart library.
Special Features include; Featurette "A love Story", The Story of "To Have And Have Not", vintage bogart & Bacall cartoon, a 1946 Lux Radio Theater Production starring Bogart and Bacall and Theatrical Trailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Smokes --- what a pairing! Dec 22 2003
Format:DVD
Watching this movie can give you the vapors. Ye gods, has anyone's big screen debut been as sizzling as that of the 19-year-old Lauren Bacall's? Even 60 years later, Bacall's sensual presence absolutely smolders on the screen. While this is not the most gripping Bogart performance one is likely to think of, he is nonetheless fascinating to watch in this film. As the film progresses, it is unmistakeable that he is absolutely HOOKED by his co-star.
The storyline itself is a conventional thriller for its time, although it has the distinction of being the product of two of the greatest American writers, Hemingway & Faulkner. Not that they would have seen much merit in that --- Hemingway had a lukewarm attitude towards this work, and Faulkner hated every minute he spent in Hollywood, prostituting his talent (as he saw it).
This movie is not on a dramatic par with "Casablanca" or "The Maltese Falcon," and the subsequent Bogart-Bacall "Key Largo" has far more suspense & tension within it. However, none of these films can equal "To Have and Have Not" for on-screen chemistry, and there is indeed something to be said for that. In fact, I would be hard-pressed to come up with a film that surpasses "To Have and Have Not" in terms of chemistry, and that should be enough for anyone to consider this a classic.
