      Dave Kehr Chicago Reader In many ways the ultimate Hawks film: clear, direct, and thoroughly brilliant. Aug 15, 2014 Full Review James Agee TIME Magazine Lauren Bacall has cinema personality to burn, and she burns both ends against an unusually little middle. Aug 15, 2014 Full Review Herman G. Weinberg Sight & Sound Asking an audience to laugh for two hours at the delirium tremens of a man suffering from alcoholism is a grisly thing. Aug 15, 2014 Full Review Zita Short InSession Film Bogart and Hawks, the veterans with a lot of pedigree, deserve an even larger share of the blame, as they didn’t pull their weight in a situation where they had all sorts of resources handed to them. Feb 2, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Bogie and Bacall make an engaging onscreen duo, delivering their lines with just the right amount of cynicism and coyness. Rated: 6/10 Aug 15, 2020 Full Review Nathanael Hood The Retro Set The effortless chemistry between Bogart and Bacall help distract from the fact that To Have and Have Not has little more going for it. Rated: 6/10 Dec 29, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Grégory D 94 % ??? Oh no, that's so boring compares with Casablanca. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Alec B Bacall is dynamite in this, so obviously a star from the first second she appears on camera. The movie is typical of Hawks, a hang out movie masquerading as a romantic thriller. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review John S Very sophisticated for its time. Irresistible chemistry. Sexy and fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review SoFla B It bears just the sketchiest resemblance to the book, and the story reworked here is kinda lame, but who cares? Lauren Bacall, only 19, was mind-blowing. Bogie appears genuinely smote in his scenes with Bacall. They end in real life getting married, though he was decades older, and by her account, they were incredibly happy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/23 Full Review CodyZamboni Movie's Casablanca like story takes a backseat to strong characters, snappy dialogue, and powerhouse chemistry between Bogart and newcomer, Lauren Bacall. In her first movie, Bacall exudes instant starpower. Her and Bogart both blow everyone off the screen, although Dolores Moran does have her moments. Speaking of moments, it is cool when Bogart gets pushed too far, and finally stands up to the Vichy pricks who control Martinique, Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/02/23 Full Review Larry L Some wonderful moments between Bogey and Bacall, and between Hoagy and Bacall as well. Yes, it's "Casablanca Light," but then this has Bacall's "Maybe It Happens This Way" solo--whew! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/19/22 Full Review Read all reviews
