This is a lovely movie; Bogart and Bacall are great together. Don't expect it to follow the Hemingway book, though - the part with Bogart and Bacall (most of the movie) is not in the book at all. I'm a big fan of Hemingway's books, but this is not one of his better ones; the movie is way better than the book in this case!

Bogart and Bacall are magic. Enjoyed the movie all the way through. Good pacing, great script.

To Have and Have Not is just an outstanding film. First, we have the story written by Ernest Hemmingway. Secondly, the screen lights up for Lauren Bacall. She is so beautiful and alluring with her soft sexy voice. Humphrey Bogart doesn't stand a chance of not falling in love with her. The story line of Bogart helping French freedom fighters trying to evade the Nazi's is thrilling in of it's self. To Have and Have Not is so respected, most movie critics list it as a all time Classic Movie. If you haven't seen it, your are really missing one of our finest films ever made!

A moderately entertaining story line is bolstered by Lauren Bacall, in one of the sexiest on-screen performances ever produced.

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. No falling asleep on this DVD!!!!!

Kind of a dud. This hasn't held up well. Bogart & Bacall are both vastly better in the overlooked "Dark Passage" than in this iconic bore. It ain't Casablanca. Ain't Hemingway neither. Read the book.

Quite a film debut for the striking 19 year old Bacall. She had the standout performance, outshining even her future hubby (marginally). You could sense something real between them in their eyes. The storyline paled in comparison to their discourse. Carmichael and Brennan were frosting on the Slim/Steve cake. FIVE STARS.

Wow. Now I understand what all this 'Bogey and Bacall' talk is about, especially Bacall (I seen lots of Bogey before). In fact, the plot was completely secondary to the two of them. Quite liked Hoagy Carmichael, too. But Bacall was the star, from the first chin down sideways glance to her happy exit wiggle.

Wonderful Classic directed by Howard Hawkes. Bogie and Bacall are enchanting. Hoagy Carmichael and Lauren Bacall Sing "Am I Blue?". I highly recommend this film!

(Slim kisses Steve) Steve: "What'd you do that for?" Slim: "I've been wondering if I'd like it." Steve: "What's the decision?" Slim: "I don't know yet." (They kiss again) Slim: "It's even better when you help."

Slim: "...You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe, just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow."

I'm real hard to get, Steve. All you have to do is ask me.
