The comparisons to Casablanca were inevitable, as To Have and Have Nothas resistance fighters, a memorable piano player (Hoagy Carmichael), and smoldering chemistry between the leads. But even then and now 72 years later, To Have and Have Not is a classic that stands on its own, and Warner Archive Collection has done a great job with this Blu-ray release. Below are five reasons to love To Have and Have Not.
I really love Warner Archive’s latest Blu-ray release Dark Passage, a film noir about Vincent Parry (Humphrey Bogart), a recently escaped convict who is trying to prove he didn’t murder his wife. Lauren Bacall is Irene Jansen, a rich young woman who has her own reasons for giving temporary shelter in her tony residence.
