To Have And Have Not Review


Excellent
Lauren Bacall made her nerve-wracked screen debut in the memorable Howard Hawks film To Have and Have Not, put opposite the hugely famous Humphrey Bogart in a Casablanca-esque tale of intrigue in France during WWII. Bogart's crusty fisherman and Bacall's swindling lounge singer get roped into aiding the French resistance, but the plot is ultimately a throwaway -- having none of the depth of Casablanca. Instead, To Have and Have Not owes its success to some fiery chemistry between its leads as well as amazing supporting turns by Walter Brennan and Hoagy Carmichael. The jazzy tunes played in Bacall's bar are unforgettable, too. You know how to whistle, don't you?

Young Man With A Horn Review


Very Good
Kirk Douglas always loved playing self-destructive artists. Here he's a musical virtuoso who discovers an uncanny ability to play piano on sight, then picks up a trumpet in a pawn shop and falls in love with it right away.

As a grown man, Douglas's Rick Martin (loosely based on a musician named Bix Beiderbecke) finds himself itching to play jazz but stifled by the constraints of playing in a dance band. His love life fares even worse, as his eventual wife Amy North (Lauren Bacall) runs hot and cold. Throughout it all, his mentor Smoke Willoughby (Hoagy Carmichael) and singer pal Jo (Doris Day) stand by his side while Rick tries to hit an elusive high note that no one else has ever played.
