Reviews
Mine: A triumph of acting and stlye over plot. Silly WWII plot, but Bogey and Bacall are great. Many wonderful lines.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Hemingway's ``worst novel'' forms the basis for Hawks' version of CASABLANCA: tough skipper-for-hire Bogart reluctantly becomes involved with French Resistance, less reluctantly woos even tougher Bacall (in her film debut). Their legendary love scenes make the movie, but there are also solid performances, taut action, and a couple of songs. (Andy Williams was hired to dub Bacall's singing, but that's her voice, after all. ) Super dialogue by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman; remade as THE BREAKING POINT and THE GUN RUNNERS. Also shown in computer-colored version.
