To Have and Have Not (1944) Directed by Howard Hawks from William Faulkner’s adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel. Walter Brennan as Eddie and Paul Marion as Beauclere.

Beauclere: You’ve got a good memory for one who drinks.
Eddie: Drinkin’ don’t bother my memory. If it did, I wouldn’t drink. I couldn’t. You see, I’d forget how good it was. Then where’d I be? Start drinkin’ water again.
Beauclere: Maybe you’d forget about water too.
Eddie: No I wouldn’t. I see too much of it.

  1. You ever been stung by a dead bee?

  2. Howard Hawks is one of the greatest and most versatile American directors, and about a half dozen of his films are rightfully posed as among the most accomplished of all time.

    TO HAVE OR HAVE NOT alas, is NOT one of them.

  3. Yeah, Sam, I agree on both points. Love Hawks, though I only mildly like this particular picture.

  4. Yeah, but Bacall is on FIRE. Look at her… LOOK AT HER!!!

  5. LOL!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I guess I’m in the minority. I’ve always liked this one. Loved Walter Brennan always and Bacall really is something else in this.
