Description
Both The Big Sleep (1946) and Key Largo (1948) were career high points for Humphrey Bogart and the late Lauren Bacall, two luminous stars of Hollywood's golden era. Playing Raymond Chandler's PI Philip Marlowe in the former, Bogart investigates the involvement of a society girl (Bacall) in the murder of a pornographer. In John Huston's riveting thriller Key Largo, the AFI's No. 1 film star of the 20th century tangles with a ruthless gangster (Edward G. Robinson) during a hurricane. Visiting Florida to visit Nora (Bacall), the wife of a friend who died in the war, returning veteran Frank (Bogey) finds that the hotel she runs with her father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) has been overtaken by Rocco (Robinson) and his gang of thugs. Claire Trevor won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her nuanced performance as Rocco's abused, alcoholic mistress.

"Could [Chandler] have imagined a more perfect embodiment of his archetypal hero than Humphrey Bogart?... Hawks's movie is a film noir touchstone, and features one of Bogart's best good-man-in-a-tough-spot performances, alongside the irresistible Lauren Bacall."óWashington Post

"Adapted from a stage play, [Key Largo] is an exercise in claustrophobic tension that is far superior to an overrated film like Hitchcock's 'Rope', for example."óBBC
