Bogart learns to love La Resistance: Casablanca vs To Have And Have Not

Message Bookmarked

One of these is truly outstanding, one of the best things I've ever seen. The other is a strong candidate for the most overrated film of all time. Your job is to work out which one is which, and agree with me. Oh, and hello again everyone :D

to have and have not is my favorite movie of all time so that gets my vote but they're both great

they're both great. despite my love of hawks, i might actually go with casablanca -- it really is a pretty perfect movie.

the thread title reminds me that i've been half-consciously associating bogie with albert camus for years.

To Have and Have Not can't compare to The Big Sleep. Nor to a brilliant 'happy accident' like Casablanca, one of the most triumphant studio-assembled star vehicles.

triumphant studio-assembled star vehicles

to have and have not is a pretty good exemplar of general, all-star studio assembly, though: faulkner adaptation of hemingway novel, music by carmichael, starring bogart and bacall and whoever plays the crazy old guy.

I do think Casablanca's somewhat overrated. I like it fine, but when it sometimes shows up on polls as the second- or third-greatest film ever made, to me that's overrated; in terms of Bogart films in close proximity, I don't think it's as good as The Big Sleep or The Maltese Falcon. It's been quite a while since I last saw To Have and Have Not," so I'm not sure which one I'd prefer today. Probably Casablance.

xpost: It doesn't really have any kind of a critical reputation--Mark Robson directed, and I suppose it's kind of stagy compared to the noirs from the '40s--but for Bogart's performance (Steiger's great too), and as a sports film, I think it's great.

my grandfather was a lifelong bogart fan, and talked about how if he hadn't been aware that, as a man of grandfatherly years, he only had so many books left in him, he'd sit and re-read hammett & chandler all day. i mentioned in a lonely place to him once after seeing it re-screened and found he hadn't seen it, and managed to send him a copy to watch in the couple of months before he died. i'm so glad, & would've so regretted it if it had slipped by - such a kinda typical but extreme bogart role, such a good movie.

Yeah, that's ludicrous, but it's not the movie's fault.

btw schlump, Walter Brennan played crazy old guys for about 40 years, and "Was you ever stung by a dead bee" is the only line I can quote from TH&HN that isn't in the whistle scene.

ha ha; that's the only line of his i remember, too. he could spend the rest of the movie spittin' string theory, to me he is the crazy old guy bitten by a bee forever. he actually kinda reminds me of a guy in a similar role in vigo's l'atalante.

Casablanca is silly as all-get-out, but I voted with my heart. Casablanca it is. I give a lot of credit to Claude Raines for this triumph.

As star vehicle and excuse for one-liners, THAHN has never entertained me as much as other Hawks movies in the same vein; it's agreeably minor.

Fans of Claude Rains should check out a little-known David Lean movie called The Passionate Friends in which he plays a variant of his Notorious cuckold, only this time his rival is Trevor Howard and he makes more of an effort to stick up for himself.

Had a long argumenet with a buddy yesterday with a Hawks-besotted buddy; I insisted that Cukor, Hathaway, Curtiz made as many good (and bad) films as Hawks. As much as I love about seven or eight of his movies, I'm kinda tired of the Hawks love, to be honest.

the really great hawks movie that no one talks about is the original 'scarface.' it's also the meanest and most atypical of his movies: still kind of bracingly harsh and violent, and not a wisecracking, boyish dame or lovable band of misfit professionals in sight.

next he'll be calling Verigo unbelievable and silly, which will put me in a slowly-I-turn lather.

I prefer romantic desperation to sassy seductions, so I don't think there's anything in the Hawks movie like Bergman balling her fist after she says "Kiss me as if it were the last time" to Bogart in Paris. Also, the Marseillaise scene makes me cry every time, and I won't even stand for The Star-Spangled Banner.

I think Hemingway made some joke about how there's almost nothing from his book in TH&HN. I would like to see it again, along with the fucking thousand other movies I'd like to rewatch. Does LJ know that Curtiz remade this movie in '50 w/ John Garfield?

I said upthread that I think Casablanca's a little overrated, and I'll stand by that. One Curtiz film I think is underrated is Mildred Pierce. It was a long time before I watched it--always assumed it'd be really stagy and drippy--and when I finally did, I was surprised by its weirdness, how it's much more of a noir than the soap opera I was expecting, and how artful the camerawork is.

I don't how you measure such things, by my sense is that Mildred Pierce is underrated--that what's great about has been overwhelmed by Crawford's persona, and that it's been reduced to caricature by things like the Carol Burnett parody (which I don't remember, but I'm sure it's great).

has anyone actually read the hemingway novel 'to have and have not'? is it anything like the movie?

It has been many years, but iirc this was kind of his attempt to hack out a crime novel to a) make some quick money and perhaps b) show his hardboiled imitators how it was really done. It doesn't come off as a sustained narrative, maybe because it was written as short stories for magazines. It is much wilder than the movie, very violent and macho -- not as tough as Hammett, but a good imitation of the imitators. All the World War II stuff in the movie is Hollywood, not Hemingway.

I've picked it up a few times to re-read, but the creepy 30's racism keeps putting me off.

this is one of the best bits

THAHN is not ALL about sassy seduction - the main love-story is underplayed slightly (the kisses are passionate but fleeting) and the seduction stands for something grander and more escapist about grasping the moment. Plus, when the French couple come in later, injured and tired and deadly serious, there's grit and worry all right, just that it doesn't dominate the mood - it places bogart'n'bacall's happy-go-lucky shenanigans in perspective and gives the picture a more rounded feel

Did not know about the Curtiz remake. Probably owe it a watch now.
