Humphrey Bogart plays Harry Morgan, owner-operator of charter boat in wartime Martinique. Morgan's right-hand man is Eddie (Walter Brennan), a garrulous alky whose pet question to anyone and everyone is "Ever get stung by a dead bee?" While in port, Harry is approached by Free French activist Gerard (Marcel Dalio), who wants to charter Harry's boat to smuggle in an important underground leader. Adopting his usual I-stick-my-neck-out-for-no-one stance, Morgan refuses. Later on, he starts up a

The movie is entertaining in its own right, and representative of the era in which it was produced, but, aside from the legendary interaction between Bogart and Lauren Bacall, there are only moderate reasons to recommend the film.
The scenes between Bogart and Bacall are so dazzlingly about attraction and sex that they encapsulate the whole magic of movies.
As the hard-boiled professional fisherman who gives his ample ingenuity to a cause, Mr. Bogart is almost as impressive as he was as Rick, the Casablanca host.
Has a slick of bestial sweat to it that promises that the explosion of really naughty stuff is looming.
[Bogey & Bacall's] onscreen chemistry is palpable, all but overshadowing the fictional back story that made Rick and Ilsa's dance in Casablanca so memorable.
A química entre Bogart e Bacall (numa estréia impressionante) é motivo suficiente para que este filme se mantenha vivo na memória dos amantes do Cinema.
The movie is basically a rip-off of "Casablanca," but it's got some marvelous dialogue and great intrigue.
...an intriguing, romantic, sometimes exciting, predictable but entertaining motion picture.
The film was Bacall's first movie and the project on which she and Bogart met. Their love scenes couldn't be any spicier.
Good Hawks opus.
colorful, believable, varied characters, a story that moves right along..., and dialogue that snaps right off the screen.
Director Howard Hawks made a bet with Ernest Hemingway that he could make a good movie out of his worst novel. I don't know who won or how much the bet was for, but my money is on Hawks.
