Last Monday we listened to a 1943 radio adaptation of Casablanca (click here to go back to that post), and as promised today we’re listening to another classic radio program starring Humphrey Bogart. Here he is with Lauren Bacall, reprising their screen roles in To Have and Have Not.
It’s pretty clear from yesterday’s post that I’m not a real movie guy (I mean film buff) but I do enjoy a good one from time to time. Last night we rented Casa de mi Padre, which I’d recommend if you like to laugh a lot when you’re watching a movie.
To Have and Have Not is only loosely based on Ernest Hemmingway’s novel, and is also one of several screenplays written or co-written by William Faulkner. It is sort of hard to imagine today, but at the time Faulkner took the job writing for MGM Studios where he worked with director Howard Hawks.
I couldn’t find a Looney Tune of this one.
