The 1944 film starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is coming to Blu-ray.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive will be releasing 'To Have and Have Not' on Blu-ray later this year.
Help the Free French? Not world-weary gunrunner Harry Morgan (Humphrey Bogart). But he changes his mind when a sultry siren-in-distress named Marie asks, "Anybody got a match?" That red-hot match is Bogart and 19-year-old first-time film actress Lauren Bacall. Full of intrigue and racy banter (including Bacall's legendary whistling instructions), this thriller excites further interest for what it has and has not. Cannily directed by Howard Hawks and smartly written by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman, it doesn't have much similarity to the Ernest Hemingway novel that inspired it. And it strongly resembles Casablanca: French resistance fighters, a piano-playing bluesman (Hoagy Carmichael) and a Martinique bar much like Rick's Cafe Americaine. But first and foremost, it showcases Bogart and Bacall, carrying on with a passion that smolders from the tips of their cigarettes clear through to their souls.
The release will feature a new master and supplements include: Vintage Merrie Melodies Short "Bacall to Arms" (Remastered in HD); "A Love Story: the Story of To Have and Have Not" featurette; Lux Radio Broadcast starring Bogart and Bacall; and Theatrical Trailer.
