Re: RARA-AVIS: To Have and Have Not

Date: 15 Mar 2002

As films go, I prefer To Have and Have Not over Casablanca, recognizing that the former was an attempt to capitalize on the latter. The Bogie/Bacall thing that was going on behind the scenes is evident onscreen and adds weight to the terrific banter.

Although it takes its time getting to its point, my favorite Hem is The Sun Also Rises. This guy who's had his dick blown off in the war in love with a woman who's just gotta have it. From a character standpoint, what's more tragic than that?
