|Michael Curtiz Director||previously directed Bright Leaf|
An honest boat captain finds himself strapped for cash and gets pulled into an escalating string of shady business deals which could cost him and his family their lives.
Based on the Hemingway novel 'To Have and Have Not', which was first made into a film starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in 1944. The same novel was later adapted twice more, into 'Wetbacks' (1956) and 'The Gun Runners' (1958). Ironically, Hemingway himself considered it one of his worst books.
