This three DVD set of films featuring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is the cream rising to the top. Each film is fabulous by itself, and watched together over a short period of time will really give any film lover a sense of why so many people love Bogie and Bacall. It is also an excellent example of two great directors in their prime. Howard Hawks, who has never fully received the credit he deserves fo the many film masterpieces for which he was responsible, helmed two of these films, and John Huston directed the other. This DVD set includes both the first and last of the couple's films together.

First, we have Hawks' "The Big Sleep." It is one of the most unique adaptations of a detective novel ever brought to the screen. Watching this film is one of the true joys of being a film buff. This is extraordinary entertainment that grabs your attention quickly and keeps it until the final shot. It is exciting and engaging, and a favorite of all detective film fans.

Director Howard Hawks turned Raymond Chandler's most popular story into an absolutely mesmerizing celluloid masterpiece. Raymond Chandler's complex novel was adapted for the screen by William Faulkner. We may never know for sure who committed one of the murders in this blurry crime noir, but like all Hawks' films, it is so incredibly entertaining we really don't care. It is full of sharp dialog and dreamy images much like the aftereffects of a drinking binge.

The story itself moves at a terrific clip, and there is so much going on you might get lost if you blink. Humphry Bogart is Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, and from the moment he arrives to talk to General Sternwood and gets mixed up with his daughters this is a film classic.

1944's TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT is an interesting adaptation of the Ernest Hemingway novel. The film takes the main character, Harry Morgan played by Humphrey Bogart, and resets it into WWII in French Martinique where Bogart and his sidekick Walter Brennan get involved smuggling refugees to freedom. TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT was directed by Howard Hawks. It also teams Bogart with Lauren Bacall and there are endless snippets of very interesting dialogue and banter. Since Martinique was under the control of the Vichy government, Nazi henchmen are lurking about. It is an interesting film and great piece of film noir set in the Caribbean.

1948's KEY LARGO directed by John Huston is one of my favorite film noir classics. The element of reality and intimacy between the characters makes me return to this film time and time again. Humphrey Bogart is ex-Major Frank McCloud and he travels to Key Largo to a hotel where the family of George Temple, a friend from the Army who had served under him and was killed in the Italian campaign in WWII reside. Lauren Bacall plays George Temple's widow and Temple's father is the wheelchair bound Lionel Barrymore. Eventually other guests awaiting the arrival of gangster Johnny Rocco played by Edward G. Robinson take them hostage all while a hurricane approaches them.

What is important here is tension that builds and perhaps the lethargy in Humphrey Bogart's character and performance that builds in some sort of odd psychological battle that cuts to the bone and heart armed with witty dialogue. This is a great film. It is film noir, but it has a somewhat different look to it. The darkness is within its characters' yearnings and needs, their faults and weaknesses. On the outside it is bright and looming as the storm approaches, but to what end.
