Synopsis: World War II. On the Caribbean island of Martinique, Harry Morgan (Bogart) captains a charter boat and maintains a policy of strict neutrality toward the war and Vichy France, which controls the island. But everything changes when Morgan meets young, American cabaret singer Marie Browning (Bacall) and a fugitive leader of the French Resistance who both need a way off the island.
AroView: In the upper-bracket of Bogart films, this first time match-up with Lauren Bacall still sets the screen alight. Adapted from the Hemingway novel and transposed to French/Vichy Martinique, Humphrey scowls as a cynical boat operator who gets sucked into Resistance activities.
