To Have and Have Not (Warner Bros., 1944). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.75" X 41"). Cinema history was made with this film noir classic. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall met and fell in love while making this Howard Hawks directed film and every bit of their chemistry shows on screen. In this Ernest Hemingway based adventure, Bogart operates a charter boat in WWII Martinique where he runs into a sultry pickpocket (Bacall) and French resistance fighters. Bacall sings "How Little We Know" by Johnny Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael, who has a small role as the piano player. This avidly collected one sheet has been professionally restored to address fold wear and some separation, misfolds, pinholes, as well as small tears and chips. There is partial airbrushing in the borders and a few post-restoration creases.
