    Description

    To Have and Have Not (Warner Brothers, 1944). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B. While this would have been an outstanding movie based on the strength of Humphrey Bogart's performance alone, it was made legendary by the addition of a smoldering hot Lauren Bacall, making her film debut. The incredible chemistry between Bogie and Bacall was real; the couple fell in love while filming and were married shortly afterward. The famous "You know how to whistle" scene was written by director Howard Hawks as a screen test for Bacall. Her performance was so strong that Hawks asked scenarist William Faulkner to work it into his script. The film remains a high point in the careers of both Bogart and Bacall. Offered here is a lovely half sheet. It had several edge tears in the borders, a corner chip in the top right, small chips in the left border, a larger chip in the right border, and a corner crease in the top left. Professional restoration has admirably addressed these minor issues, returning a crisp, clean appearance to this highly attractive and desirable piece. Fine- on Linen.
