Screenwriters William Faulkner and Jules Furthman brought Hemmingway’s World War II adventure novel to the screen with scene after scene of now-legendary dialogue. Humphrey Bogart stars as a cynical skipper-for-hire who reluctantly agrees to transport a French Resistance leader and his wife to Martinique. The screen debut of Lauren Bacall (“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve?”) remains a superlative example of golden-age Hollywood craftsmanship. (100 min.)
