Key Largo

( 7 )

Overview

Richard Brooks and John Huston's screenplay for Huston's Key Largo eschews the lofty blank verse of Maxwell Anderson's original play, concentrating instead on the simmering tensions among the many characters. Humphrey Bogart plays Frank McCloud, an embittered war veteran who travels to Key Largo in Florida, there to meet Nora Temple Lauren Bacall, the wife of his deceased war buddy. Arriving at a tumbledown hotel managed by Nora's father-in-law James Temple Lionel Barrymore, McCloud discovers that the ...

Sealed in manufacturer's shrink wrap~Fast shipping.. John Huston's Key Largo shares crucial similarities and differences with Archie Mayo's The Petrified Forest, also starring ... Humphrey Bogart but made 12 years earlier. The two plots are similar -- a group of people held hostage in a remote locale by a gangster on the run -- but the differences between the two movies, and Bogart's roles in them, reflect changes in the world and in perceptions of evil and how to deal with it. Where The Petrified Forest was steeped in romantic notions of self-sacrifice, rationalizing the loss of life in World War I, Key Largo implicitly questioned the right of any moral person to withdraw from the responsibility of taking moral action -- and it even questioned the wisdom of self-sacrifice. The difference between the two movies was the intercession of World War II, in which society encountered the most monumental evil on as large a scale as was imaginable. Made in the wake of the war, with the Cold War and the Red Scare just getting rolling, Key Largo was almost a call to arms to any decent people watching that they were too important to withdraw from battlefields old or new, and that there were still battles to be fought that were worth fighting, as well as winning.

Overview

Richard Brooks and John Huston's screenplay for Huston's Key Largo eschews the lofty blank verse of Maxwell Anderson's original play, concentrating instead on the simmering tensions among the many characters. Humphrey Bogart plays Frank McCloud, an embittered war veteran who travels to Key Largo in Florida, there to meet Nora Temple Lauren Bacall, the wife of his deceased war buddy. Arriving at a tumbledown hotel managed by Nora's father-in-law James Temple Lionel Barrymore, McCloud discovers that the establishment has been taken over by exiled gangster Johnny Rocco Edward G. Robinson and what's left of his mob. Also in attendance is Gaye Dawn Claire Trevor, Rocco's alcoholic girlfriend. While the others bristle at the thought of being held at bay by the gangsters, the disillusioned McCloud refuses to get involved: "One Rocco more or less isn't worth dying for." As he awaits a contact who is bringing him enough money to skip the country, Rocco is responsible for the deaths of a deputy sheriff and two local Indian youth. Unwilling to take a stand before these tragedies, McCloud finally comes to realize that Rocco is a beast who must be destroyed. To save the others from harm, McCloud agrees to pilot Rocco's boat to Cuba through the storm-tossed waters. Just before McCloud leaves, Gaye Dawn slips him a gun -- which leads to the deadly final confrontation between McCloud and Rocco. His resolve to go on living renewed by this cathartic experience, McCloud heads back to Nora, with whom he's fallen in love. Claire Trevor's virtuoso performance as a besotted ex-nightclub singer won her an Academy Award -- as predicted by her admiring fellow actors, who watched her go through several very difficult scenes in long, uninterrupted takes. While Key Largo sags a bit during its more verbose passages, on a visual level the film is one of the best and most evocative examples of the "film noir" school.

All Movie Guide - Bruce Eder
John Huston's Key Largo shares crucial similarities and differences with Archie Mayo's The Petrified Forest, also starring Humphrey Bogart but made 12 years earlier. The two plots are similar -- a group of people held hostage in a remote locale by a gangster on the run -- but the differences between the two movies, and Bogart's roles in them, reflect changes in the world and in perceptions of evil and how to deal with it. Where The Petrified Forest was steeped in romantic notions of self-sacrifice, rationalizing the loss of life in World War I, Key Largo implicitly questioned the right of any moral person to withdraw from the responsibility of taking moral action -- and it even questioned the wisdom of self-sacrifice. The Petrified Forest's dreamy poet (Leslie Howard) nobly sacrifices himself to see the capture of the deadly sociopath played by Bogart. In Key Largo, Bogart plays embittered, disillusioned war veteran Frank McCloud, who starts the film with nothing to live for and discovers, in the course of fighting and killing old-time gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson), that there is a reason to remain engaged with the world and with his fellow human beings. The difference between the two movies was the intercession of World War II, in which society encountered the most monumental evil on as large a scale as was imaginable. Made in the wake of the war, with the Cold War and the Red Scare just getting rolling, Key Largo was almost a call to arms to any decent people watching that they were too important to withdraw from battlefields old or new, and that there were still battles to be fought that were worth fighting, as well as winning.

    Great Bogart And Robinson Film From The Late '40s.

    I first came across this '40s classic on a PBS affiliate over half a year ago. I thought that it looked really great and really held my attention, so much so that I just had to obtain and own a copy of this movie. Prior to catching this, I'd never seen any Humphrey Bogart nor Edward G. Robinson flick, but now I'm very glad I discovered what I'd been missing all this time as long as I had and wish I had found it sooner. At a time when it seems that much of the mainstream movie industry is gradually on the decline and has been for the first ten years of the past decade/this century, this gem from decades past is a well, warm welcome, and a breath of fresh air. If none of y'all who may be reading this haven't checked it out, then I ask y'all to do so please. Who knew I'd end up digging a feature from the first half of the last century? Just give the films from before the second half a chance, because y'all may never know for sure just what you might find and get into viewing. Frank McCloud (Bogart) is on a getaway to one of the Florida Keys (Largo) and visits a hotel. While there, he meets with a fellow army man's widow, Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall) and her father, James (Lionel Barrymore). But then later, Frank and some other people's stay is interrupted when a gangster named Johnny Rocco (Robinson) and his thugs decide to crash the place, and take over, holding the visitors hostage. Now somebody has to figure out a way to escape this peril. Will Frank and the other heroes find a way to get out of this without any more trouble? It has suspense that will keep y'all engrossed and on the edge of your seats. I agree with someone on another site that this is one of the best pics with Bogart and Robinson that were overlooked/underrated, and might I add of the decade, or even last century. Now it's since been added to my favorites list. I love it, just buy and view to discern for yourselves. Recommended.

    Nasty Doings in the Florida Keys

    All-star cast for this drama taken from Maxwell Anderson play. Edward G. Robinson plays on-the-run gangster Johhny Rocco, who's trying to leave the US to get to Cuba. Bogart's world weary war veteran is one of the people held hostage by Rocco in the wake of a storm in the Florida Keys. Lionel Barrymore, Claire Trevor and Bogart's real-life wife, Lauren Bacall, round out the cast.

    Excellent!

    This film stars Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore and Claire Trevor as a group of people who are taken hostage by a pack of criminals at a hotel in the Florida Keys as a hurricane ravages on. But the hurricane outside is nothing compared to the human drama unfolding inside the hotel. Edward G. Robinson stars as the leader of the criminal group. Don¿t miss this one!
