Key Largo

( 7 )

Overview

John Huston's Key Largo is a jewel of a film, and Warner Home Video has given it a Tiffany setting, at least as far as the transfer it has received for this DVD. You can see each diamond in Claire Trevor's necklace as she crosses a room in a medium shot, and the weave in the collar of Edward G. Robinson's shirt, all of which represents better resolution than any prior video edition of this movie. Adapted by Huston and co-screenwriter Richard Brooks from Maxwell Anderson's play, Key Largo is a top-flight thriller ...

Overview

John Huston's Key Largo is a jewel of a film, and Warner Home Video has given it a Tiffany setting, at least as far as the transfer it has received for this DVD. You can see each diamond in Claire Trevor's necklace as she crosses a room in a medium shot, and the weave in the collar of Edward G. Robinson's shirt, all of which represents better resolution than any prior video edition of this movie. Adapted by Huston and co-screenwriter Richard Brooks from Maxwell Anderson's play, Key Largo is a top-flight thriller and drama all in one, filled with performances that are perfect down to the merest flick of an eyelash. The story is actually a distant cousin to Bogart's breakthrough stage and film vehicle, The Petrified Forest -- a group of people are trapped in an isolate locale, held prisoner by a gang of criminals. The difference in Key Largo is that it has a post-World War II sensibility regarding sacrifice and responsibility in its central conflict, about what happens when decent people succumb to disillusionment and leave the world to the gangsters and thugs. The movie was one of Bogart's and Huston's best, and arguably represents the best work of Lionel Barrymore and Lauren Bacall, and also of silent film veteran Monte Blue. Indeed, the only "flaw" in this DVD lies in what could have been done with it. The film-to-video transfer is gorgeous, to be sure, and there is a short production history of the movie in the supplement, along with the movie's trailer, but one wishes that a narrative, perhaps by a top-flight scholar of John Huston's work, could have been recorded. Bacall is still around to talk, and Claire Trevor, who won an Oscar for her performance here as Robinson's disillusioned, alcoholic girlfriend, was available until her death in 2000. The opportunities were there, and unexplored, and it's not as though Bacall hasn't made herself available to projects such as this. The fact that it is broken down into 32 chapters is an indicator that someone cared about this release; one just wishes the format had been fully explored and exploited.

Editorial Reviews

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!
