to have and to have not

It seems impossible, but Lauren Bacall was only 19 when she made her film debut opposite Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not, a Casablanca-like film based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway. Bacall turns in a fabulous performance as an American stranded in Martinique during WW1. She steals the show from the hard-bitten Bogey with lines like “You do know how to whistle, Steve? Just put your lips together and blow.” [us, 1944]
