Four classic movies starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. In 'The Big Sleep' (1946), Private Detective Philip Marlowe (Bogart) agrees to rid a wealthy family of a blackmailer who is threatening the younger daughter, but the man is killed before he can act. Drawn nevertheless into the Sternwood family's problems (not least because of his attraction to the elder sister, played by Bacall), Marlowe uncovers drugs, murder and more blackmail. In 'To Have and Have Not' (1945), Bogart plays Harry 'Steve' Morgan, an American running a fishing boat on Martinique, reluctant to get involved with the wartime battles between the Nazis and the Free French Movement. However, his loner stance is challenged when he meets, and falls in love with, the precocious Marie (Bacall). In 'Key Largo' (1948), Frank McCloud (Bogart) is staying at a run-down hotel on an isolated Florida island, Key Largo, when it is taken over by a gangster (Edward G. Robertson) and his entourage, on the run from deportation. An impending hurricane gives McCloud the opportunity and courage to take things in hand and lure the gangster to his death. In 'Dark Passage' (1947) Bogart stars as a man who is wrongly convicted of murdering his wife. He escapes from prison and takes refuge with a beautiful young woman (Bacall) while he has his face altered by plastic surgery.
