In a memorable story, Ernest Hemingway’s unforgettable story, “To Have,” Warner Brothers finally held that fairy tale and socked for a four-digit hit in a movie. Yesterday, he published “The Breaking Point” from Strand. The character, color, and cynicism of Mr. Hemingway’s lean and hungry story is completed in this realistic picture, and John Garfield is in the top rankings.
Warners, if you’ve seen the first wave of this thread for six years, at least in the lead roles of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, you have not seen the Hemingway story from a few thousand words, an altered conspiracy involving Vichy policy would be an intruder. The last chapter in the legendary “Key Largo” was nothing more than a short reminder of the hard work Hemingway wrote.
