A masterpiece of filmmaking by one of the best directors of all time, John Huston. Bogart is ideally cast as a world weary war veteran, visiting the widow and father of a man he served with. Robinson is the exiled gangster heading a small group of crooks who take them all hostage during a hurricane. Robinson is utterly despicable, monstrous, and sociopathic (as fits the character) and yet something of a coward. Claire Trevor deservedly won an Oscar for her role as the gangster's girl, a drunkard with a good heart nonetheless. Lionel Barrymore is sympathetic and likeable as the crippled father- a different status quo for the actor who seems more at home playing conniving and wicked men. Bogart and Bacall shine together. Huston keeps the tension building and building throughout, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats as the story goes along. This is the way movies should be made.

Loved the cast. Crotchety Lionel Barrymore always cracks me up -- I always hear the Underdog cartoon character Simon Bar Sinister. Edward G. was an exceptionally despicable little slimeball. Cowardly, too; sweating bullets over a little breeze (lol). The more I've seen Claire Trevor's performances, (e.g. "Born To Kill", "Murder, My Sweet"), the more impressed I am with her. The woman was gritty. And naturally, there's those two. The idyllic Hollywood romantic couple. Sorry, folks, can't resist a chorus: "We had it all... Just like Bogie and Bacall... Starring in our own late, late show... Sailin' away to Key Largo..." Awesome John Huston flick. Max Steiner's score, too. FIVE STARS.

This one of Bogat's best with a great cast. Edward G. is great as a has been ganster. Lauren Bacal is great in her part.( Bogart's real wife ) Something to look for the name of the boat Santana. That was the name of Bogart's production company

Very dramatic film, Edward G Robinson's gangster isn't even half-way lovable in this one! Only film where Bogart shoots Edward G , and not the other way around! Good stuff!

This movie is okay- I love Lauren Bacall's character, sort of little girlish (but great). Perfect ending.

Classic B&W. Some now silly FX, but by the standards of the 1940s, pretty good. Worth watching if only to see Claire Trevor's Oscar-winning performance.
