This movie was the last of the four films that would feature the husband and wife duo of Bogart and Bacall. It’s also a film noir classic.
John Huston took home two Oscars for his work on this film. He also helped his father earn one. It’s a true classic with a complicated story to tell.
“I was born when she kissed me. I died when she left me. I lived a few weeks while she loved me.” – Humphrey Bogart as Dixon Steele
“I like to think of life as a limousine. Though we are all riding together, we must remember our places. There’s a front seat and a back seat and a window in between.” – John Williams as Thomas Fairchild
“I don’t mind if you don’t like my manners, I don’t like them myself. They are pretty bad. I grieve over them on long winter evenings.” – Humphrey Bogart as Philip Marlowe
“I don’t mind a reasonable amount of trouble.” – Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade
“Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.” – Humphrey Bogart as Rick
While Hepburn plays the refined and intelligent woman, Bogart plays the hard-living sailor.
