Key Largo ★★★½ 1948
WWII vet Bogart travels to the run-down Florida hotel owned by Barrymore and Bacall who are, respectively, the father and widow of a war buddy. Bogart notes the other guests are of a decidedly criminal bent, but as a hurricane threatens, no one can leave. One-time mob kingpin Robinson lords it over the others while Bogart keeps his usual cynical cool. Trevor, who plays Robinson's alcoholic ex-singer moll, deservedly won an Oscar for her role. Based on a play by Maxwell Anderson. 101m/B VHS, DVD . Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Claire Trevor, Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Gomez, Dan Seymour; D: John Huston; W: Richard Brooks, John Huston; C: Karl Freund; M: Max Steiner. Oscars ‘48: Support. Actress (Trevor).
