  • All great actors but....

    All great actors in Key Largo but the one that really stands out and is such a natural is Eddie Robinson. The scene where he is getting a shave while delivering his lines has got to be one of his best scenes he has done since being in the movies. So natural ..so confident...so convincing..so arrogantly evil. He's the man!

    A terrific adaptation of Maxwell Anderson's thrilling play. With an ensemble that includes Bogie & Bacall, Barrymore & Robinson doing great work, the only performer to get award recognition was Trevor, who won the Oscar as Robinson's drunken moll. Tense story is engaging with Robinson as a gangster who holds Bogart, Bacall & Barrymore captive during a tropical storm. A great, entertainmenting film noir from director Huston. I give it a 4.5/5.

    Great film!

  • A true B. and B. classic.

    A classic film noir and the perfect vehicle for Bogart and Bacall. The supporting cast could not have been better chosen. Anyone who "colorized" this should be locked in a room and have the room thrown away.

    One of the greatest that should be seen often!Sad about the Osceola brothers,but at least the good guys are rueful.Thought Johnny Rocco was like Luciano expecting the USA to pin a medal on him after WWII.No one remembers you after saving their hides,convenient memory loss,but Lucky was a law breaker.

    I WOULD LIKE TO WATCH THIS MOVIE IN BLACK & WHITE INSTEAD OF THE WASHED-OUT COLOR PRINT THAT I HAVE NOW. WHEN IS TCM SHOWING THIS MOVIE IN B&W?

  • Rocco!

    As captive crime dramas go this one is a cut above the rest, thanks mainly to Edward G. Robinson's villainous performance.

  • A Masterpiece from Huston

    Eddie G. rocks this film! Especially in his close up while he's getting a shave. In my opinion this was his and Clare Trevor's film, with Bogart and Bacall lending name recognition and stepping back and toning down a degree or two. Rarely do you see a moment of self-realization come over a character as you do when CT sings about "that sweet man" who is "mean as can be." This is a regular favorite of ours. Never get tired of it.

    • 9/8/10

    This is one of my all time fav. However it only deserves a 4-1/2 rating because of Lauran Becalls lack of acting ability.

  • Bogie and Bacall Swan Song.

    • Frank Harris Horn
    • 7/20/10

    Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's fourth and final picture together has them pitted up against Edward G. Robinson in Oscar-winning director, John Huston's suspenseful gangster drama based on Maxwell Anderson's play. Bogie stars as Frank McCloud, a returning war veteran, who encounters a tough gangster (Robinson), whose mob is holding a number of people hostage at a Florida Key hotel as a tropical storm is approaching the island. Huston directs a dandy cast and Max Steiner's musical score is equally suspenseful. Co-star Claire Trevor gives an Oscar-winning performance as Robinson's boozy gun moll. Also starring Lionel Barrymore, Marc Lawrence, Thomas Gomez, Harry Lewis, Monte Blue, John Rodney, Jay Silverheels, Alberto Morin, Felipa Gomez & Pat Flaherty.

  • A Collection Must!

    Just added Key Largo to my personal DVD library collection. I really enjoy this movie and don't know why I didn't purchase it sooner. Thanks TCM.

  • Thrice Slapped!

    • 12/3/09

    I got my children to watch this terrific Bogart movie, no easy task with ages 9-18 but when Bogart is slapped not twice but thrice, and he takes it!, my children were instant fans.

  • Johnny Rocco meanest bad guy.

    • BiketoWork1
    • 10/8/09

    The scene in which Johnny Rocco goes back on his promise and refuses to give Claire Trevor a drink after she sings, is very powerful. Johnny Rocco is the meanest villian in the movies.

  • Three Great Stars - One Awesome Film

    • 6/5/09

    "Key Largo" is a taut, edge-of-your seat film noir with three screen legends at the top of their game; Bogart as the cynical veteran, Bacall as the widow of his friend, and Robinson as tough-talking cigar-chomping gangster Johnny Rocco, maybe the best gangster portrayal in any film by any actor (except Cagney's Cody Jarrett in "White Heat"). Claire Trevor is also great in her Oscar-winning role as Rocco's boozing has-been diva girlfriend Gay Dawn, and Lionel Barrymore is very good in one of his later roles as the hotel owner and father of Bogie's friend killed in WW2.It seems that while Rocco is scared of nobody, the only thing that really spooks him is the hurricane itself and hearing about the devastation caused by a previous one. The Bogart character redeeems himself for his cynical attitude at the end, and remembers what he said about "cleansing the world of ancient evils" by taking a stand and killing Rocco and his henchmen, instead of running away and doing nothing.

    Claire Trevor's performance is among the greatest of all time. Excellent story, superb direction with an amazingly good cast. Edward G. Robinson is terrific as always. Great photography, outstanding atmosphere. A true classic.

  • What does Rocco want??

    • 1/7/09

    MORE!! Who better than Edward G.'s "Johnny Rocco" to be a symbol of the gratuitious greed evidenced by thedecades ('80s,'90s,&'00s) that followed?Bernie Madoff just took it to another level. As Bogie says in KL...he fought a war to rid the planet of this type of vermin. Johnny Rocco catching the hot slug at the end...Soldier! Soldier!...priceless.

  • GREAT!

    One of my favorite movies and definitely one of Bogart's best performances.

    Trevor's Gaye Dawn highlights Huston's star summit, with Freund's camera.
