Hemingway's Classic Novel About Smuggling, Intrigue, and Love
To Have and Have Not is the dramatic story of Harry Morgan, an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair.
Harshly realistic, yet with one of the most subtle and moving relationships in the Hemingway oeuvre, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.

I agree. The movie is really good but the book is in an entirely different universe. Is Puzo's " The Godfather" not as good as, if not better than its movie?. The story is the writer's to tell, but the the director's to interpret. The burden to succeed is greater for the director. But then there are the exceptions where a movie director succeeds in leaping into that "other wordly" experience. Curtiz was able to do so but a lot of the story had to be dropped and reconfigured for film.

Unexpectedly original in a unique way that cannot justify not watching the film.

The rare case where the film is much better than the book.
