Harry Morgan is an expatriate fishing boat captain living in Martinique, which is controlled by the French Vichy government, which of course at the time supported [[ThoseWackyNazis the Nazis]]. He and his [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]] partner Eddie (Walter Brennan) take an American businessman named Johnson out fishing, and are unsuccessful, due to Johnson's poor ability. When they get back to the hotel they're staying at, Johnson promises to pay Harry the money he owes him the next morning, when he gets to go to the bank. At the hotel, the owner, Frenchy (Marcel Dalio) tells Harry some friends of his want to hire him, but knowing it's part of the resistance movement Frenchy belongs to, Harry turns him down, even when Frenchy's friends approach him. Also at the hotel, Harry ends up meeting Marie (Bacall), another expatriate, and they immediately become attracted to one another. She also ends up stealing Johnson's wallet, which is how Harry finds out Johnson actually had enough money in traveler's checks to pay him, but was planning to skip town. When Harry confronts him, Johnson sheepishly starts to sign over the traveler's checks when a shootout happens between Frenchy's friends and the police. Two of Frenchy's friends escape, but the others are killed, and Johnson is also caught in the crossfire and killed. Captain Renard (Dan Seymour), the head Gestapo in the area, brings Harry and Marie in for questioning; he's satisfied for the moment they had nothing to do with the resistance men, but insists on taking Harry's passport and his money, even the money Harry had taken from Johnson (since he died before signing the checks).

This was the first of four movies to co-star Bogart and Bacall, and it's on this film the two fell in love in real life. It's also based on a novel by ErnestHemingway, though he didn't think much of it, and actually bet Hawks he couldn't make a movie from it. It turned out to be a big hit with both critics and audiences, and is well regarded today.

* InNameOnly: The film is based on an Ernest Hemingway novel, but Hawks (and [[ExecutiveMeddling Warner Bros.]]) changed so much of it that it's virtually unrecognisable from its source.
