YMMV: To Have and Have Not

  • Adaptation Displacement: As mentioned, this is based on one of the (considered) lesser novels of Ernest Hemingway, and though the movie changes a lot of it, it's better remembered than the novel.
    • In 1950, there was a more faithful movie version called The Breaking Point, with John Garfield and Patricia Neal, that was well received, but isn't as well known today.
  • Memetic Mutation: "You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow."
    • Also, "Was you ever bit by a dead bee?"
