Key Largo
First screened in July 1999 / Most recently screened in February 2016
Director: John Huston. Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Gomez, Claire Trevor, Marc Lawrence, Harry Lewis, Dan Seymour, William Haade, John Rodney, Monte Blue. Screenplay: Richard Brooks and John Huston (based on the play by Maxwell Anderson).

Twitter Capsule: Freund photography its greatest asset, and even that's often overdone. Huston awkwardly mounts a stagy Anderson script.

VOR:   Plenty of trustworthy people see more value here than I do, though I'm hardly alone in feeling underwhelmed. Strain in multiple directions at least reflects some drive.
