Eddie G. Robinson was by far the best villian of the 40s. Really liked his performance.

Bogart was a cool cat anyway...

Robinson did an excellent job. I do have an affinity for the villain in a film. Of course, Bogie was superb, as usual. Different seeing him "bite his tongue," but he played the part very well.

Yeah, the storm is pretty rough, but Humphrey Bogart'll kick your ass on a boat if you turn your back.

In Key Largo, Humphrey Bogart is an old army buddy of a Florida hotel owner's son. When he comes for a visit, he's disturbed to find gangsters have taken over the place, and worse, a hurricane is coming that will keep the goodies and baddies together in a confined space. For a movie with Bogie and Bacall, you'd think this would be their vehicle, but no, it's really an ensemble piece that betrays its theater roots. Edward G. Robinson as the lead mobster is particular good, and I can't argue with Claire Trevor's Oscar for Best supporting actress as the alcoholic moll. Every character, even the smaller parts, has personality. Bogie has fewer lines than usual, his war hero more silent than many of his famous parts, but he does a lot with relatively little, using his persona to project both hard man ruthlessness and empathy. The real star, however, is director John Huston who discretely but surely adds a lot of interesting flourishes - the boat pull courtship, Robinson's Universal monster introduction, the lush with the fish halo... And that's a very good looking hurricane too.
