So … “To Have and Have Not” is not in the public domain?!

It was made in 1944, for God’s sakes.

I’d love to find and share a free link to the whole movie, but MGM still holds the rights?  You have to pay for it over at Amazon.  :-/
Anyway, I STRONGLY recommend this first (and probably the best) film starring Lauren Bacall.  It’s a classic — based on a short story by Ernest Hemingway and adapted (some say quite liberally) by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman.
We’ll always love you, Slim.  Every guy who sees the movie wishes he could be Steve.  But for some reason, I ALWAYS saw myself as Cricket, the piano player.  Never sure why.
