Shot Behind the Shot: Key Largo (1948)

Behind the scenes of Key Largo

A set-up on John Huston’s 1948 noir Key Largo for a scene in which a centenarian Native American woman bums a cigarette off Humphrey Bogart’s vagabond ex-army captain. The film marked the final of four pairings of Bogart and wife Lauren Bacall.

Released the same year as Huston and Bogart’s Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Key Largo finds Bogart and gangster Edward G. Robinson squaring off in a Florida hotel besieged by a hurricane.
