Annotation

On the Hemingway-Humphrey Bogart connection, suggesting that Bogart not only acted the part of the tough guy Hemingway hero (particularly in the character of Rick Blaine of Casablanca) but also approximated the Hemingway persona in his personal life. Comments on their shared military experience, politics, and affinity for drinking and speculates on the influence A Farewell to Arms had on speeches appearing in Casablanca. Concludes with an analysis of the film’s flaws and a brief description of the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League.
