Annotation

Murray examines director Howard Hawks’s flexibility in adapting To Have and Have Not for the big screen in 1944. Argues that despite Hawks’s dramatic reworking, the novel and film share deep connections in style and approach and concludes that the film can best be understood as the product of a series of systems (e.g. Warner Brothers picture, Hawks film, and Faulkner screenplay) outside of the novel.
