This 1944 American film was directed by Howard Hawks, and remains one of the most important and memorable of Humphrey Bogart's films. It was also co-star Lauren Bacall's screen debut, and from their opening scene together the couple lit up the screen with a powerful chemistry. They were married within a year, and lived happily until Bogart's death in 1957. At his funeral, Bacall placed a small gold whistle in the urn with Bogart's ashes, inscribed with the famous line from this film 'if you want anything just whistle'.
