His friend’s widow, Nora Temple, and wheelchair bound father, James Temple manage the hotel and receive him warmly, but the three of them soon find themselves virtual prisoners when the hotel is taken over by a mob of gangsters led by Johnny Rocco who hole up there to await the passing of a hurricane. Mr. Temple strongly reviles Rocco but due to his infirmities can only confront him verbally. Having become disillusioned by the violence of war, Frank is reluctant to act, but Rocco’s demeaning treatment of his alcoholic moll, Gaye Dawn, and his complicity in the deaths of some innocent Seminole Indians and a deputy sheriff start to motivate McCloud to overcome his Hamlet-like inaction.
Plot: A hurricane swells outside, but it’s nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco holes up – and holds at gunpoint hotel owner James Temple, his widowed daughter-in-law Nora, and ex-GI Frank McCloud.

A brilliant John Huston thriller with an unbeatable cast: Bogart, Bacall, Robinson, and Barrymore! It’s neither amazing nor a secret as to why this classic noir will never get stale.
A storm is about to break over Key Largo, but that’s nothing compared to the emotional eruptions going on inside James Temple’s run-down hotel, where the crippled old proprietor, his daughter-in-law, and a disillusioned ex-GI are being held up by the notorious gangster, Johnny Rocco. What does he want? Well, to put in his own words, he wants “more”. And his temper, as well as his gun, could very well go off at any given moment. Mr. Temple, you might want to stop antagonizing him. This brilliant, tense noir is, in my opinion, one of master director John Huston’s best. Considered by some to be one of the lesser Bogie/Bacall pairings, it’s still a superb film that you don’t want to miss. Some of the movie’s best moments are (1) Claire Trevor, as Rocco’s alcoholic moll, desperately singing for the sadistic Rocco and hoping to be rewarded with a drink, and (2) the verbal battles between the arrogant Rocco, and the wonderfully feisty Mr. Temple.
Would I recommend? Yes, yes, and…yes.
Three screen legends: Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Lauren Bacall
See the screen legends of Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson and Lauren Bacall in one film, not to mention great Lionel Barrymore and Claire Trevor.
The film is directed like a stage play with basically one set, the hotel on Key Largo, but it’s not static or dull in the least.
Robinson’s villain gangster Johnny Rocco is one of his most memorable performances and he steals the movie.
Robinson and his “boys” are hold-up in a hotel on Key Largo awaiting the arrival of some business associates when a hurricane hits. The hotel is owned by Barrymore and his daughter Bacall. Bogart is there to give Barrymore some possessions of his son who was killed in the war.
Bogart plays a returning WWII veteran and Bacall is the daughter of the hotel owner Barrymore. The film isn’t a love story but you can still tell that Bacall adores Bogie and their chemistry is obvious. Bacall is lighted beautifully to show off her outstanding facial features.
A top rate drama full of crackling dialog and superb performances from everyone.
