Daily film recommendation: 'Key Largo'

" Key Largo ", the fourth and final film pairing of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, is significantly different from their previous movies together. The film does have elements of noir, but neither actor plays their typical character, and, in fact, much of the movie's focus is on another character entirely.
