To Have And Have Not - Airs Dec 25th

To Have And Have Not by Ernest Hemingway 
The story goes that Howard Hawks told Ernest Hemingway he could make a movie of the author's least work, and Hemingway gave him the rights to "To Have and Have Not". We'll hear a special hour-long radio adaption of that script. It is the story is of a skipper for hire who reluctantly agrees to help the French Resistance while falling for a pretty petty thief. Our play was originally broadcast on Lux Radio theater in 1946 with Christmas-baby Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall reprising their screen roles.
