Three innocent people trapped by a storm... and a killer!
A hurricane swells outside, but its nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) holes up -- and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall), her invalid father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) and ex-GI Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart). McClouds the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco. But the postwar worlds realities may have taken all the fight out of him. John Huston co-wrote and compellingly directs this film of Maxwell Andersons 1939 play with a searing Academy Award -winning* performance by Claire Trevor as Roccos gold-hearted, boozy moll. In Hustons hands, it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic.
