To Have and Have Not (1944) is a thriller romance war adventure film directed by Howard Hawks and starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall that is nominally based on the novel To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway. — Wikipedia

Carmichael has the role of Cricket, the piano player in a hotel bar band, a combo with two guitarists (one playing banjo in Hong Kong Blues), a bass player, a drummer/percussionist, and a fiddler. The band provides accompaniment for three songs:

  • clip 1: Hoagy Carmichael and Lauren Bacall sing Am I Blue
  • clip 2: Bacall sings How Little We Know
  • clip 3: Hoagy sings Hong Kong Blues

    When Johnson was shot dead, what instrumental song did Cricket play when Bogart told him to stop? It’s a sad familiar thing. Hoagy Carmichael was sitting at the piano in To Have And Have Not.
