So be­gan Hol­ly­wood’s great­est ro­mance

Warn­ers wanted an­other from this tale of World War Two in­trigue in ex­otic Mar­tinique – and found the per­fect foil to Humphrey Bog­art in 19-year-old New York model Betty Ba­call. Vir­tu­ally un­known in Hol­ly­wood, she was spot­ted on the cover of mag­a­zine by the wife of the film’s di­rec­tor, Howard Hawks. Her name was changed to Lau­ren, she was whisked off her feet in real life by her co-star, and the rest, as they say, is movie

his­tory. Dir: Howard Hawks 1944, PG, 120min
