The Breaking Point

1950 Rated NR 1hr 37m

In Hollywood's second crack at Ernest Hemingway's To Have and Have Not. JOHN GARFIELD (The Postman Always Rings Twice) stars as Harry Morgan, an honest charter-boat captain who, facing hard times, takes on dangerous cargo to save his boat, support his family, and preserve his dignity. Left in the lurch by a freeloading passenger, Harry starts to entertain the criminal propositions of a sleazy lawyer (Harvey's WALLACE FORD), as well as the playful come-ons of a cheeky blonde (A Face in the Crowd's PATRICIA NEAL), making a series of compromises that stretch his morality--and his marriage farther than he'll admit.
