Fishing boat captain Harry Morgan charters his boat. Due to strained finances, he is none too careful as to whom he does business with. Real trouble erupts when Harry hires out his boat to transport four men who turn out to be criminals on the lam from a racetrack heist.The Breaking Point is a 1950 American film noir directed by Michael Curtiz and the second film adaptation of the Ernest Hemingway novel To Have and Have Not. It stars John Garfield (in his second to last film role before his death) and Patricia Neal. The earlier 1944 film starred Humphrey Bogart in the male lead.The film has a stark film noir quality to the excellent B&W photography and builds to a quietly effective ending after the long shootout that ends the story, an ending that makes the viewer more aware of the consequences of Garfield’s stupid decision to conspire with gangsters who shoot his best friend. Michael Curtiz does a superior job of directing.More Details On Wikipedia.
