The thing I love about this Key Largo scene is that nothing happens but you can feel all kinds of things waiting to. Okay, one thing happens at the end when Thomas Gomez answers the phone and lies about Lionel Barrymore and Lauren Bacall‘s whereabouts, but the rest is all premonitions — that feeling in the air when rain is about to hit. Sidenote: Two years after Key Largo opened in ’48, Harry Lewis, the flashy gangster with the idiot laugh, teamed with girlfriend Marilyn Friedman to open the first Hamburger Hamlet at the corner of Sunset and Hilldale. Initial investment was $3,500. HH grew into a chain of 24 locations, and was sold in ’87 for $29.2 million. Lewis died two and a half years ago at age 93.
