At Sea With Betty And Bogie

This photo of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, posted on Film Noir Photos, reminds me of one of my favorite Old Time Radio programs, Bold Venture.  In that show, Bogey and Bacall played roles very similar to their film roles in To Have And Have Not.  Bogey runs a hotel and charter boat service out of Havana, and Bacall is his girl.
