Garfield Noir The Breaking Point (1950) Out on DVD

The Warner Archive has released on DVD for the first time a film adaptation of the Ernest Hemingway novel, The Breaking Point (1950)

The Warner Archive has released on DVD for the first time a film adaptation of  the Ernest Hemingway novel, The Breaking Point (1950), a great John Garfield noir directed by Michael Curtiz, and to my mind infinitely superior to  Howard Kawk’s over-rated adaptation To Have and Have Not (1944).

One thought on “Garfield Noir The Breaking Point (1950) Out on DVD”

  1. Tony: I have not seen this film to date, but will be ordering it over the weekend in large measure because of your stellar recommendation. Your long held regard for John Garfield is duly noted, and it’s rare that a Curtiz feature isn’t worth investigating. Warner Archives has been resurrecting a plethora of classic films, and it’s great to see that this one has been remastered! The past two weeks has also seen the release of a Jean Renoir film noir and TORTILLA FLAT, based on Steinbeck.

    I happen to be one of those who agrees that TO HAVE OR HAVE NOT is vastly overrated. I saw it months ago at a local movie palace and readily reached that conclusion!
