Laguna Art Museum curator of historical art Janet Blake introduces The Breaking Point. The 1950 film noir stars Humphrey Bogart, John Garfield, and Patricia Neal, and is adapted from Ernest Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not.
With scenes filmed in Newport Beach and Balboa Harbor, The Breaking Point tells the story of 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, he entertains the criminal propositions of a sleazy lawyer, as well as the playful come-ons of a cheeky blonde, making a series of compromises that stretch his morality—and his marriage—further than he’ll admit
