Am I Blue

Hoagy Carmichael and Lauren Bacall in Howard Hawks’ To Have and Have Not.

Below, another Hawks musical scene, Drum Boogie performed by Gene Krupa and Barbara Stanwyck in Ball of Fire.

More Hawks music: How Little We Know, by Carmichael and Bacall again in To Have and Have Not, Sob Sob Sister, by Bacall in The Big Sleep, and Ann Dvorak sings and plays in Scarface.

You can also find songs from A Song is Born, and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Rio Bravo too if you want, and Mancini’s Baby Elephant Walk tune from Hatari in versions good, bad and indifferent, but not in this post. I’m no completist.

Earlier, John Dog sings Lauren Bacall.

I just think Bacall is stunning.

I do love the way that scene is put together, a whole story implied in under two minutes, all of it unspoken.
