Three innocent people trapped by a storm--and a killer.

A hurricane swells outside, but it's nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo.There, sadistic mobster Jonny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) holes up--and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nore Temple (Lauren Bacall), her invalid father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) and ex-GI Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart).

McCloud's the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco.But the postwar world's realities may have taken all the fight out of him.John Huston co-wrote and compellingly directs this film of Maxwell Anderson's 1939 play with a searing Academy Award winning performance by Claire Trevor as Rocco's gold-hearted, boozy moll.In Huston's hands, it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic.
