Lazy Sunday Service

I'm reading To Have and Have Not at present.  The dialogue and demeanour of the lead character and the general atmosphere bought to mind Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca.  So I looked up the movie of the book to discover that Bogart played Harry Morgan in the movie.  Which was kind of uncanny.  Just about everything else about the movie, however, seems to bear little resemblence to the book - the plot has been reframed into a Second World War drama concerning smuggling a Free French resistance leader and his wife to Martinique rather than smuggling contraband between Cuba and Key West in the prohibition era.

Since I didn't get round to do doing a similar post last week, below is a summary of two week's worth of posts.
