The entire pre-knife part of the film is shot from a Bogart's-eye-view, with us seeing the fugitive for the first time as he starts to recuperate from the operation in the apartment of a sympathetic young artist (played by Bacall) for whom he soon finds affection. But what he's really after is revenge. Key Largo Frank visits a rundown hotel run by crippled James Temple and his daughter-in-law Nora, widow of Frank's friend from the war. The hotel has been taken over by Johnny Rocco and his gang. Frank is indifferent at first but Rocco's treatment of his alcoholic mistress Gaye and his murder of two Indians convinces Frank that Rocco must be stopped. His only chance comes when Rocco forces Frank to pilot the gang's boat toward Cuba.
