Key Largo will celebrate the 65th anniversary of the movie Key Largo with a film festival honoring the movie’s late star Humphrey Bogart.

Bogart was married to Lauren Bacall, who also starred in the movie. Their son Stephen Bogart is scheduled to headline several events at the Humphrey Bogart Film Festival in Key Largo May 2-5, including a May 2 cocktail reception that he will host with film critic Leonard Maltin. The reception will be followed by an outdoor waterfront screening of the movie.

The 1948 movie Key Largo told the story of a group of gangsters holed up in a hotel with the hotel owners and others during a ferocious hurricane.

Stephen Bogart will also host a Casablanca -themed Bogart ball May 4 at the Hilton Key Largo Resort with a Moroccan-themed dinner where Maltin will speak. Tickets to the ball are $175 per person. Tickets to individual screenings are $10 each. Details at http://www.bogartfilmfestival.com.
