Confidential Agent (Warner 1945, Charles Boyer, Lauren Bacall)

Confidential Agent

In Confidential Agent a famous concert pianist in ’30s Spain travels to London to purchase a consignment of coal for the Loyalist struggle and prevent the Nazis from getting their hands on it. There he meets the beautiful Bacall and falls in love with her.

Confidential Agent was Lauren Bacall’s second appearance on screen following her debut in To Have and To Have Not (1944). It was actually her third film, but the release of Howard Hawks’s The Big Sleep was held up for more than a year.
