The film track

that's been running in my mind ever since I got stung by the bee is Walter Brennan in the 1946 Howard Hawks' Casablanca variant To Have & Have Not which stars for the first time the combination of Bogart & Bacall — they were married by the time they did The Big Sleep for Hawks later on in 1946 — with Hoagy Carmichael also in the cast. Brennan has a supporting role as Bogart's alcoholic deckhand & goes around asking any- & everyone he meets "Ever get stung by a dead bee?"
