Product Details

This 90 minute documentary covers the entirety of Bogart's career, and some of his personal life, in particular his childhood and his marriage to the narrator, Lauren Bacall. We see rarely seen clips from the early 30's that Bogart did including his first film, "Broadway's Like That", a short he did with Ruth Etting. The sound disc for that Vitaphone short is lost but the video survives, so we do get a look at Bogart's early persona as a likable good guy. He played this personality up until his first big break as Duke Mantee in "The Petrified Forest" in 1936. The film looks at parts Bogie took on reluctantly as a Warner contract player, his big break in the early 40's with "High Sierra", and is honest about the films he did that were either not that good or not that well received. Also features interviews with director John Huston, Katharine Hepburn, and others who worked with Bogart through the years.
