Abstract:

From the Publisher: Two accomplished film writers pay tribute to one of cinema's most enduring symbols in this lavishly illustrated monograph complete with a foreword from Bogart's son, published in association with his estate. Richard Schickel assesses Humphrey Bogart's career and enduring legacy while George Perry provides a detailed review of the films he made over three decades, with a particular focus on his key roles, in this highly illustrated survey of a much-loved star. From his emergence as a figure to be reckoned with in High Sierra and as private eye Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon in 1941, and his iconic performance in Casablanca two years later, to his Oscar-winning role in The African Queen in 1952, Humphrey Bogart ensured his place as a true Hollywood legend. Following the success of his Oscar-winning role in The African Queen, Bogart starred in several other notable movies, including Beat the Devil and The Caine Mutiny. While Bogart's personal charm is to this day unmatched onscreen, his private life was also the stuff of legend. His relationship with Lauren Bacall is explored here, as they formed one of Hollywood's most celebrated on and off-screen couples.
