Humphrey Bogart movies: ‘The Maltese Falcon,’ ‘High Sierra’ (Image: Most famous Humphrey Bogart quote: ‘The stuff that dreams are made of’ from ‘The Maltese Falcon’) (See previous post: “Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall Movies.”) Besides 1948, 1941 was another great year for Humphrey Bogart — one also featuring a movie with the word “Sierra” in the title. Indeed, that was when Bogart became a major star thanks to Raoul Walsh’s High Sierra and John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon. In the former, Bogart plays an ex-con who falls in love with top-billed Ida Lupino — though both are outacted by ingénue-with-a-heart-of-tin Joan Leslie. In the latter, Bogart plays Dashiel Hammett’s private detective Sam Spade, trying to discover the fate of the titular object; along the way, he is outacted by just about every other cast member, from Mary Astor’s is-she-for-real dame-in-distress to Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee Sydney Greenstreet.

Batman Incorporated is over – or at least the organisation is. We’re 3 issues away from the finale in July but issue #10, “Gotham’s Most Wanted”, sees Batman Inc. in ruins with Batman no longer welcome in Gotham and being actively pursued by the Gcpd. Meanwhile, Talia prepares for the final showdown with a righteously furious Dark Knight, and Nightwing, Red Robin, Ranger and Knight search for Wingman who’s being held captive by unknown forces. And Bruce? Bruce decides to take an all-or-nothing approach in his all-out assault on Leviathan – and it is Epic.
DC’s Wtf covers have been utterly nonsensical and pointless for the most part but the one Chris Burnham did for this issue actually ties into what happens in the comic – a feat unto itself! The tag is “He will become a creature of the night… he shall become a Bat!” so it’s no surprise »
