Bogie (1980)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Vincent Sherman directs this bio of screen legend Humphrey Bogart, which is interesting since Sherman directed several Bogart pictures including The Return of Dr. X and All Through the Night. Kevin O'Connor gets the part of Bogart as we see the star struggle in Hollywood but eventually take off into a major star. We also see his personal life including his troubled marriage to Mayo Methot (Ann Wedgeworth) and eventual love Lauren Bacall (Kathryn Harrold). I think the hardest thing for an actor to do is try and play another legendary character and that rings true here. O'Connor really doesn't look like Bogart, certainly doesn't sound like him and he never perfectly captures the Bogart feel but there's not an actor alive who could capture Bogart except Bogart himself. With that said, O'Connor really isn't too bad here and overall I could put aside the obvious differences and enjoy his performance. Wedgeworth is a tad bit over the top as the alcoholic Mayo but Harrold isn't too bad as Bacall. For the most part the film looks at the two marriages of Bogart, which is fine but I wish they had paid more attention to Bogart the actor. There are a couple great scenes with Bogart in the office of Jack Warner arguing about roles and I wish there were more of this.
