Quotes

Lauren Bacall: It was 1944. I was 19, brand new in Hollywood and under personal contract to director Howard Hawks. Now, Howard had told me he wanted me to be in a movie with either Cary Grant or Humphrey Bogart. I thought, "Wow, Cary Grant!" I'd already tested for To Have And Have Not and was going to be in it with, of course, Bogey's approval. One day I was going into Hawks' office, and Bogey was on his way out.

An excellent anthology of Bogart's work
8 April 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Bacall on Bogart" is an excellent portrait film. It delivers an educational overview of Bogart's career and life focusing primarily on the essentials: his career, his movies, the roles he is remembered by. Excerpts from most of his movies are featured, with particular focus on hits such as "Casablanca" and "The Maltese Falcon" and numerous rarely seen or unreleased clips.

It is also an unusually elegant experience, hosted by the eloquent Lauren Bacall, who shares many interesting insights about her late husband as a person and as a professional. Interviews with peers such as Katharine Hepburn and John Huston, who share wonderful memories and memorable characterizations, also help bring the viewer closer to the legend in an exceptionally strong and informative portrait of one of the world's favorite film actors.
