Quotes

Lauren Bacall: As a result of Casablanca, Jack Warner made the brilliant discovery that Bogey had sex appeal ... As you might imagine, Bogey thought that was pretty funny. He said, "I'm the same man I have always been. Jack doesn't realize that if Bergman looks at any man with love in her eyes, he must have sex appeal."

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.
