Quotes

John Huston: [On "The Maltese Falcon":] The original intention was to have George Raft play it. But he pulled away from it because he didn't want to trust his career to a young director, someone who had never directed before. And Bogart, to my secret delight, was substituted. And that picture began, I think, a whole new career for Bogey.

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.
