interesting bio on H Bogart by his son
10 December 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Spoilers -- Third time is a charm, they say.... in bogey's case, the fourth time was the charm. Married to four actresses, he had to wait until he worked with Lauren Bacall to find true love. Bogey's story, with it's up and downs, is told in detail by his son Stephen, who had written a bio about H.B. We get to hear the details of the good times and the bad, the early, stormy, marriages, the period of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee, and his private times, like sailing on his boat, drinking, and chess. Stephen talks about the rough relationships HB had with directors (John Huston) and even fellow actors. The bonus here is that in addition to hearing tidbits about HB, we also get to see clips from many of his films, most of which have been restored by now. Also interesting commentary by one "expert" on his life - Lauren Bacall herself, along with others familiar with HB and the industry at the time. I LOVE the quote from Bacall when she speaks of wife #3: "I had been warned she might drop a lamp on my head.' Several years after winning his Oscar for "African Queen", HB died of cancer. Bacall never did win the Oscar, although they had done some of their best films together (Key Largo, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage). Directed by Chris Hunt, who had made numerous made-for-TV projects during the 1990s and early 2000s.
