Trivia

On May 28, 1956, the show aired a television adaptation of the Arlen and Harburg Broadway musical, "Bloomer Girl", starring Barbara Cook and Keith Andes. If a kinescope of this exists, it will add an important chapter to the history of Broadway, as no portion of the show except for this television production was captured on film or tape. See more »

Fun to see Bogart as an older Mantee
12 February 2004 | by paparaySee all my reviews

My only interest in this made-for-TV show was to watch Bogart go through the same moves he did that got him started back in the 30's. For Bogart fans, it should be a real treat if you can find it. I viewed it in 2004. UCLA has a copy in their archives.
