Format: Paperback
I have purchased this book for two reasons: First, I have been a fan of Humphrey Bogart for most of my life and second, the book has received a favourable mention by the distinguished Observer's film critic, Mr Philip French.

This elegantly - produced book is a Palazzo edition, published in the UK, in 2010. The content is divided into four sections: 1) A Foreword by his son Stephen Bogart, 2) An Appreciation: The Genuine Article by the documentary filmmaker Richard Schickel 3) The Movies by the author George Perry and 4) Epitaph for a Tough Guy by the American correspondent of The Guardian, the late Alistair Cooke.
The bulk of the book is in sections two and three, both of which mainly discuss ( rather than evaluate) Bogart and his films and inevitably, there is some overlap though section two, focussing primarily on Bogart the person, rather than the actor, is the more analytical of the two.
A big unexpected bonus is the inclusion of many of Bogart's photos of remarkable quality and feels. They represent publicity stills originally released by the studios making the films. There are 112 of them, a few occupying an entire page, and, for a book of no more than 192 odd pages, make a huge positive difference to its presentation and value.
The book briefly traces Bogart's life, from his birth on Christmas Day, in 1899, to his untimely death on 14th, January 1957. Domestic bliss eluded the actor three times, but was fourth time lucky when he married Lauren Bacall, 25years his junior, on 21 May, 1945.

His film career extended from 1930, when he accepted a part in the unremarkable movie " Up the River" (John Ford, 1930) and, having made seventy-seven more films, he did his last movie " The Harder They Fall", which was released in 1956 (Mark Robson, 1956).

Format: Paperback
humphrey bogart may or may not have been the greatest actor in the history of cinema but he was far better than people realised and this volume proves that.
whilst reading this, i was fascinated by the information that came to light and how bogart learnt his trade and of his struggling to establish himself in hollywood.
the photos that have been selected are excellent and a lot of them i haven't seen before. i like the way that each of his films have been discussed in detail and that the author offers his opinion as to how good each film is, without expecting the reader to agree with him.
