The Best of Hollywood in Black and White,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bogie And Bacall: The Signature Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Over six black and white hours of vintage Hollywood entertainment packed with dastardly villains, tough cops, some excellent character actors, soaring musical scores and superb storytelling make this a bargain set. True,the fact that seemingly no-one could be found to look vaguely like Bogart without being him makes "Dark Passage" a curio rather than a classic but the location shots make it very watchable. In any event the other three films more than make up for it. In addtion to memorable performances by Bogart and Bacall you have Hoagy Carmichael popping up in "To Have and Have Not", Edward G Robinson snarling his way to infamy in "Key Largo" and "The Big Sleep" with the world weary Bogart/Philip Marlawe walking those mean streets. What more could you ask?
