Loved it. I felt like an insider to his wild life, learning many personal things about being that he called his boat keeper "Squarehead", which is how I came to call Mark the same. I love Bogart. Handsome man.
Great book filled with photos from Humphrey Bogart's life and career. It runs through his life, his movies, and what influenced and shaped him, and how he came to be the icon that he was then, and is still today.
This isn't nearly as good as Schickel's book on Cagney, mainly because only part of it is by Schickel, with a large chunk by another writer who repeats what he's just said. Beautiful photos of Bogie's films, though.
The writing isn't brilliant, there are typos, and much of the biography is rehashed in the filmography. But oh! the glossy full-page photos!
