Review:

It's the season of battling Bogarts: two biographies, each worthwhile for different reasons. If you want a leisurely, formidably well-documented account of Humphrey Bogart's legendary screen career and four marriages (including a happy final one to Lauren Bacall), this is it. A. M. Sperber conducted some 200 interviews with people who knew the actor before his death in 1994; Eric Lax draws on her seven years of research to create a nuanced, in-depth, elegantly written portrait of the man recently dubbed Hollywood's greatest star by Premiere magazine.

From the Back Cover:

Bogart paints an indelible portrait of a complex man, from the privilege and abuse he experienced in childhood to his triumphant 1935 acting breakthrough in The Petrified Forest to his classic roles as the cynical idealist Rick of Casablanca and the drunken yet lovable Charlie Allnut in The African Queen.

Based on more than two hundred interviews, years of research, and documents ranging from Warner Brothers script reports to an extensive FBI file, this is the definitive account of the immortal actor, painted against a backdrop of studio politics during Hollywood’s Golden Age and the witch-hunts of the McCarthy era.

Bogart is engrossing and unforgettable—a biography as towering as the legend at its heart.
