Product Description:

The first definitive biography of his times Humphrey Bogart was an icon. For 2 eventful decades his screen roles reflected the National mood, from the gangster-ridden 1930's of the Petrified Forest through the wartime escapism of Casablanca and the Maltese Falcon to the postwar alienation of In a Lonely Place. A.M.Sperber and Eric Lax's research has uncovered Bogart's own childhood writing, his extensive FBI File; they have scoured the Warner Borthers archives where Bogart made most of his films; they interviewed 200 of his friends and colleagues. Here is the life, loves and career of an eduring symbol of American cinema.
