"NO MORE GANGSTER ROLES for me," declares disgruntled second-fiddle movie actor Humphrey Bogart, obtaining a special investigator's license, planning to turn his back on Hollywood.
But superstardom and World War Two are about to fall on Bogie, who's own world becomes shaken by his homicidal wife, a crashing encounter between a mysterious submarine and his beloved cabin cruiser "Sluggy," a priceless emerald and diamond necklace stolen from Russia's murdered Czarina, and death screaming from the skies.
