Overview

Thanks to iconic roles in films such as The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart was and is known as a “tough guy.” Yet the more complicated truth about him has, until now, remained out of focus. We have gone thundering past the intersection where personal history and screen character meet and mutually inform each other, argues legendary, award-winning film critic Richard Shickel. In this book, he lingers at that crossroads and contemplates the evidence about who and what Bogie really was.
