One thought on “Bogey – The Films Of Humphrey Bogart

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars
    Disappointing; short of Citadel’s usual standard, January 26, 2012

    This review is from: Bogey – The Films Of Humphrey Bogart (Paperback)

    This is a disappointing entry in the Citadel “Films of” series, particularly for one of Hollywood’s more revered movie stars. The book follows the same format as most of the others in the series, providing a cast list, credits, plot outline and photos of each movie in Bogart’s catalogue. Where this book falls down significantly is a lack of any critical evaluation or discussion found in most of the other Citadel books. Only a few films, such as “Casablanca” and “The African Queen”, have an additional brief paragraph of background information. Bogart was more fortunate in his career than many of his contemporaries in appearing in movies enjoying a generally high standard and critical success, particularly from 1940. Unfortunately those not very familiar with Bogart’s work will not get any impression of that from this book. At only 192 pages the book is otherwise acceptable if all you’re looking is a cast list, plot summary and some photos.
