USA, 1969 (MIFF 1970, Programme 30)
Director: Marshall Flaum
Ten years after his death has come a phenomenal resurgence of interest in the work of Humphrey Bogart. This documentary analyses the Bogart revival through interviews, rare tapes, stills, newsreel material, and clips from such Elms as The Petrified Forest, Little Caesar, High Sierra and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.
It did not quite explain what Bogart's magic was, but it did wrap up footage from his films for a fascinating exercise in nostalgia... The show also spotlighted a lesser-known side of the Bogart film character, the pretty-boy Juvenile in some early Broadway plays and Warner Bros. productions.
