Tough Without a Gun: The Life and Extraordinary Afterlife of Humphey Bogart
Stefan Kanfer [Biography Bogart]
A detailed study of Humphrey Bogart.
Told chronologically, the biography really picks up when "Casablanca" enters the
storyline. The author discusses and evaluates Bogart's films, the other actors,
interesting stories of everyone involved. Last couple chapters discuss Bogart's
influence on Hollywood and society, and why there will never be another Humphrey
Bogart. Not for the first-timer seeking initial info on Bogie. Best read by
those already familiar with his filmography and life to really enjoy the depth
of discussion. -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
