Here is Humphrey Bogart: the pro’s pro on the set and the Hollywood renegade off it; the man’s man, the ladies’ man, the hard worker, and the man who liked to drink too much; the husband in three roller-coaster marriages and finally one perfect match; the proud father and absentee parent; the good friend and even better enemy.

Writing with the encouragement of his famous mother, Lauren Bacall, Stephen calls on his memories as well as the access he had to friends and colleagues of his father. The result is an intimate and personal profile of an enigmatic man whose tough image contrasted with very human ambitions and vulnerabilities.

This vastly entertaining book is filled with fascinating stories involving Frank Sinatra, Katherine Hepburn, “Swifty” Lazar, John Huston, Jason Robards, and many others.

    " After reading Lauren Bacall's autobio this is a nice followup - Looking at Bogie from another side. You hear him relate stories that Bacall references as well but it is from a young son's perspective instead of Bogie's wife. Gives more of a well rounded perspective on the man, myth, legend... "
