Bogart & Bacall- what else can you say?

Product Overview

They met on the WB lot. The year was 1944. "I just saw your screen test," Bogart said to Bacall. "I think we're going to have a lot of fun together." And so it began...

Listed as the Greatest Male Star of All Time and one the Greatest Female Legends by the American Film Institute, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall star in the all new Bogie & Bacall: The Signature Collection. This giftset includes all four films that starred one of classic Hollywood's noted couples.

THE BIG SLEEP L.A. private eye Phillip Marlowe takes on a blackmail case...and a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Humphrey Bogart plays Raymond Chandlers' legendary gumshoe and director Howard Hawkes serves up snappy character encounters (particularly involving Lauren Bacall), brisk pace and atmosphere galore in the certified classic.

DARK PASSAGE Bogey's on the lam and Bacall's at his side in Dark Passage, Delmer Daves' stylish film-noir thriller that's the third of four films Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall made together. Bogart is Vincent Parry, a prison escapee framed for murder who emerges from plastic surgery with a new face. Bacall is Irene Jansen, Vincent's lone ally. In a supporting role, Agnes Moorehead portrays Madge, a venomous harpy who finds pleasure in the unhappiness of others.

KEY LARGO A hurricane swells outside, but it's nothing compared to the storm within the hotel at Key Largo. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) holes up - and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nora Temple (Lauren Bacall), her invalid father-in-law (Lionel Barrymore) and ex-GI Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart). McCloud's the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco. But the postwar world's realities may have taken all the fight out of him. John Huston co-wrote and compellingly directs this film of Maxwell Anderson's 1939 play with a searing Academy Award-winning* performance by Claire Trevor as Rocco's gold-hearted, boozy moll. In Huston's hands, it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic.

TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT That red-hot match is Bogart and 19-year-old first-time film actress Lauren Bacall. Full of intrigue and racy banter (including Bacall's legendary whistling instructions), this thriller excites further interest for what it has and has not. Cannily directed by Howard Hawks and smartly written by William Faulkner and Jules Furthman, it doesn't have much similarity to the Ernest Hemingway novel that inspired it. And it strongly resembles Casablanca: French resistance fighters, a piano-playing bluesman (Hoagy Carmichael) and a Martinique bar much like Rick's Cafe Americaine. But first and foremost, it showcases Bogart and Bacall, carrying on with a passion that smolders from the tips of their cigarettes clear through to their souls.

Review [Big] It's Bogart from action start to gun-blazing finish, with excellent support from Lauren Bacall and all others of the cast. Plenty of high-wire suspense and unexpected situations that call for nail-nibbling or chair-arm twisting...Highly recommended for fans who like their whodunits highly seasoned...

Review [Key] Bogart is always a pleasure to watch, and Key Largo is no exception, despite its rather overly dramatic -- yet simplistic -- plot structure involving a gangster (Robinson) who takes over a Florida hotel during a deadly hurricane. It ultimately pales next to other Bogart and Bacall work, though it's still a reasonably good watch that has stood up well over the last 50 years.

Review [Have] The aspect that elevates To Have and Have Not, and the best reason to watch this movie, is the interaction between Bogart and Bacall. Not only is this the first movie they made together, but it is, in a sense, a cinematic record of their falling in love. Recently, Cameron Crowe marveled at how the blossoming on-set relationship between Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz enriched the romantic texture of Vanilla Sky. Yet, compared to what Bogart and Bacall display in To Have and Have Not, the Cruise/Cruz liaison is tepid...The chemistry is at its strongest and most unmistakable in To Have and Have Not.

Review [Dark] The performances live up to the legends who gave them, though as a "Bogey & Bacall" vehicle, it doesn't come close to classics like Key Largo and The Big Sleep. Bogart's eyes, behind a gauze-wrapped face, add a whole new depth to the definition of "soulful"...All the supporting actors are fantastic: Clifton Young is bug-eyed and frenetic, a speed-talking, more (yes, more) sociopathic 1947 version of The Sopranos' Ralphie. Bruce Bennett and Agnes Moorehead (best known to current generations as Endora, Tabitha's mother, on Betwitched) have palpable chemistry as the sidekicks and zing repartee back and forth.
