Here's lookin' at you, Bogie
On October 5, Warner Brothers released Humphrey Bogart: The Essential Collection - a collection of 24 Bogart films complete with goodies!
The set includes a 48-page book about Bogie with an introduction by Robert Osborne - TCM's host and film historian, 12 Discs containing 24 movies and special features including bloopers, radio shows, classic cartoons and newsreels plus short documentaries.
Another added bonus is a 13th disc, "The Brothers Warner" - an interesting documentary about the Warner Brothers themselves, who brought Humphrey Bogart to fame.
Finally, one of my favorite parts of this classic collection is a special collector's set of photo cards with posters and rare correspondence about Humphrey, which shows someone's sense of humor.
This must have set contains hours and hours of vintage entertainment for any Bogie fan out there.
The collection includes To Have and Have Not (1944) - the film he was making when he met Lauren Bacall; Casablanca (1942), The Maltese Falcon (1941), The Big Sleep (1946), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), Key Largo (1948), and more.
You can purchase this collection today for only $79.95 ( and FREE SHIPPING!) at the WB Shop.
