| Short but worth seeing.
This is a short film that is a combination biography and filmography of Humphrey Bogart that was made for Turner Classic Movies. Interestingly, it's narrated by his son, Stephen Bogart, a man who barely knew his father when the man died in 1957. Through the film, it's as if Stephen is introducing his father to the audience as well as to himself.

The film follows Bogart from his childhood to his death and makes a few detours along the way to discuss his marriages as well as highlight a few films ("The Maltese Falcon", "Casablanca", "The Treasure of Sierra Madre", "Key Largo" and "The Caine Mutiny") and pretty much ignores his flops or good films that are not as famous. This is mostly because the film is so darned short--and clocks in at only about 45 minutes--not very long for a man as complex or as prolific as Humphrey Bogart. Well worth seeing and worth your time but certainly not a documentary for the advanced students of Bogartology.
