Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

The name Humphrey Bogart conjures up images of the tough character who is the master of intrigue in Hollywood films of the 1930s. The plain-speaking Bogart always solves the mystery and gets the girl, in such films as The Maltese Falcon, Key Largo, and To Have and Have Not. This program traces the life and movie career of a man whose personal experience was so different from his screen persona. There are archival film clips of some of Bogart's unforgettable roles, such as in Casablanca, The African Queen, and The Treasure of Sierra Madre. Interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, as well as the actor himself, provide an intimate look at this giant of American cinema.
