Humphrey Bogart Summary

Humphrey Bogart: The Making of a Legend by Darwin Porter

A juicy saga of a film icon's early love affairs, revealing what really lay under the trench coat of history's most famous movie star. This is a radical expansion of one of Darwin Porter's earlier Bogart biographies, incorporating a wider timeline - in this case, the years between Bogart's birth in 1899 until his marriage to Lauren Bacall in 1944. This revelatory book is based on dusty, unpublished memoirs, letters, diaries and personal interviews from the women and the men who adored him, as well as shocking allegations from those who didn't.

Humphrey Bogart Reviews

On the silver screen he was tough, cool, and sophisticated. In real life, he was one of Hollywood's legendary lovers. Sexually voracious and habitually unfaithful, Humphrey Bogart had three unhappy marriages before he met the love of his life, Lauren Bacall. Now it has emerged in an extraordinary new biography that before marrying her in 1945, Bogie had bedded an estimated 1,000 women, including Bette Davis, Jean Harlow, Marlene Dietrich, and Ingrid Bergman. The claim is made in a new biography of the actor by Darwin Porter, a journalist who worked in Hollywood in the 1960s. It's based on unpublished memoirs and interviews with some of the actor's contemporaries. -- David Wilkes, The Daily Mail (UK), October 3, 2010
