    A tribute to Bogie. What a wonderful commemoration, Steve. My kudos and heartfelt thanks.

    A great Biographic. After his death, Lauren Bacall (88), who was born Betty Joan Perske and was 25 years his junior, married Jason Robards in 1961, divorced in 1969, and never married again. She always said nobody could take Bogey’s place.

    Great bio but a few omissions that are worth mentioning. The Big Sleep was one of his best movies, playing Raymond Chandler’s famous Private Detective Philip Marlowe.
    Also, forgot to mention his radio work with Bacall in the 1951 – 1952 “Bold Venture”.
    However, I do realize that in such a small space you have to omit some things.

    A very underrated Dolores Moran appeared with Bogie & Bacall, but could never break through the way Bacall did.

    Since high school Bogart has been my favorite actor.
    I’ve only been on GoComics since 2011, so naturally, Steve, I assumed you’d already covered Bogie.
    This was a nice surprise (I wondered who you’d profile for Mother’s Day; thought perhaps Donna Reed or Barbara Bel Geddes or some other famous TV mom).
    Thanks for the classy tribute.

    Bogey didn’t say, “Play it again, Sam,” in "Casablanca; he simply said, “Play it, Sam.” (I had to look it up.)

    I’ve been reading Gocomics since 2007, and this is the first time he’s done a bio on Bogey.

    At last, a bio on an actor from my favorite movie era. I love listening to his old radio programs.
