More Views

Humphrey Bogart was America’s leading man; his on screen presence resonated with charm, mystery and masculine defiance. Woman wanted him and men idolized him. He stood as the defining star of Hollywood’s toughest era and remains a cinematic icon around the globe.

Now this exclusive DVD production showcases Bogart’s talents as an actor and screen legend with John Huston’s 1953 thriller ‘Beat The Devil’ while a rare personal appearance on The Jack Benny Show (aka The Lucky Strike Program) offers a more candid look at the man himself as he chats with host Jack Benny and hams it up with some skit comedy.

BEAT THE DEVIL (1953)
Script by Truman Capote
Directed by John Huston
Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida, Robert Morley, Peter Lorre and Bernard Lee

Bogart leads an all star cast in this comedic drama that follows the adventures of a motley crew of swindlers and con-men as they wait in a small Italian port aboard an ill-fated steamer en route to Kenya, where land rich in uranium deposits awaits. Deftly directed as a parody of the Film Noir style by John Huston the film transcends its genre limitations as the cast of characters take to double dealing and triple crossing each other in order to lock down the valuable real estate.

THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM is one of the few television appearances made by Bogart during his career! Bogie plays it straight as he delivers his lines and sings his way through a live TV commercial. Mastered from a 16mm kinoscope this appearance is a great rarity featuring the legendary actor.
