520    For countless millions, Humphrey Bogart?s screen 
       performances and real-life persona merged to make him one 
       of the world?s most fabled figures?a legend of mythic 
       proportions. Or, as his Sam Spade would have put it?the 
       stuff that dreams are made of. But for his only son, 
       Stephen, eight years old in 1957 when his father died of 
       lung cancer, Humphrey Bogart?s giant shadow was a burden 
       he carried until he finally came to understand the private
       man behind his father?s public face. And now, in this 
       candid and insightful biography, Stephen Bogart explores 
       and illuminates Humphrey Bogart?s life, work, and 
       relationships as they never have been before. Writing with
       the encouragement of his famous mother, Lauren Bacall, 
       Stephen calls on his memories, and take full advantage of 
       the extraordinary access he has had to friends and 
       colleagues of his father. The result is an intimate and 
       personal profile of an enigmatic man whose tough image 
       contrasted with very human ambitions and vulnerabilities. 
       It is also a vastly entertaining book, filled with 
       fascinating stories involving Frank Sinatra, Katharine 
       Hepburn,?Swifty? Lazar, John Huston, Stephen Bogart?s 
       stepfather, Jason Robards, and many others. Here is 
       Humphrey Bogart, the pro?s pro on the set and the 
       Hollywood renegade off it. The man?s man, the ladies? man,
       the hard worker, and the man who liked to drink too much. 
       The husband in three roller-coaster marriages and finally 
       one perfect match, the proud father and absentee parent, 
       the good friend and even better enemy. Here are eye-
       witness accounts of his most celebrated public misdeeds 
       and moving testimonies of his most unexpected private 
       moments. And finally, in perhaps the most compelling 
       chapter of this shining saga, here is the close-up of 
       Bogart?s last months, where his courage, dignity, and 
       humor made his most stirring celluloid roles seem pale. 
       Combining the drama of Humphrey Bogart?s life with that of
       a son whose path of reconciliation first had to move 
       through a very difficult time, this is biography at its 
       best?at once a loving tribute and a fascinating 
       revelation. This ebook edition includes photographs 
       directly from Stephen Bogart's personal collection.
