Bogart, Gina Lollobrigida, Peter Lorre, and More, Having Fun

Many movie fans consider Humphrey Bogart to be the most talented actor that ever planted his face on film, and he not only starred in this movie, but produced it also.

He was scheduled to star in “The Caine Mutiny” soon, but before that there was some time to kill. He invited some of his best friends to join him in this situation comedy tinged with crime, satire, intrigue and witty dialogue lines that you'll want to use and claim as your own.

I can imagine Bogart saying to some of his friends, “Let's go to Italy for a few weeks of fun, and while we are there we can make a movie together.” Who could refuse that offer?

Gina Lollobrigida, Bogart’s wife, is one of the most famous and beautiful Italian actresses of all time. It is impossible to enjoy classic Hollywood movies without knowing the legendary John Huston, who co-produced and directed this story. British character actor Robert Morley and the uniquely talented Peter Lorre round out a star-studded cast. And don’t forget Tulsa born, Academy Award winner Jennifer Jones, who becomes Bogart’s second love-interest.

In this adventure, Humphrey Bogart is leading a group of mysterious men to Africa to secretly purchase land that they believe holds priceless amounts of uranium. They are joined by a couple from Britain.

We don’t need to concentrate on the story line too much. Like Bogart’s earlier classic, “The Big Sleep,” the story plot is only a convenience that allows our legendary cast to interact with each other in fun, amazing and memorable ways. This is a comedy for sure, but not slapstick or cornball comedy. It is adult, sophisticated word-play that will amuse and entertain like few comedies can. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
