“They were great friends, him and my mother were great friends with Katie and Spencer Tracy. And I remember going over to their house. Katie was my brother Sam’s godmother. It was a longtime friendship. My father always admired talent, and Katie was a great, great actress. They were friends forever. They were close.” - Stephen Bogart speaking to Entertainment Weekly about THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951) and the re-release of the film in honor of its 70th anniversary! Fathom Events with TCM will be bringing back the Bogart/Hepburn film this month - check Fathom Events’ website for local showings. ⁣

Channelling my inner Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (without shawl lapel) during my visit at @edwardsexton in Knightsbridge, London. Wide peak lapels, structured shoulders, pockets cut at the same height of the last button and no vents because “this jacket must embrace the hips” as Mr. Sexton himself would put it. Soon my article on TBD website.

Giacca alla Humphrey Bogart nel film Casablanca (senza collo a scialle) provata durante la mia visita da Edward Sexton a Knightsbridge, Londra. Ampi revers a lancia, spalla strutturata, tasche tagliate all'altezza dell'ultimo bottone e niente spacchi perché “questa giacca deve abbracciare i fianchi” per usare le parole di Mr Sexton. Presto su TBD l'articolo sulla mia visita.

Two by John Huston. The African Queen is a rewatch. What’s remarkable is how full of life the movie is at the beginning, with the missionary work and the dreadful heat that is so communicated throughout. The boat journey is delightful. Huston really could get so much out of just two characters (great actors, of course) who talk and make plans. One of Huston’s very best, and justly counted among the great films.
.
The Unforgiven, from 1960, unfortunately is the opposite. It starts out okay, but we are soon enmeshed in a windswept soap opera of unbelievably oversaturated emotions and overwrought motives. It concerns two families about to intermarry - but Lancaster, the oldest brother, is reluctant to let Hepburn (his sister) marry. He drinks moonshine every time he makes a hard decision. There’s a mysterious horseman about who knows a family secret. Shenanigans happen, the horseman is hanged, uttering the terrible secret. It’s a dramatic moment, but next we see Lancaster and his family trying to drown out the Indian flutes playing across the fields by playing their piano outside. It’s one of the silliest scenes I’ve ever seen in a “serious” film. I could not help but laugh at this MST3K- worthy movie. I rejoiced to find out that Huston hated it.

The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) & The Maltese Falcon (1943)
.
My re-watch of John Huston’s The Maltest Falcon (1941) was my fourth viewing, and each time I see the movie I have a different reaction. In 2002 I liked it, but it was all flash and style and made me feel smart. In 2010 all that had washed away and the pool was too shallow to drink from. In 2014 the film had improved significantly, and I delighted in its breathless filmmaking. Some of that stayed with me on this most recent outing, as I was struck by just how personal a film it must have been for director John Huston and his career, since he also wrote the script. This time it was fun to imagine Huston working behind the camera, like a Christopher Nolan, hard at work putting all the pieces together. Bogart skips around with a devlish smile on his face, playing the fiendish characters against each other in the journey to discover who killed his partner (the henchman play by Elisha Cook Jr was a surprisingly well written part for a “small” role). It’s fun, stylish, a classic for a reason, but nowhere close to the depths of greater classics like Casablanca and Treasure of the Sierra Madre.
.
The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) is one of the very greatest films ever made, coming from someone who thinks Citizen Kane is way up there. But Joan is much, much greater than Kane, delivering heightened spiritual emotions frame-to-frame. I defer further discussion of it to the essay inside the Criterion Collection DVD’s booklet. What’s to be said is better said there than here. The film’s recent-ish soundtrack (1995) is a modern oratorio called “Voices of Light” by Richard Einhorn. Its libretto is compiled expertly from a who’s-who of Medieval women mystics. The music is inspired, an absolute masterpiece which transforms and uplifts its subject even higher, and it works on its own as a Great Musical Work. This was my second viewing of the film.

Humphrey Bogart as a Catholic priest in China. He comes, he takes over for a priest who died from the stress of the mission. From the get-go the script is Very Aware of the strangeness of Bogart-As-Man-Of-God. The tone starts out very dour, giving us permission to see this priest (who begins by crossing a river and mountains) as a tired man, perfunctory in his duties. He has excuses and wakes up late. He’s certainly not shy about admitting his attraction to the missionary nurse who assists the irreligious doctor (Dr. Sigmund!!!) and his wife at the hospital. The nurse for her part seems to regard Father O'Shea with respect but secretly falls for him, or so the doctor’s wife tells him, in an effort to save her from staying in China. Bogart is encouragedd to visit the Methodist mission on the other side of the mountain to give the love pinings some space. There are some subplots. Some business about a warlord who won’t attack on certain conditions, a pilot spouse who crashed, and a fun piano scene where Bogart plays and sings (it’s okay, he has enough bravura for the rest of us and somehow pulls it off). Anyways, Bogart goes to the Methodist reverand for a collegial tete-a-tete and it is at this point that we meet The Volta, and the film transforms dramatically (no really, the drama changes) and then refolds back upon itself, ending neatly but with a bit too much self gratification. In no way an unworthy film. There are problems, the ones you’d suspect: dubbing the parishioners, garish chinese-y music (the music in general is overweaning - have the plaintive violins ever made themselves so self-evident?), and despite a brilliant village set and a generous loan by the natural scenery there are no real Chinese characters who matter. On the other hand, the dialogue is pretty snappy and rarely lags. The characters of Dr. Sigmund and his wife Beryl are very capably fleshed out by EG Marshall and Agnes Moorehead. Gene Tierney plays “Scotty” the priest-smitten nurse. The stand out is Bogart as this priest who is (as the film self consciously reminds us) so very magnetic. @humphreybogart #thelefthandofgod #humphreybogart #film #movie #movies #classicfilms (at Nashville, Tennessee)
