Bogie's Finest in Neat New Blu-ray Box Set March 22 2014
By The Movie Man - Published on Amazon.com
"The Best of Bogart Collection" is a bonus-packed assemblage of four movies that can truthfully be called "Bogie's Best." All are classics.

"Casablanca" (1942), one of the most popular, most quoted films of all time, takes place in the title city during World War II. The plot revolves around a couple of letters of transit, an old flame unexpectedly turning up, a corrupt police captain, and a villainous Nazi general. The excellent cast includes Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet, and Conrad Veidt. This is Bogart's most famous picture as well as a Best Picture Academy Award winner and, in pristine Blu-ray, it has never looked better. Bonus extras include commentary by Roger Ebert, additional scenes and outtakes, vintage cartoon, and an introduction by Lauren Bacall.

"The Maltese Falcon" (1941) focuses on Sam Spade (Bogart), a partner in a private-eye firm who finds himself hounded by police when his partner is killed while tailing a man. The girl (Mary Astor) who hired him to follow the man turns out not to be who she says she is and is involved in an intrigue with a certain statue of the title bird. This Maltese Falcon is also the obsession of two shady characters, Joel Cairo (Peter Lorre) and Kasper Gutman (Sydney Greenstreet). Bonus extras include commentary by a Bogart biographer, a background featurette, a studio blooper reel, make-up tests, and 3 audio-only radio adaptations.

"The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948), has Bogie in Hollywood's definitive action drama about the destructive effects of greed, with an Academy Award-winning performance by Walter Huston. Bonus extras include making-of featurettes, a profile of director John Huston, newsreels, classic cartoons, and a comedy short.

The last film of the collection, "The African Queen" (1951) takes place in 1914. Bogart as cantankerous, unkempt sailor Charlie Allnut trades witty repartee with Katharine Hepburn as the outspoken sister of a missionary aboard a rickety boat that they contrive to navigate through rough waters to do their part for the British war effort. A behind-the-scenes featurette chronicles the difficulties of shooting on location in Africa in an era when most motion pictures were shot in studios and on backlots.

Excellent films , budget packaging April 4 2014
By Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
All of these films are essential to any legit movie collection.... and all of them are excellently presented on Blu Ray , in fact they are the same discs available as stand alone Blu Ray discs with ALL the bonus features and documentaries so no short cuts are taken there. The size is a bit smaller than four discs so it's a bit of a space saver. One potential big flaw in my humble opinion is that there are two posts and two BR discs sit on each post so you have media "stacked" on each other instead of 4 separate posts like other 4 disc sets. I own all the individual movies and bought this to keep at my fiancees apt so I can watch them if I'm so inclined. Personally I prefer the individual sets with their art and cases but this is good from a budget standpoint, just be careful with the disc handling.
Bogey on Blu Ray - The stuff that dreams are made of! June 27 2014
By M. Damron - Published on Amazon.com

If you haven't already picked up these classics individually on Blu Ray, then this set is a great opportunity to grab them all at a great price. 4 legendary films. 4 legendary roles. And all look incredible in high definition. Casablanca is packed with extras, as it should be. Hollywood's greatest star at his best.
