HASH(0xa880bde0) out of 5 stars Bogie's Finest in Neat New Blu-ray Box Set March 22 2014
By The Movie Man - Published on
"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.

HASH(0xb44fd294) out of 5 stars Excellent films , budget packaging April 4 2014
By Richardson - Published on
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.

HASH(0xb44ef018) out of 5 stars Bogey on Blu Ray - The stuff that dreams are made of! June 27 2014

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.

HASH(0xb44fd4d4) out of 5 stars Fantastic Blu Ray Set !!!!!! April 8 2015
By Richard C. Leighton - Published on
Verified Purchase
Fantastic Blu Ray Set. Clear and sharp images. Black Levels excellent. I had Treasure of Sierra Madre on VHS - was going to purchase on DVD a few years ago - So very Glad I waited. I wanted African Queen for years - Now I have it and what a high quality transfer. Maltese Falcon - great story and well acted. Casablanca was a to be watched and purchased for some time - So now I have all four - Thanks Warner Bros for putting them on Blu Ray. Looking forwards having Key Largo, To Have and Have Not on Blu Ray as well. Perhaps a set released later this year?

HASH(0xa87b284c) out of 5 stars Don't buy if you plan to Vudu these in digital. June 17 2015
By St. A Boiler - Published on
Verified Purchase
You know exactly what you are getting from the content standpoint so it seems rather ridiculous to award "stars" to a collection that includes Casablanca. The movies here are all five star worthy and this is not a movie review website, it is a website where we come to look to purchase things and in this case it is a collection of Blu-Rays.

With that being said it would be hard to give this collection fewer than four stars simply because the content is so strong. But the packaging is not perfect and is not deserving of a perfect score. The reason, as noted is the decision to stack the discs which can easily lead to damage. I would note also that I purchased a similar collection at the same time, also stacked and when removing these it was very clear these discs are thinner, they clearly bent removing them, not so much that they didn't play but all were thinner.

My biggest beef was not with the packaging though but in the fact that I use Vudu (the Disc to Digital service supported by just about all major film companies) this lets you register your Blu-Ray discs and for a dollar keep them in the cloud (similar to I-Tunes, but far cheaper). Thus far I have done this with nearly 200 Blue Rays and have only had issues with two discs. But in this collection they did not recognize the digital rights to Casablanca or African Queen. It said the discs did not have the rights on them which is really odd. I am sure they are not bootlegs but they registered like they were bootlegs. So I was unable to get digital copies based on the rules the film companies have (understandable). So just be aware if you plan to purchase and transfer these to digital, unless you rip them to I-Tunes, you will not be able to do so, at least not for two of the best films.
