The Bogart Film Affair Ep 3 – Beat the Devil

Pod PicHappy Thanksgiving everybody!

Not too much to write this week since I’m still sleeping off my tryptophan overdose, but enjoy this week’s installment of ‘The Bogart Film Affair’ podcast as we dive into Beat the Devil!

It’s a cult classic for sure, and if you enjoyed our post on Robert Morley last week, you’ll get another good dose of the big man here!

Please, please, please 🙂 If you’ve got time, give it a rating on iTunes, good or bad, and if you have even more spare time, a podomatic review wouldn’t hurt either!

The Bogart Film Affair Podcast Ep 2 – The Return of Doctor X!

Pod PicThis week on The Bogart Film Affair podcast, we dive into one of my greatest finds while doing the blog – 1939’s The Return of Doctor X!

It’s Wayne Morris, Rosemary Lane, Dennis Morgan, John Litel, and, of course, Humphrey Bogart as an undead mad scientist, under the direction of Vincent Sherman giving us a campy dose of Horror.

Now…I’ve seen the film quite a few times – I dare say, perhaps more than anyone else on earth…and after just re-listening to this episode before posting it, I still got confused by my recap of the plot…so be warned! This one is not for the faint of heart!

You can find The Bogart Film Affair podcast by searching for it on iTunes or by clicking here, or on here.

Thanks for all of your great feedback on the first episode! Please drop me an email with your thoughts about the show at, on twitter @bogiefilmblog, or you could be SUPER DUPER awesome and rate/review the podcast on iTunes!



The Bogart Film Affair

Pod Pic

In lieu of the typical blog post this week, we have a fun announcement from here at ‘The Bogie Film Blog’ headquarters. This week we’re kicking off the release of ‘The Bogart Film Affair,’ a bi-monthly (with occasional bonus episodes) podcast highlighting the films, costars, radio appearances, and directors from Bogart’s career. So, from this point forward, the blog will more than likely also go bi-monthly, switching back and forth between a blog post and a podcast each week.

Why a podcast you ask? That’s a valid question! To be honest, it was always an early dream when I started the blog to someday jump into the world of podcasting. I absolutely LOVE to read Classic Film blogs, but due to my two-job/family/travel schedules, I’m always a month or two behind on my blog subscriptions. I do, however, spend a lot of time in the car and occasionally on airplanes and I listen to hundreds of hours of podcasts a year.

There’s something very satisfying to me about listening to someone talk about one of my niche interests for awhile – especially the niche interests that most of my friends and family don’t share. It’s as if I get to have a conversation (albeit one-sided) with someone about a topic that I don’t get to talk about very often.

I’ve become very thankful for all of the blog followers, Twitter friends, interviewees, and email pals that I’ve built up since starting the blog, and I’m hoping that at least a few of them will enjoy a twice-a-month conversation with me on Bogart’s career.

This first episode focuses on All Through the Night, which was the first film I ever wrote up for the blog. It’s just under 25 minutes, and I hope you’ll enjoy it. If nothing else, you get to put a voice to the writing on this site, and you also get to laugh every time the heat ventalation kicks on and off in the background. The audio is not perfect, and it does improve upon further episodes, but it is on par or better than a few of the other podcasts I listen to.

For a few episodes, it’ll just be me talking – but I hope to get some real live guests on the show sooner than later! (Anybody want to do a live recording in which we sample Bogart’s soon-to-be-released gin?)

So take a listen. Subscribe if you’re kind enough. Leave a positive comment if you’re feeling especially generous. I hope to have as much fun and meet as many new people with the podcast as I have with the blog! Some of you Twitter folks who responded to my questions a few weeks ago also get a mention!

You can find ‘The Bogart Film Affair’ here on iTunes, or just by searching for the name.
