Writing with the encouragement of his famous mother, Lauren Bacall, Stephen calls on his memories as well as the access he had to friends and colleagues of his father. The result is an intimate and personal profile of an enigmatic man whose tough image contrasted with very human ambitions and vulnerabilities.
This vastly entertaining book is filled with fascinating stories involving Frank Sinatra, Katherine Hepburn, "Swifty" Lazar, John Huston, Jason Robards, and many others.

"Whitener's reading is straightforward and appealing. By the end, you feel as if someone has sat down with you and let you in on the behind-the-scenes action of some Hollywood's greatest figures." (KLIATT)
Clearly Mr Bogart's son , the author of this book , has paternal issues . I was hoping to learn more insights on his father's life rather than the author's own suppressed and self centered childhood problems which can be best described as "whiney" .
