Humphrey Bogart – The Essential Collection on DVD

I like getting box sets that are so full of content that I want to watch that I feel overwhelmed. This month I have been trying to watch lots of Halloween films, but I keep finding myself pulled into the movies of Humphrey Boagart. Why? Because I got me a copy of “Humphrey Bogart – The Essential Collection”. The set puts together 24 of Bogart’s best films in one place and when you have this much content in one place it is hard to resist. With this DVD set you get:

* Petrified Forest/ Marked Woman
* Kid Galahad/ Black Legion
* The Roaring Twenties/ San Quentin
* Dark Victory/ Virginia City
* Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse/ Invisible Stripes
* High Sierra/ They Drive by Night
* Maltese Falcon/ Across the Pacific
* All Through the Night/ Brother Orchid
* Action in the North Atlantic/ Passage to Marseille
* To Have and Have Not/ The Big Sleep
* Dark Passage/ Key Largo
* Casablanca/Treasure of Sierra Madre
* Brothers Warner, The (DVD) (Bonus Disc)

In addition it includes:
* A set of 10 Photo Cards of Classic One-Sheets
* Rare Archival Studio Correspondence
* A 48-Page Book of Photos and Movie Info

Here is my problems with this set. Some of the movies I already own (which is always a problem when you are buying sets) and others I would prefer to own on Blu-Ray (3 I already do). This set though has enough content on it that it is great for that newly minted Bogart fan, who maybe watched Casablanca for the first time and is ready for an instant collection or for the person who owns maybe 1 or 2 of the films and is ready to take that next step. For those people (maybe you are 1 of them), this set is a deal. So if you are getting horror film fatigue, I know I am, why not consider this essential collection. You can pick it up at The Warner Archive or Amazon.
