The Man with Bogart’s Face

Clearly and intentionally the picture is a gimmick. Bogart look-alike Robert Sacchi plays Bogart as Bogart himself might have portrayed private eye Sam Marlow, always relating incidents and personalities to stars and films of yesteryear. Producer Andrew J. Fenady, whose script is based on his own novel, has sprinkled his involved plot with a continuous flow of laugh lines. It adds up to a lot of fun.

As the film opens, the star has just undergone facial surgery, and immediately sets up shop as a private eye, hiring Misty Rowe as his luscious but scatterbrained secretary.

The action # and there is plenty of it # is played against some handsome backgrounds, including expensive yachts and the palace-like home of Turkish magnate Franco Nero, with his bevy of belly dancers.
