The Man With Bogart’s Face
In The Man With Bogart’s Face, an affectionate send-up of the Bogart detective films of the 1940’s, Robert Sacchi plays a man who idolizes Humphrey Bogart so much he has his features altered to look exactly like his idol.
He then opens up a detective agency under the name Sam Marlow (The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep). Sam hires the Duchess (Misty Rowe) as his secretary (Misty plays the part delightfully as a cross between Marilyn Monroe and Gracie Allen) and “Sam Marlow, Private Eye” is in business.
The Man with Bogart’s Face (also called Sam Marlowe, Private Eye) is a 1980 comedy film, released by 20th Century Fox and based on a novel of the same name. Andrew J. Fenady, author of the novel, produced the film and wrote the screenplay.
