Patdges? Patdges? We don't need no stinkin' patdges!

I've been having a great time watching Humphrey Bogart in the last few months. I always had an interest in Casablanca but I've widened my search.

I'm looking for recommendations if it pleases the jury.

So far I've seen:

The Treasure of Sierra Madre
Casablanca
Key Largo
The Big Sleep
(surely ripped off by The Big Lebowski?)
The Maltese Falcon
The African Queen


Got coming:

Beat The Devil
Dead Reckoning


So, what am I missing? Needn't be classics, but I'm still expecting quality Bogart.

No problem; BTW, I mentioned in that thread that Wyler's Dead End wasn't on DVD. It is, of course, now - there's a thread here which includes a look at the R1 and of course there's also an R2 disc available.

I love Sabrina - or Sabrina Fair - which offers Bogart in an unfamiliar guise but it's a sublime romantic comedy and you also get Billy Wilder, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden, too! Far, far better IMO than those macho Huston pix which end in hollow laughter.

I really want to see the film where he plays an evil doctor/mad scientist. I've seen a clip somewhere but can't remember where. It's called Dr. X or something similar [definately has X in the title] it looked..... different

The Return of Doctor X (1939) "When a reporter discovers a dead woman, he calls in the story to his newspaper. Unfortunately, the body vanishes and the woman later turns up alive. The reporter eventually discovers that the woman was treated by a mysterious doctor and his suspicious assistant"

When I first heard of it, I wondered why I couldn't find an earlier film called "Dr X". Doesn't take much to confuse me.

He's actually a vampire, if I recall correctly. There is, however, an earlier film called "Doctor X" which stars Lionel Atwill.

From IMDB: Humphrey Bogart said of this film: "This is one of the pictures that made me march in to Jack Warner and ask for more money again. You can't believe what this one was like. I had a part that somebody like Bela Lugosi or Boris Karloff should have played. I was this doctor, brought back to life, and the only thing that nourished this poor ******* was blood. If it had been Jack Warner's blood, or Harry's, or Pop's, maybe I wouldn't have minded as much. The trouble was, they were drinking mine and I was making this stinking movie."

You learn something new every day ... Is "Return" a direct sequel then? The two films aren't linked on IMDB's "movie connections" page, which was why I never picked up on the original.

No, it's not; nothing to do with it, a bit like all those 'Django' sequels...

Please excuse my utter stupidity and ignorance but would some linquist-anorak out there enlighten me regarding "patdges"? I'm all at sea, at sixes and sevens, dressed up to the nines, with nowhere to go except to messily thumb through in the loo.

Adding two and two, it's patently obvious that Gerrard has a speech defect which others here of a more diplomatic nature turned a blind eye to...for shame Armbruster!

I think Gerrard was making a vaguely phonetic transcription of how the line is spoken.

I know that, Armbruster knows that, but maybe the joke was a little too obtuse (for 'obtuse' read 'lame')...

Now I'm horrified by the thought that Gerrard has actually got a speech defect - say it ain't so Gerrard!
