July 10, 1944
I’LL ADMIT I am surprised that Humphrey Bogart’s suspension at Warners has gone on this long. Usually Bogey and the bosses kiss and make up by this time. But so far no armistice. In fact, John Garfield steps into Bogart’s role in “Nobody Lives Forever,” the racketeer opus.
Note: Bogart was under suspension at Warners from June 1944 to October, when he began work on “The Big Sleep.”
