4 movies , I havent seen 3 of them, having just seen Tokyo Joe, which ok, but not a keeper for me...

Being a Bogart fan I have to see Joe, Sirocco, & Sahara - my co-worker says they are all ok, but nothing special

Arsenic & Old Lace is supposed to be a goodie ...

Anyone have anything to comment on this quartet of classics >

I am a Big Bogart fan and Love almost anything with him in it, Sahara is very good, I've seen it a couple of times, and enjoyed it, I haven't seen the others so I can't speak for them If you get the chance see Sahara,, The original, not the remake,,, Arsenic and old lace is good too...

I'd say both Sirocco and Tokyo Joe are average, but nothing special. Sahara is one of my favorite WWII movies. Bogie is fine and it has a great supporting cast and Arsenic is, in my book, great comedy. I must have seen it at least 20 times and I laugh just as hard every time.Well worth checking out.

Sahara is awesome and is essential Bogart. I love that movie so much. Tokyo Joe is ok. I have the dvd cuz l love bogie. Sirocco is not that good but entertaining if u like Bogie. Arsenic and Old Lace is an essential!

 

But I highly recommend Sahara. It is one of the best world war 2 movies made during the war.

The underrated SAHARA's one of my favorite war movies, and second-favorite Bogart film. The picture features a great score by Mikl?s R?zsa who, that same year, 1943, wrote a better score for Billy Wilder & Charles Brackett''s FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO, a similarly-themed film that's even better than Zolt?n Korda's SAHARA.

 

PS: Unusual as it may be, the transfer of SAHARA that TCM shows actually looks better than the pre-recorded DVD issued by Columbia (they're obviously different transfers, and I've compared them side-by-side). You can save yourself $20 by recording the film the next time TCM airs it.
