Holiday Bogart

Turner Classic Movies channel is featuring the films of Humphrey Bogart this month of December--also his birthday month. I'm disappointed that they are not airing 1955's We're No Angels. This is a rare glimpse at Bogie in a comedy film and a Christmas movie as well. Along with co-stars Peter Ustinov and Aldo Ray, Devil's Island prison escapee Bogie sings a song about three angels for the Christmas dinner entertainment to the family the three convicts are staying with. Fortunately, this film is easily available on DVD. See also pg 25 of the book for my discussion of this film.
