The Dogcast: A Little “Bold Venture” For Some Bogie/Bacall Adventure On The High Seas!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some classic adventure with one of the silver screen’s all time great couples. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were one of Hollywood’s great love stories. Having met on the classic film “To Have And Have Not” they fell in love and were married until his death in 1957. They appeared together in films (most notably in “To Have And Have Not” and “The Big Sleep”) but they also did a radio series together during 1951. It was called “Bold Venture” and starred Bogie as Slate Shannon (what a great name!) as the owner of a hotel in Havana and a boat called “The Bold Venture.” Bacall stars as his lady Sailor Duval. Both are similar to their characters in “To Have And Have Not” and that’s not accidental. The two episodes I have are a lot of fun and feature that crackling Bogie and Bacall chemistry!
