5.0 out of 5 stars Sam Marlow in "The Eyes of Alexander" June 14, 2008
All Bogie fans, in fact ALL lovers of classics should see THE MAN WITH BOGART'S FACE. It stars Robert Sacchi, who is an uncanny double for Mr. B. in size, face, hair, mannerisms and voice. Watching him in this movie is like seeing Bogie alive again.

The story opens at a plastic surgeon's office. The gauze wrappings are removed from our hero's face; he sits in front of a TV that's showing the last scene of THE MALTESE FALCON. As the surgically-created Bogart examines his visage in the mirror with a characteristic twitch, we hear Bogie's famous "you're going over/because you're partners" soliloquy coming from the nearby television.

"Bogart's Face" is packed with references to classic cinema, both spoken and visually. The climactic house of mirrors shootout in Orson Welles' THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI is reenacted at Hollywood's famous Wax Museum. Sacchi's character, hard-boiled detective Sam Marlow, talks incessantly about old films. He'll do something, like throw a sword into the ceiling, and then remark: "Tyrone Power did that in THE MARK OF ZORRO.

Michelle Phillips is the woman private eye Marlow is obsessed with. He thinks of her as Gene Tierney in LAURA, in fact, he even calls her Laura one time by mistake. Marlow drives an early 40s sedan and lives in a trench coat (naturally).

Actors in the film represent those from Bogart classics, such as Victor Buono playing Sidney Greenstreet and Herbert Lom as Peter Lorre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and lightweight... May 31, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Andy Fenaday's scipt follows self-employed detective (Scacchi, who's incredible) as he gets wrapped up in a MALTESE FALCON-type mystery. Heavy doses of amusing dialog, crammed with old movie references, this movie is better than FLETCH. A lot of fun and worth repeated viewings. A must for movie buffs. Good family viewing, with older kids. Rated PG for profanity, violence, and mild sexual innuendo.

3.0 out of 5 stars A sweet bit of noir May 10, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Robert Sacchi attained minor celebrity in the 70's and 80's for his uncanny resemblance to Bogie and parlayed it into a career in TV commercials and cameo movie roles, most notably in Woody Allen's PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM. This vehicle is built around his unique "gift." It's an unremarkable but highly likable send-up of the great private eye flicks from the 30's and 40's - its most obvious inspiration being THE MALTESE FALCON, but there are allusions to THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI and other classics as well.It is chock full of hard-boiled banter and shadowy frames and shadowy characters and probably would have been better shot in black and white to capture the true ambience and ambiguities of the originals it seeks to imitate.
Same Marlowe is hired to find "the eyes of Alexander", sapphire replicas of Alexander the Great's eyes used in a bust of the conqueror, and during the search he runs into a snag of competing interests, all played by well-known character actors, Victor Buono and Herbert Lom among them. The plot, however, is superfluous, as it almost always is in detective films. The real point of the movie is to pay tribute to old time movie magic, and part of its fun is in the cameos. Apart from bit parts by the likes of George Raft, watch out for appearances by famed Hollywood reporters James Bacon and Robert Osborne as well (the latter now the host of cable's Turner Classic Movies).

5.0 out of 5 stars Michelle Phillips PLUS Sybil Danning!!! July 3, 2005
I first saw this movie in an almost empty cinema back in 1980 when I was 20. My how Time flies!!! The cinema next door was packed with yuppies of dubious and questionable sexuality who were watching The Village People in "Can't Stop The Music". Robert Sacchi does a very good impersonation of Humphey Bogart and Michelle Phillips is equally impressive as Gene Tierney. As per usual Sybil Danning takes off her clothes(Thank God).Now it is 25 years later and I STILL am not embarrassed to tell anybody which movie I saw that day unlike the guys who were in the cinema next to me!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Film Noir Movie February 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A throwback to the old movies - with an uncanny resemblance to major holywood file legends - mostly Humphrey Bogart.

Robert Sacchi bears a striking resemblence to Humphrey Bogart. He has many of the mannerisms of Bogey down pat.

Michelle Phillips does a very good likeness of a Gene Tierney.

Plot is a lot of fun and there are laughs aplenty at times - all intentional.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good adpation of a fun novel November 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's been a quite a few years since I saw this film, but it held up quite well. I first read the novel when it was published. I read it a few times, then the film came and went a few years later. I missed it in it's original release, but caught it later on at a revival house. Being that the original author Andrew J. Fenney produced this film and wrote the screenplay it stayed very faithful to the novel. Fenney who worked on the John Wayne "HOndo" and produced the TV series version of it is a movie buff and the novel and film are both filled with movie trivia.

When the film opens our main character has just had plastic surgery to make himself look like Humphrey Bogart (p[layed by Bogart lookalike Robert Sacchi) He assumes the name of Sam Marlow, and hires a blond secretary who by his discription, "Looks like Marilyn Monroe and makes as much sence as Gracie Allen", she's played by Missy Rowe, who once played Marilyn in a film. He then gets too cases, one his hired by his landlady to find her missing boyfriend, the other mystery is sort of on the order of the Maltese Falcon. After being hired by Elsa (Olivia Hussey) Borcht to protect her father Horst (Helmet Dantine) Borscht, Horst Borscht is killed. The he finds out it has to do with some missing blue Diamonds called The Eyes Of Alexander that many people want to aquire. The suspects include Mr. Zebra (Herbert Lom), who's very much a Joel Cairo type as played by Peter Lorre in "The Maltese Falcon". Then there is pretty Gina Anastis, who loos like Gene Tierney and is played by Michelle Phillips. She brings him to her father (Victor Buono) who is very much in the Sidney Greenstreet vain. You also have Akim (Franco Nero) in the Zachery Scot vain.
