The face may be familiar. The mystery is brand new.

In contemporary Hollywood, private investigator Sam Marlow gets plastic surgery to look like Humphrey Bogart and solves various cases just like Bogart’s silver-screen detective characters from the 1940s. —nufs68

A man with a fixation on Humphrey Bogart gets plastic surgery to make him look exactly like Bogart. Then he changes his name to Sam Marlowe (after Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe, two of Bogart’s most famous characters), hires a ditzy blonde secretary, and opens up a detective agency. His first case is one that would do Bogie proud… —Afterburner (

In The Man With Bogart’s Face, an affectionate send-up of the Bogart detective films of the 1940s, Robert Sacchi plays a man who idolizes Humphrey Bogart so much he has his features altered to look exactly like his idol. He then opens up a detective agency under the name Sam Marlowe (an amalgam of the names of Bogart’s characters from The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep). Sam hires the Duchess (Misty Rowe) as his secretary (“She looked like Marilyn Monroe and made about as much sense as Gracie Allen”) and “Sam Marlowe, Private Eye” is in business. Sam gets a meager response until a shooting puts his picture in the paper and business starts to flourish. Particularly attracted to Marlowe’s services are a collection of characters — Gena (Michelle Phillips), an attractive Gene Tierney type; Commodore Anastas (Victor Buono), a Greek shipping tycoon, and Sidney Greenstreet lookalike; and the mysterious Mr. Zebra (Herbert Lom doing a Peter Lorre imitation). They are all trying to find the famous Eyes of Alexander — a priceless set of stones from a statue of Alexander the Great. Also on hand are old Hollywood pros George Raft, Yvonne DeCarlo, and Mike Mazurki.

Plot: Spoilers?
A man calling himself Sam Marlowe (Robert Sacchi) has his face altered to resemble that of his idol, Humphrey Bogart, and then opens a detective agency. At first, he and his secretary Duchess (Misty Rowe) have a meager business, but things pick up after a shooting puts Sam’s picture in the paper. Some ruthless people, who are coincidentally also similar to characters in Bogart films (and played by Victor Buono, Herbert Lom, and Michelle Phillips), are after a priceless set of blue sapphires called the Eyes of Alexander (from a statue of Alexander the Great), and Marlowe and Duchess are caught in the middle of it all.
