I enjoyed your two short blog posts, Bruce Doe. Just letting you know there is a bit Humprhey Bogart Festival down here in the Upper Keys, May 2-5, 2013:

KEY LARGO, Florida Keys — Legendary film icon Humphrey Bogart is to be celebrated May 2-5, 2013, in the setting of one of his most famous movies.

The inaugural Humphrey Bogart Film Festival is to mark 65 years since the premiere of the movie "Key Largo," starring Bogart and his wife Lauren Bacall, which was partially filmed on the island at the top of the Florida Keys archipelago.

Celebrating the life and films of the man the American Film Institute named "America's greatest male screen legend," the festival is the only event of its kind to be backed by the Bogart Estate, which is producing the event in partnership with the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce.

"We have long been looking for a natural home for a family-backed Bogie film fest, and we believe there is no better place than Key Largo," said Stephen Humphrey Bogart, son of the iconic performer.

"My father and mother starred in 'Key Largo' and the actual boat from 'The African Queen' is here in Key Largo," Bogart said. "It just feels right to honor my father and his movies in this beautiful place, which has such an organic connection to his legacy."

Also, if any of you film buffs make it to Key Largo (about 110 minutes North of Key West) you may as well drive down to "Bone Island" itself and see Florida's Number One Rated Cinema, the Tropic Cinema:

P.S. Rude patrons don't exist in this place because the whole community supports a "real" communal experience when watching film together. No one talks out loud. No cellphones on. No drunks. Etc. Oh yeah, and no teenagers or kids allowed in there, unless it is a school outing during the day. It is heaven.
