Some months after Bogie’s death, Max Wilk, spotted Bacall off by herself at a party in Bel Air and went over to her. She wouldn’t remember him, he began hesitantely, because the last time they had met he was in an Army uniform.
"And where was that?" she asked listlessly.
" At your house. I brought you a dog."
"Oh, God! Harvey! He was the best! We loved him madly."
When she began to cry, Wilk realized they were discussing much more than the dog he had brought by train from Chicago to Los Angeles as a wedding present for Humphrey Bogart and his young bride.
