Humphrey Bogart was born to a rich doctor and his artist wife in New York City in 1899. Bogart attended Phillips Exeter Academy
but left in order to enlist in the United States. He was given an honorable discharge after less than one year of service . Bogie drifted into a series of unprofitable jobs which ended in his work at as Broadway actor. Bogart spent many years on the stage managing to marry and divorce three women. Bogart could be argumentative and difficult. He was an alcoholic but always knew his lines and showed up on time for rehearsals and filming.
Bogart was hired at Warners where he played in tough guys roles until the blockbusters of High Sierra;' The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca lifted him to stardom. He is listed in several polls as the greatest American actor in film. Bogart was twice nominated for Best Actor for his iconic role as Rick Blaine in Casablanca and Charley Allnut in The African Queen. He won the Oscar for the Allnut role with Katharine Hepburn as his leading lady.
Bogart found domestic happiness with his fourth wife Lauren Bacall. He starred with her in such vehicles as To Have and Have Not'; Dark Passage and Key Largo. The couple had two children but Bogart died of cancer in 1957.
As a longtime Bogart fan I did not find much I did not already know already about the actor in this concise biography. I found the pictures in the book and the bibliography to be helpful. A good little book on a great big star!
