He drifted into acting in the early 1920s and became a regular in Broadway productions, often playing society fops. The 1929 stock market crash forced many Broadway theatres to close, but the real impetus behind Bogart's move to Hollywood and movies was the crash's effect on his family's finances; his father had been bankrupted, leaving Bogart's mother and disabled sister almost destitute and Bogart himself without a safety net. After some years of toiling in obscurity, his first great success was as the ferocious Duke Mantee in ''The Petrified Forest'', which led to a period of typecasting as a gangster in B-movies. His breakthrough came in 1941 with ''Film/HighSierra'' and ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon''. The next year, his performance as Rick Blaine in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' raised him to the peak of his profession and at the same time, cemented his trademark film persona, that of the hard-boiled cynic who ultimately shows his noble side. Other successes followed, including ''Film/ToHaveAndHaveNot'', ''Film/TheBigSleep'', ''Film/DarkPassage'', and ''Film/KeyLargo'', with his wife Creator/LaurenBacall (whom he married on friend Creator/PeterLorre's advice); ''Film/TheTreasureOfTheSierraMadre''; ''Film/TheAfricanQueen'', opposite Creator/KatharineHepburn, for which he won his only UsefulNotes/AcademyAward; ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'', and ''Literature/TheCaineMutiny''. During a film career of almost thirty years, he appeared in 75 feature films.

!!Tropes relating to Bogart and his work include:
* TheAlcoholic
** When Bogart was in front of a judge on a trumped-up personal assault charge for a 4 AM restaurant altercation, the judge asked him if he was drunk. He said, "At 4 in the morning, isn't everyone?"
** He and director Creator/JohnHuston were the only two people working on ''Film/TheAfricanQueen'' who didn't succumb to a bout of dysentery. It's because they didn't drink much besides whiskey.
*** Despite this, Huston was always quick to point out that Bogart wasn't an alcoholic, at least in the sense that most people understand the term.

his works.



* ButtMonkey: Despite having a breakthrough performance in ''Film/ThePetrifiedForest'', Warner Bros refused to make him a big star similar to the studios' contract players, Creator/EdwardGRobinson and Creator/JamesCagney, instead relegating Bogart to B-movie gangster roles where he gets killed at the end. It wasn't until ''Film/HighSierra'' and ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'', both released in 1941, finally made him a star, with ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' fully cementing his status.
* CatchPhrase: "God damn it!" whenever he flubbed a line.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: Like his contemporaries, Robinson and Cagney, he had a habit of getting gunned down onscreen very often early in his career; less so following his foray into "heroic" roles, although still present in films where his character's motives deteriorate, such as [[spoiler:''Film/TheTreasureOfTheSierraMadre'']].
* DeadArtistsAreBetter: Almost universally regarded, now, as the greatest movie star who ever lived. He was a big star during his lifetime, but at the time he wasn't any bigger than Gable, Robinson, etc.
** In fact before ''Film/HighSierra'' the producers at Warner Bros didn't think he could even play a leading man. So Bogart found himself constantly having to work hard for fame and recognition and to get the roles he really wanted, whereas guys like Gable and Robinson, and a few more that you probably never heard of, simply got fame handed to them with one good picture.

One of the many things that are part of ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'''s legacy is giving him several, such as "Play it again, Sam" and "Here's looking at you, kid."

to:

* FedoraOfAssKickingFedoraOfAsskicking: His characters tended to wear a fedora, and awesomeness followed them.



* KnightInSourArmor: Underneath all that cynicism beats the heart of a knight. [[Film/TheTreasureOfTheSierraMadre Most of the time.]]
** According to his wife he was a little bit like this in real life as well. Bogie referred to himself as a last century man (being born Christmas 1899) and was typically quite a gentleman, espousing some long forgotten Victorian ideals.
* MatzoFever: Had it for Creator/LaurenBacall, whom he married.
* MayDecemberRomance: His marriage to Creator/LaurenBacall.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Bogart infamously played a lot of gangsters and rough heroes, but off-screen, despite a few mean moments, such as his and Creator/JohnHuston's prank on Alfonso Bedoya while making ''The Treasure of the Sierra Madre'', he made a lot of friends in Hollywood and was well-liked.
** He was forever grateful to LeslieHoward for fighting to get Bogart to replay his gangster role for the film version of ''Film/ThePetrifiedForest'', and was heart-broken when Howard died.
* MrFanservice: Unintentionally actually: he was not conventionally handsome but he had strong sex appeal (strong force of personality). Funnily enough, when he first tried to break into Hollywood, one studio executive told him to 'Go back to Broadway and stay there' because he felt that Bogart didn't have the face to be in movies.
* NiceHat: Admit it, his fedora is awesome.
** They named that type of fedora The Bogart Fedora, because he popularized it.

* SmokingIsCool: Hoo, boy. Rather unironically what killed him [[note]] He died of oesophageal cancer in early 1957 [[/note]]
* SympatheticAdulterer: His third wife Mayo Methot was an alcoholic and violently so, once stabbing him with a glass bottle. In addition she was often afraid that he was having affairs with his co-stars (particularly Creator/IdaLupino and Creator/IngridBergman), which ironically he never did until he met Lauren Bacall. Once he divorced Methot she succumbed to alcoholism and depression until she finally died in 1951. When Bogart heard the news, his only response was 'Such a waste'.
* WhiteAngloSaxonProtestant: Despite his streetwise demeanor, the Episcopalian-reared Bogart was raised in patrician surroundings (e.g., attended the elite Phillips Andover Academy, grew up on the Upper West Side, father was a prominent medical doctor, etc) He was nevertheless quite a rebel, getting expelled from school and spending most of his time in the '20s (and his 20s) getting drunk in speakeasies and getting into fights. Not your typical WASP.
