* 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.



* ChronicallyKilledActor: 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'']].

Despite being, arguably, not mainstream Hollywood and showing disdain for the general 'Movie star attitude' (he hated phonies), Bogart, in his capacity as a leading man and even a bit before that, got to work with many of the major female stars of the period, including Katharine Hepburn, Creator/BetteDavis, Creator/IngridBergman, Ava Gardner, Creator/AudreyHepburn, etc. He was also pretty connected to many of the major male stars through the Rat Pack and his funeral was a veritable "Who's who" of Hollywood.

** He and director John Huston 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.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Bogart infamously played a lot of gangsters and rough heroes, but off-screen, despite a few mean moments, such as his and John Huston'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.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Before graduating to leading man status, he was often praised for his portrayal of the archetypal gangster character.

* OldShame: He reportedly hated his role in ''The Return of Doctor X'' with a fiery passion.



* ScullyBox: At 5'8", he was average height (for the time), but while filming ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' he had to stand on blocks to kiss 5'9" Ingrid Bergman. He wasn't the only one, Charles Boyer also had to stand on a box for {{Film/Gaslight}}



* ThoseTwoActors: Him and Creator/LaurenBacall.
** Also him and Creator/BetteDavis (they made at least four films together before he was really famous), him and Edward G Robinson, and a combination of him, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre (either one of them or both).
* TypeCasting: His first experience with typecasting was in the theatre, where he was typecast as (we kid you not) the archetypical effeminate, snotty RichIdiotWithNoDayJob. His success years later in ''The Petrified Forest'' led him to be re-typecast as a thug. Then, when he'd finally ducked that with performances in ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' and ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', the studios stereotyped him ''again'', this time as a tough, wisecracking JerkWithAHeartOfGold. ''To Have and Have Not'' is great, but ''Tokyo Joe'' and ''Sirocco'' are among his weaker movies; Bogie does what he can, but there was more to ''Casablanca'' than Rick, which the studios forgot. His charisma makes the films pretty watchable nonetheless.

* DeadArtistsAreBetter: Almost universally regarded, now, as the greatest actor who ever lived. He was a big star during his lifetime, but at the time he wasn't any bigger than Gable, Robinson, etc.
