* 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.

Humphrey [=DeForest=] Bogart was born in 1899 to Belmont [=DeForest=] Bogart, a New York society doctor of Knickerbocker descent, and his wife, society illustrator Maud Humphrey. After being kicked out of Andover Academy (one of the most prestigious schools in New England), Humphrey did a stint in the Navy as a military policeman near the end of World War One, gaining his trademark scar (and lisp) from a sailor's fist [[note]]There are varying stories as to how Bogie got his scar and lisp, that's just one of them [[/note]]. 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 Academy Award; ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'', and ''Literature/TheCaineMutiny''. During a film career of almost thirty years, he appeared in 75 feature films.

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, AvaGardner, 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.
