Humphrey [=DeForest=] Bogart (December 25, 1899 January 14, 1957) was an American actor whose performances in 1940s [[FilmNoir films noir]] earned him status as a cultural icon.

Bogart was born 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 spending much of the 1930s as a minor contract player on the Warner Brothers lot, 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.

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 Creator/KatharineHepburn, Creator/BetteDavis, Creator/IngridBergman, Creator/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.

At the time of his death from cancer in 1957, Bogart was one of the most respected figures in American cinema. Since his death, his persona and film performances have been considered as having a lasting impact and have led to him being described as a cultural icon. In 1997, Entertainment Weekly magazine named him the number one movie legend of all time. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked him the Greatest Male Star of All Time. He made [[Film/TheAfricanQueen one movie]] with AFI's number one on their female list, Creator/KatharineHepburn; offscreen, the two were part of the same social circle and were also close friends.

The term "Bogart," used to mean "hoard" (as in, "stop Bogarting that joint, give it to me") comes from how Bogart's characters would often be seen holding lit cigarettes, but would rarely actually take a puff.

He also makes appearances in several ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts, including one where Elmer Fudd hits him in the face with a coconut custard pie with whipped cream.

!!Tropes relating to Bogart's work and cultural appereance include:

%%Please do not add any solely personal tropes. This page is for his works.

* AntiHero: Great part of his roles.
* BadassLongcoat: Frequently. Can make a strong claim to being the TropeCodifier.
* CatchPhrase: 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."
* ChronicallyKilledActor: Like his contemporaries, Edward G. Robinson and James 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:''The Treasure of the Sierra Madre'']].
* 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.
* DeadpanSnarker: His specialty. Even Bogart's FamousLastWords ("Goodbye, kid. Hurry back.") rang of his trademark wit.
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: Often a running gag with his characters. Although not a PintSizePowerhouse kind of short, with many men in Hollywood over six feet tall, Bogart at 5'8 was on the shorter size. In some movies, characters reference this or call the trope by name, and Bogart's response is often that he's NeverHeardThatOneBefore.
* FedoraOfAsskicking: His characters tended to wear a fedora, and awesomeness followed them.
* FilmNoir: Does it star Humphrey Bogart? Then yes, it ''is'' film noir.
* KnightInSourArmor: A good rule of thumb in his films is that 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 on Christmas Day 1899) and was typically quite a gentleman, espousing some long forgotten Victorian ideals.
* MrFanservice: Unintentionally actually: he was not conventionally handsome but he had strong sex appeal (by projecting 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.
* PrivateDetective: TropeCodifier with his playing the quintessential PI in ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' and ''Film/TheBigSleep'', which were movie versions of two of the best hardboiled crime novels.
* ScullyBox: Various tricks were used to conceal his height, from Creator/IngridBergman having to slouch during the filming of ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' to switching out his character's firearms, using a smaller .32 when a .45 looked too larger in his hands.
* SmokingIsCool: Hoo, boy. You know that you're asociated with smoking when your last name becomes shorthand for hoarding a cigarette. Rather unironically what killed him, as he died of esophageal cancer in 1957.
