The Big Sleep, Two Guys from Milwaukee, Dark Passage and Key Largo.

... that Humphrey's most memorable role, Casablanca's Rick Blaine, was originally developed for Ronald Reagan. You can learn more in our Tribute to Casablanca.

Starting with The Maltese Falcon (pictured here), these "men's men" would go on to make seven more films, including: Across the Pacific, The African Queen, Beat the Devil, In This Our Life, Key Largo and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

    ... Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall worked together in a radio series called Bold Venture. You can listen to them here.

    ... that you can watch Humphrey Bogart in a very rare television appearance on the Jack Benny show. He plays ( of course) a bad guy in a very funny sketch.




    ... Although this is a picture of the 1960's Rat Pack as most people know it (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and Sammy Davis Jr.)the original Rat Pack dates back to the 1950's and included Humphrey Bogart, Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall, David Niven, Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant. Humphrey Bogart is generally acknowledged as the founding member of what was then called the Holmby Hills Rat Pack possibly named by Lauren Bacall who told them they looked like a pack of rats after a night of hard drinking.

    ... that of course Humphrey Bogart was included in the Postal Services Legends of Hollywood series. He was the third star honored following Marilyn Monroe and James Dean.

    ... If you miss seeing Humphrey Bogart you might enjoy watching him walk into a club to see Elton John play. Of course it's one of those commercials with dead people in it that we're not sure is a good idea. The Bogie images were clipped from the 1942 movie All Through the Night
