Humphrey Bogart mor Karen
The son of a Manhattan surgeon and a magazine illustrator, Humphrey Bogart was educated at Trinity School, New York City, sent to Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, in preparation for medical studies at Yale. He was expelled from Phillips and joined the U.S. Naval Reserve. From 1920 to 1922, he managed a stage company owned by family friend William A. Brady (the father of actress Alice Brady), performing a variety of tasks at Brady's film studio in New York. After this, he began regular stage performances. Alexander Woollcott described his acting in a 1922 play as "inadequate". In 1930, he got a contract with Fox and his feature film debut in a ten-minute short, Broadway's Like That (1930), co-starring Ruth Etting and Joan Blondell. Fox released him after two years. After five more years of stage and minor film roles, he broke through with The Petrified Forest (1936) from Warner Bros.; he got the part over Edward G. Robinson only after the star, Leslie Howard, threatened Warners that he would quit unless accompanied Bogart were given the key role Duke Mantee, which he had played in the Broadway production (which Howard was also in). The film was a major success and led to a long-term contract with Warners. From 1936 to 1940 Bogart he appeared in 28 films, usually as a gangster, but twice in Westerns. His landmark year was 1941, with roles in such classics as High Sierra (1941) and then as Sam Spade in one of his most fondly remembered films, The Maltese Falcon (1941). These were followed by Casablanca (1942), The Big Sleep (1946) and Key Largo (1948). In 1947 he joined Lauren Bacall and other actors protesting the McCarthyite witch hunts of the House Un-American Activities Committee. He also formed his own production company, and the next year made The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948). "Bogey" received the Best Actor Academy Award for The African Queen (1951) and a nomination for Casablanca (1942) and as Captain Queeg in The Caine Mutiny (1954), a film made when he was already seriously ill. He died in his sleep at his Hollywood home following an operation for throat cancer.
