Humphrey Bogart


Humphrey Bogart, player of the hard-boiled cynic who ultimately shows his noble side.

He appeared in more than seventy-five feature films.

His mother, Maud, was a militant suffragette, and (according to Wikipedia) studied with Whistler.

Bogart became a first-time father at the age of forty-nine, when Lauren Bacall gave birth to Stephen, in 1949. Three years later a daughter was born, Lesley Howard Bogart. Named after Lesley Howard, as it says on the tin.

You can see the whole piece here.

The square was cut from a picture from the film, Dark Passage (1947), in which he stars with Bacall. Cinematography by Sidney Hickox. The image belongs to The Kobal Collection. I cut it from Hollywood Guide To Romance by Myrna P Barnum (friend of the stars). Ebury Press, 2002.
