Humphrey Bogart

Named by AFI as the best actor of the century, what more can you say about him. Bogart starred in a number of all-time film classics such as ‘The Maltese Falcon’ (1941), ‘Casablanca’ (1942), and ‘To Have and Have Not’ (1944). He won an Oscar as Best Actor for his role of ‘Charlie Allnut’ in the 1951 John Huston classic ‘The African Queen,’ co-starring Katharine Hepburn. He met, and later married, actress Lauren Bacall on the set of ‘To Have and Have Not,’ the first of four films in which they starred together. He died of lung cancer, likely due to his heavy smoking habit. Bogart founded the gang of friends that later became known as ‘The Rat Pak’. Cremated and interred behind a locked garden gate in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California.
