happy birthday bogie!


Humphrey DeForest Bogart

(December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957)

“I’m not good-looking. I used to be but not any more…. What I have got is I have character in my face. It’s taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, ‘Don’t take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.’”


“He walked straight down the centre of the road-
No maybes. Yes or no.
He liked to drink. He drank.
He like to sail a boat.He sailed a boat.
He was an actor. He was happy and proud to be an actor.
He’d say to me ‘Are you comfortable? Everything O.K?’
He was looking out for me. 
'Need anything?' 
To put it simple: There was no bunk about Bogie. He was a man.

-Katharine Hepburn, 1987
