Bogie: A Life in Picturesby Judith Schlesinger
When Humphrey DeForest Bogart was born at the turn of the century into a wealthy yet neglectful household, it wasn't even a possibility that acting would become his livelihood. Acting never occurred to him as a profession until after he was discharged from the Navy. In his early roles, Bogie was typecast as the B-Movie anti-hero, playing the bad guy who always ended up dead and never got the girl, until his legendary performances in films like Casablanca and The African Queen secured for him a permanent place in the Hollywood pantheon.
