You Can't Beat Bogie
- Mercer Brady
Humphrey Bogart was an unforgettable man who made unforgettable movies. His unparalleled presence on screen is why I always come back to his films and performances. He simply stands out. He commands total attention of screen. He was wholly unique as a actor and one of the few still widely recognizable icons of his area. He epitomized the anti-hero and made it an accessible form of compelling character for storytelling. His iconic status was earned. Everyone should watch his films and know Humphrey Bogart.
"Here's to you babe"...!

Bogie was born too early. He would have made a more excellent 007, of the James Bond variety. It is a shame that the mutiny movie was not at the beginning of his movie career, maybe being made in the 60's. Bogie and Bacall, that says it all, like Frankie and Annette, but the former were much better actors than the latter. Too bad I was born too late, 1947, but at least with the good graces of TCM and Robert and Ted I get to enjoy the Bogie movies. Thank you all and especially to Ted Turner for the TCM channel. Proves he had more sense than to waste his fortune on a losing MLB ball team.
There are very few actors that could be described as irreplaceable. Bogie certainly qualifies as one of these unique few. When he was in a scene you could not take your eyes off him. This is what is referred to as star quality & Bogie had it in spades. Also, can you think of one of his roles( or films ) that has been re-made ? When Bogie put his stamp on a role it tended to stay done. There will never be another like him.
Humphrey Bogart- One of the Greats
Humphrey Bogart is my favorite actor. I think he should've won more than one oscar- definitely one for Casablanca. He will always be remembered and there will never be another like him. I agree with some of the reviews, he put his heart into every movie and you can tell. Every acting job he did was teriffic!!!
are you kidding?????
- andrea chisolm
bogie was the best not only in the film industry but in his life --it is so depressing to me to read about that "so called mistress"--it just doesn't jive--here's a man born into class as he had told somebody she couldn't buy class just wasn't something that you could do--different comments about his moral code in his previous marriages before lauren -he never cheated never he wouldn't even entertain that idea so this so called mistress story goes against his whole life why would he cheat on lauren bacall why -he probably would have said like paul newman "why go out for hamburger when he had steak at the house -bogie wouldn't even cheat on mayo for betty bacall -the whole "mistress" story just doesn't make sense--it goes against his whole life & his principles-so sorry for gentleman who said if he never saw another one of bogie's films again he wouldn't lose sleep over it--thats sad because bogie made film industry he was an integral part of it without him there would be no film industry--another thought on his personal life-besides not cheating he felt it an obligation to marry these women not just to have an affair or cohabitat--he had morals principles wish some of these "so called stars" of today had some of what bogie had-------
- Steve Lake
I read a book that detailed Bogarts early years in Hollywwod. In it their is a story about his first meeting with the director, John Ford. It is said that Ford took Bogart with him to a house of ill fame. When the madam saw how handsome the young Bogart was she joked, your so attractive we might not charge you for services.
ONE THE VERY BEST ACTOR TO EVER LIVE. HE POUR HIS HEART IN TO EVERY MOVIE HE WAS IN. MY FAVORITE MOVIE'S OF HUMPHREY BOGART IS CASABLANCA(should have won an oscar for leading role) the maltese falcon and african queen. THANK HUMPHREY BOGART.

Humphrey Bogart has inspired a web series...
- Jane McGregor
Humphrey Bogart is definitely one of the great stars of some of the most classic movies ever. He has inspired the web series at MovieParodyNetwork.com, which spoofs great film noir movies like Key Largo and Maltese Falcon. Just click on webisodes to enjoy!
The Best? You Bet!
Humphrey Bogart was hands down the best actor of all time. He had the face, the voice and the undeniable charismatic personality. I loved all his films. Long live Bogie!!!
best actor of all time in my opinion. i named my baby after him!
Not Bad, But Not Greatest
I don't think Bogie is the greatest actor ever, though I respect his body of work. To be sure, when you think of classic and iconic actors of Hollywood's Golden Age, the first one comes to mind is Bogie. But why? He's been in some great movies, but the movies aren't particularly better because of his performance. It is often a storyline or ensemble that makes his performance enjoyable. Many of his roles in his big movies are the same character--a down-on-his-luck guy with a big heart and an infallible moral code who manages to overcome life's obstacles. Nothing wrong there, but I don't see how his performances were particularly noteworthy. He appears to have a difficulty to emote. His face is expressionless, and words exit his throat with little movement of mouth. His acting ability isn't poor, by any means, just not EXCEPTIONAL like some would have you believe. Yet the paradox is that while his abilities on screen aren't remarkable, I can't help but to root for the guy as the stories progress. He somehow pulls it off. But if I never saw another movie of his again, I wouldn't lose any sleep. There are many actors whom I respect more highly.
The best actor
- bogie fan
It is because of Humphrey Bogart that I watch TCM. The best actor of all time.
My favorite actor ever
- joe jones
I love humphrey!
Very versatile actor-one of the best
- S. Trokey
I have been a Bogie fan from childhood and I have always been amazed at his versatility. I suppose he has gained most of his fame as the tough guy with a good heart, but I found him to be extremely flexible in his parts from the gangster to the tough guy to the wonderful job of a man gone mad for gold in Treasure of the Sierra Madre, which is, to my mind, one of the best roles he accomplished. Although I have to admit, I loved him in his roles as tough guy, i.e. Maltese Falcon, To Have and Have Not. I have a feeling, he would have done well in more comdey, witness Sabrina. Just a great actor-one of a kind!
- david moro

Strange and Complex
- Mary Laginess
I love all of Humphrey Bogart movies.From The Petrified Forest to the African Queen I guess the one I had a hard time with was Dark Victory. He play a stable boy. Such pitiful roll. My most loved roll was Passage to Marseille. He played Self-a-sure men He gets a 10 BUT a Ladies man he gets a 5
Only One Bogie!
- Steve S.
Like so many others from Hollywood's Golden Era Humphrey Bogart was one of kind. A cliche to be sure but it's hard to imagine anyone else as Sam Spade or Rick Blaine et al.
- TCMDB Tester
Best voice ever.
He is timeless. That voice is just music to my ears!
The best actor of all time.
Here's lookin at you kid
Humphrey is in the top two easily his powerful performances in every role he ever played
number one actor
- debbie k
I fell in love with Humphrey Bogart the fist time I saw Casablanca. I was mesmerized by his performance, and he should have won the Oscar for Casablanca, but instead they awarded to Paul Lukas for Watch on the Rhine, what grave oversight on the part of the Academy Also, Casaclanca should have been the number 1 movie on the AFI'S top 100 movie list not the awful and hard to sit thru Citizen Kane. I have watched Casablana many times and never grow tired of it. I always find something new and undiscovered when watching it. Thank you for your time.
HUMPHERY BOGART FAN
HUMPHERY BOGART IS STILL MY FAVORITE ACTOR. COULD PLAY ANY ROLE IN ANY FILM. HE PLAY BAD GUYS. HE PLAY GOOD GUYS. HE PLAY MILARTARY MOVIES. WESTERN MOVIES. AND OTHER MOVIES. HAD THE ABILITY TO TURN A BAD MOVIE INTO A GREAT MOVIE. BEST MOVIES FOR BOGIE WAS CASABLANCA, MALTESE FALCON, AND AFRICAN QUEEN. HE SHOULD WON AN OSCAR IN CASABLANCA AS BEST ACTOR. BUT DID FINALLY WON ONE FOR AFRICAN QUEEN. THE ONLY REGRET IS HE DIED WAY TOO EARLY.
Bogie, Bogie Bogie!
- Mary Q
Who DOESN'T love Humphrey Bogart? Who DOESN'T know Humphrey Bogart the most popular movie star in the world? Even if you haven't seen any of his films (which are terrific, by the way), it's a safe bet that you know his name and that you like him (Come on! You know you do!). His acting is superb and he had such an electrifying presence. There will never be another Bogie.
What a cool, unique guy
Cool unique voice, face and acting style. I love him!
Bogie is back and there's gonna be trouble
Bogie is a great actor, but he can be pretty frightening. However, that's part of his essence. Bogie, no other actor today can match your style!
He is my favorite actor of all time. I don't care how many movies or actors I will se in the future. He will forever be my favorite actor....noone comes close...
Humphrey Bogart's Birthdate
- David Wend
Humphrey Bogart was born on December 25, 1899. There may have been some mixup about his birthdate but the true date is Christmas Day. One needs only to read Lauren Bacall's autobiography for the date.
I can say he is the best!!!
He is the finest actor i have ever seen
Humphrey Bogart is my favotite actor,
- Jane Grace
I find myself drawn to his characters and him I can see why Lauren went for it with a man his age.I would like to see more of his work, I have seen the movies on TCM. And where could I find photos of Hunphrey Bogart,Ingrid Bergman,A young Betty Davis and Claude Raines,That I could frame on the wall.
- Wendy Winkler
What can I say about Humphrey Bogart? He is one of the best. His screen presence had something that Brad Pitt and George Clooney will never have. Watching Bogart's movies on TCM has shown me over the years what a great actor he was. He could be tough and cynical like in the Maltese Falcon. Then he could be incredibly tender in the African Queen. I wonder what other roles he would have played if he hadn't had died so early.
His movies are fun to watch because they are different then modern movies. Bogart is always a character with a dark past who has had a hard life and is a beaten down man for it. Despite being a broken persona, Bogie cohers to his morals in the end. All in all his movies take us to a simpler time when movies were about morals, had a romance in them, and had a clear villain. Bogart translates well to today because he was the original cynic and today everyone is cynical.
He was the Greatest Ever
Bogart Greatest Actor Ever
- Joshua Warmke
Humphrey Bogart was quite simply the greatest actor ever. He continously played roles of bad boys with strict moral values to which he cohers at some point in the movie. Early on he made many gangster films. He later developed some range and did slasher films and others. All in all, he made some 77 movies in 26 years, all of which are good. The best of these are Casablanca, To Have or Have Not, Key Largo, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen. Married Lauren Bacall, becoming one of the first hollywood super couples. Was a heavy drinker and smoker. Famously was quoted as saying, "The Problem with the world is everyone is a few drinks behind." Died of throat cancer.
I enjoy watching the classics especially when the male lead is Humphrey Bogart, he had a quality to him and his acting was truely different from any other. He was macho before macho was a word, he had self-assurance. When he was mean , he was mean, but when he smiled it was pure and simple, almost like he knew a secert and he couldn't tell you. His roles varied, he could play drama as well as a romantic role. But I think I liked him best when he played a sick, demented man ,everybody wanted to hate him, and should have but you always felt sorry for him in the end. There was no body like him nor will there ever be. He was believeable. He was Bogie.
Here's looking at you kid!!
- HumphreyFan Mason
I thimk Humphrey Bogart a great actor. He played the best tough guys. He played in so of the best movies ever. I never even liked old movies untill I saw his. I now love to watch old movis. I have seen 100's of moives.I hope to try in see all of his moives I have seen 56 so far and hope to see all 76 if I can.Humphrey Bogart is one of the best actors out there.
very few could be such a combination of action and thought and when his body of work is considered it is asounding in its range
Thanks to Bogie....
Bogart has opened my eyes to so many classic movies. It is becuase of him and his movies that I appreciate movies from a different era. Thank you to TCM for a wonderful lineup
- MARK NICHOLS
there was no actor to me that could take a role and make it seem like he was the real person that the story was about. you could enjoy the movie alot just by him being in it. i am still able to juggle my work schedule around his movies. summer under the stars is always something to look forward to. long day but great movies! keep up the great work TCM ! mark
i love his movies ill watch anything he's in my favorite one is Sabrina that was the first black and white film i ever saw and i fell in love with the movie and Bogie ever since that i always watch tcm
he was a good actor
i liked sabrina very much
THIS WAS ONE OF THE GREASTEST ACTORS EVER WAS. I LIKE ANYTHING HE PLAYED IN. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT IT IS. HE'S ONE OF THOSE ACTORS WHEN YOU SEE HIS NAME IN THE MOVIE YOU WATCH IT
I Agree With Review of "We're No Angels."
- Al Lowe
I think of "We're No Angels" as one of my guilty pleasures. Other than the positive comment I just read, I have never seen a good review of it. Yes, the studio sets seem obvious but the dialogue and interplay among the three leads seem priceless. I can watch the "Go tell him about the snake" scene over and over and over. Things I wonder about: Was the movie a hit? Did it make money at all? How was the reunion between Bogart and director Michael Curtiz? Did they have fun making it or was it a chore? Was Aldo Ray a popular figure on the Hollywood scene or a loner? Did Peter Ustinov have any stories about the making of this film? Is it true Bogart intervened on behalf of Joan Bennett to get her the role?
WE'RE NO ANGELS. One of my favorite movies not just because of Bogie, or Aldo Ray, an extremely underrated actor, or the wonderfully talented Peter Ustinov but because of the wonderful way they play off of one another. The double-entendres are subtle & amazingly appropriate. The intention was to make us love them & we do even when they blatantly steal & commit murders we believe that they have done what is right & proper & would probably do ourselves given the same "freedom" that they enjoy. After all, they are already serving life on Devil's Island & Basil Rathbone's Andre Trochard is a most disagreeable person with absolutely no redeming graces. The affection & deference that is given to the deadly little snake by Aldo Ray's Albert is both touching & remarkably funny. Poor little creature, absolutely worn out from biting,& it isn't his fault that his bite is fatal. Marvelous!!! The Christmas they give the family, the tender interactions with both the women, even the bumbling Felix Ducotel, played by Leo G Carroll, all blend into an underrated Christmas Classic that is seen far too seldom.
