Arguably the most famous actor from the black and white days of Hollywood, Bogart at first intended to follow in his father's footsteps and become a surgeon. He was expelled from medical school for disciplinary reasons, however, and he joined the Navy during World War I. He acquired a facial injury when his ship was shelled, resulting in the slight lisp that characterized his speech. He became an actor in the 1920s, but his odd looks prevented him from attaining starring roles.
He appeared as a heavy in some thirty gangster films, but in 1941 he was finally given the opportunity to star in The Maltese Falcon. A huge hit, he went on to star in such gems as Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen, for which he won an Academy Award. He married Lauren Bacall, 25 years his jimior, and the two were happily married until his death from cancer in 1957.
Won the 1952 best actor Oscar for The African Queen.
