One of the greatest film star’s from the past is being honored yet again this May. The actor, who is one of cinema’s most beloved ganster and rough character is none other than Hollywood screen legend Humphrey Bogart.
Bogart, who had starred in countless classic movies during the Golden Age Of Hollywood, is being honored in none other than Key Largo, Florida to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the film which starred Bogart and his beloved wife, Lauren Bacall.
Bogart’s personal life is an extremely interesting contrast to the hard boiled characters he became famous for. The son of a moderately successful Manhattan surgeon, he prepared for medical studies at Yale but WWI put a stop to this. During the war, a wound on the naval boat Bogart had served on is what gave him his trademark lisp.
After almost 5 years of minor roles, his role in the Broadway show “The Petrified Forest” launched Bogart to recreate his role for the film version. The 1936 film brought ‘instant’ stardom, leading to a lifelong career with Warner Brothers, culminating with the Best Actor Academy Award for his role in “The African Queen.”
The Humphrey Bogart Film Festival will be taking place on May 2 -5 in Key Largo and is hosted by Stephen Bogart, Humphrey’s son. Notable film critic Leonard Maltin will be there to give commentary. This is one celebration no self-respecting film fan should miss.
