Humphrey Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957) was an American screen actor who, with performances in films during the 1940s such as The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and The Big Sleep, became widely regarded as a cultural icon.  In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema.

Bogart's breakthrough as a leading man came in 1941, with High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon. The next year, his performance in Casablanca raised him to the peak of his profession and, at the same time, cemented his trademark film persona, that of the hard-boiled cynic who ultimately shows his noble side. During a film career of almost 30 years, he appeared in 75 feature films.
