Humphrey DeForest Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957)[1][2] was an American actor[3] and is widely regarded as a cultural icon.[4][5] The American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema.

After trying various jobs, Bogart began acting in 1921 and became a regular in Broadway productions in the 1920s and 1930s. When the stock market crash of 1929 reduced the demand for plays, Bogart turned to film. His first great success was as Duke Mantee in The Petrified Forest (1936), and this led to a period of typecasting as a gangster with films such as Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) and B-movies like The Return of Doctor X (1939).

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. Other successes followed, including To Have and Have Not (1944); The Big Sleep (1946); Dark Passage (1947) and Key Largo (1948), with his wife Lauren Bacall; The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948); In a Lonely Place (1950); The African Queen (1951), for which he won his only Academy Award; Sabrina (1954); and The Caine Mutiny (1954). His last movie was The Harder They Fall (1956). During a film career of almost 30 years, he appeared in 75 feature films.

Love Affair (Columbia, 1932). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). This film stars a very young Humphrey Bogart in only his sixth credited role. A pilot (Bogart) falls in love with his beautiful heiress flight student (Dorothy Mackaill). Cards feature Bogart and Mackaill in lower right corner. Both cards are creased down the middle with pin holes and corner dings. The "Mackaill in plane" card is missing three corners. Any paper from his early Bogart film is incredibly rare. Good/Very Good...Sold for: $92.00

Body and Soul (Fox, 1931). Jumbo Lobby Card Set of 8 (14" X 17"). This drama about love and intrigue in the dark days of World War I is notable as an early vehicle for Humphrey Bogart. Indeed, it was only his third film, and although he had made a name for himself on Broadway, it would be several more years before he became a star of the silver screen. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Bogie isn't included on any of these cards, although his name is listed in the credits on each one. One card does bear a lovely image of Myrna Loy, however. All of the cards in this complete set show pinholes in the corners, as well as in the top and bottom center. Most display scuffing on the images as well. One card has an extra pinhole, and another has a crease and a small tear in the upper corner. Otherwise, this is a gorgeous set from an early Bogart picture. Fine/Very Fine.

Body and Soul (Fox, 1931). Window Card (14" X 22").
In this early talkie, future superstar Humphrey Bogart plays Jim Watson, a courageous flyer shot down in a raid on German observation balloons during World War I. His friend (Charles Farrell) tries to track down Watson's widow, but the woman who claims to be Bogart's grieving spouse (Myrna Loy) is actually a German spy responsible for the deaths of many valiant airmen. This colorful and attractive window card had a bend in the bottom left corner, minor holes in the credits area, minor chipping in the right and top borders, and some scuffing in the credits, but an outstanding job of expert professional restoration has rendered these slight flaws virtually invisible. Don't pass this vintage treasure by! Very Fine on Card-stock...Sold for: $1,045.63

BOGART'S FILMOGRAPHY...
LIFE [UNCREDITED BIT PART]-1920

The Dancing Town (1928) is a two-reeler sound short and was Humphrey Bogart's first film appearance. The film also featured Helen Hayes and Hal Skelly.[1]

Broadway's Like That (1930) is a 10-minute Vitaphone short film with Ruth Etting, Joan Blondell, Humphrey Bogart, and Mary Philips. Bogart and Philips were married at the time of this film.[1]


Up the River (Fox, 1930). Window Card (14" X 22").
In only his third screen appearance, Humphrey Bogart stars as reformed ex-con Steve Jordan, who tries to make a new start in a small town with his reformed ex-con wife (Clare Luce, in her screen debut). When a blackmailer begins to cause problems for the couple, two of Jordan's buddies, Spencer Tracy and Warren Hymer, break out of jail to come to their rescue. This terrific comedy is directed by none other than John Ford, and was the only film the powerhouse trio of Ford, Bogart, and Tracy would make together. The poster shows faint stains and foxing in the borders, and a minor edge tear at the right. This highly stylized window card, with its great art deco illustrations, prominently features Bogart for, as far as we know, the first time on a movie poster, making this a very rare and desirable collectible. Very Fine-.[THIS POSTER SOLD FOR $$1,553.50]
