Humphrey Bogart-Legacy




A “Bogie Cult” formed at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as well as Greenwich Village, New York and in France after his death.  It contributed to his spike in popularity in the late 1950s and 1960s.


Entertainment Weekly magazine named him the number one movie legend of all time in 1997.  the American Film Institute ranked him the Greatest Male Star of All Time in 1999.


Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless was the first film to pay tribute to Bogart. Later, in Woody Allen’s comic tribute to Bogart “Play It Again, Sam”, Bogart’s ghost comes to the aid of Allen’s bumbling character, a movie critic with woman troubles and whose “sex life has turned into the ‘Petrified Forest’”.
