Bacall, Bogart and Monroe. Where are you looking, Mister Bogart? 

 The Bogarts at home in 1952 by Sid Avery. The dogs were named Harvey, George and Baby.


In death, Humphrey DeForest Bogart has become an icon along with Monroe, Elvis and James Dean. The American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema. It is difficult to believe he was born in 1899 but is still a style influence. He won an Academy Award for “the African Queen” starring alongside that other icon, Katherine Hepburn.

 One of the great love stories where age differences didn’t matter. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. “We had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall. Starring in our old late, late show, sailing away to Key Largo”
