ALL HE HAS TO DO TO DOMINATE A SCENE IS TO ENTER IT.”
– Raymond Chandler

“BOGART,” a three-week, 19-film festival celebrating iconic movie tough guy and romantic hero Humphrey Bogart, will run at Film Forum from Friday, July 16 – Thursday, August 5 (three weeks). This will be Film Forum’s first series since its reopening in April.

IN 35MM AND RESTORED DCP
FRIDAY, JULY 16 – THURSDAY, AUGUST 5

Born and raised on the Upper West Side, Humphrey DeForest Bogart (1899–1957) began his stage career in the 1920s playing “juveniles” before making his movie debut in 1930. But it was his breakthrough role as gangster “Duke” Mantee in both the Broadway and movie versions of The Petrified Forest (1936) that established his tough guy persona. Typecast as gangsters in Warner Bros. movies of the 1930s, often in support of stars James Cagney and George Raft, Bogart (nicknamed “Bogie”) first achieved full stardom with his break-out role in Raoul Walsh’s High Sierra (1941), soon after establishing himself as one of the screen’s greatest romantic stars opposite Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (1942).

Bogart tops the American Film Institute’s list of greatest male screen legends, and was ranked the #1 movie legend of all time by Entertainment Weekly.

The series spotlights Bogart’s close collaborations with some of the era’s greatest directors, including John Huston, Michael Curtiz, Nicholas Ray, and William Wyler. In addition to Bergman, Bogie’s leading ladies include Lizabeth Scott, Gloria Grahame, Audrey Hepburn, Ida Lupino, Jennifer Jones, and wife Lauren Bacall, who first created fireworks with Bogart in To Have and Have Not (“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? Just put your lips together and blow.”).
