More about movies:

Casablanca
1942
Director: Michael Curtiz
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid
“Casablanca” is the winner of three Oscars and one of the most famous films in the history of cinema. It is ranked first in the American Film Institute’s list “100 years – 100 passions”, ahead of even “Gone with the Wind”. The film’s success and everlasting charm is due to its fine combination of suspense and romance, its beautifully written script, subtle humour and, of course, its stars – the all-time legends Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

In a Lonely Place

1950
Director: Nicholas Ray
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Gloria Grahame and Frank Lovejoy
Dark, heart-pounding and brilliantly filmed, Nicolas Ray’s “In a Lonely Place” combines the elements of film noir, thriller and psychological drama. Ray uncompromisingly explores the nature of violence and at the same time creates a beautiful, sad, poignant love story, wonderfully embodied by Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Graham.

The Big Sleep
1946
Director: Howard Hawks
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and John Ridgely.
Humphrey Bogart appears as cynical, witty, self-assured and at the same time vulnerable private detective Philip Marlowe in this great film noir that is both ironic and violent. His wife Lauren Bacall stars alongside Bogart; together they create one of the most magnetic screen duets in the history of cinema. The script is based on the novel by Raymond Chandler with the help of William Faulkner.

The Two Mrs. Carrolls
1954
Director: Peter Godfrey
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck and Alexis Smith
Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck, femme fatale from Billy Wilder’s “Double Indemnity”, star in this film noir directed by british theatre veteran Peter Godfrey. The exotic mixture of a psychological thriller, the Edgar Allan Poe-esque gothic atmosphere and the occasional sudden humour makes “The Two Mrs. Carrolls” one of the most unusual films in Humphrey Bogart’s career.

Sabrina
1954
Director: Billy Wilder
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden
“Sabrina” is the first romantic comedy in the career of Billy Wilder, the author of classical film noirs “Double Indemnity” and “Sunset Blvd.”. The film combines Cinderella-like story with subtle humour and with the reflections on class society and its transformations in the 20th century. For the young Audrey Hepburn, who plays the love interest of both Bogart’s and William Holden’s characters, it was the first film in which she appeared in dresses made by Hubert de Givenchy (later films being “Funny Face”, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “How to Steal a Million”, “Charade” and others).

Key Largo
1948
Director: John Huston
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore, Claire Trevor
This suspenseful, dynamic and sophisticated film is the fourth John Huston’s film with his good friend Humphrey Bogart in the lead role; it’s also the fourth film in which Bogart plays opposite Lauren Bacall. Hollywood star Edward G. Robinson plays one of his best roles as a heartless gangster Johnny Rocco, whose image was based on real lives of Al Capone and Lucky Luciano. Claire Trevor is also magnificent as Johnny Rocco’s alcoholic girlfriend Gay Dawn; she received an Oscar for this role.

Across the Pacific
1942
Director: John Huston, Vincent Sherman
Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor and Sydney Greenstreet
John Huston’s spy thriller “Across the Pacific” was released in the same year as the famous “Casablanca”. Humphrey Bogart is in his best shape playing alongside Mary Astor, his co-star from “The Maltese Falcon”. This film has everything a film lover needs: detective intrigue, chases, gun-fights, witty dialogue and a beautiful love story. In a way, “Across the Pacific” also predicted the future: its plot was supposed to be built around a fictitious Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but the attack had in fact happened during filming, so the writers had to change the location to Panama.
