Humphrey Bogart Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Humphrey Bogart was born on the 25h December 1899, in New York City, USA, and was an iconic, Oscar-winning screen and stage actor, best known for such movies as “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), “Casablanca” (1942), “The Big Sleep” (1946), and “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre” (1948). Bogart’s career started in 1921 and ended in 1956. He passed away in 1957.

Have you ever wondered how rich Humphrey Bogart was, at the time of his death? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Bogart’s net worth was as high as $5 million, an amount earned through his successful acting career. In addition to being a major star on the big screen, Bogart played in theatre and on the radio, which also improved his wealth.

Humphrey Bogart was the eldest child of Belmont DeForest Bogart and Maud Humphrey, and was raised in an English-Dutch (father) and British (mother) family alongside his sisters Frances and Catherine Elizabeth. He went to Delancey School before moving to the prestigious Trinity School. Bogart’s well-situated family used its connections to send him to the elite boarding school Phillips Academy, with the plan to continue his education at Yale, but Humphrey was expelled in 1918, so he enlisted in the United States Navy that spring.

In 1921, Bogart debuted in a play called “Drifting”, and until 1935, he appeared in more than 15 Broadway productions. In 1930, Humphrey debuted on film in John Ford’s “Up the River”, and he continued with roles in such movies as “A Devil with Women” (1931) and “Body and Soul” (1931). In 1936, Bogart caught the eye in “The Petrified Forest” with Leslie Howard and Bette Davis, and then starred in the Oscar-nominated “Black Legion”. Humphrey was quite busy in 1937 as he played in “Marked Woman” again alongside Bette Davis, in “Kid Galahad” with Edward G. Robinson and Bette Davis, and in William Wyler’s Oscar-nominated “Dead End”. Bogart ended the ‘30s with roles in “The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse” (1938), and in Michael Curtiz’s Oscar-nominated “Angels with Dirty Faces” (1938) with James Cagney and Pat O’Brien. He also starred in Edmund Goulding’s Oscar-nominated “Dark Victory” (1939) alongside Bette Davis, and in “The Roaring Twenties” (1939) with James Cagney and Priscilla Lane. His net worth was well established by this time.

Bogart started the ‘40s with parts in such movies as “Brother Orchid” (1940), “They Drive by Night” (1940), and “High Sierra” (1941), but then starred in John Huston’s Oscar-nominated “The Maltese Falcon” (1941) which helped him to become an international star. The movie grossed over $1.7 million worldwide, which was very lucrative at the time and helped Humphrey to increase his net worth significantly. He then played in “All Through the Night” (1942) and in Michael Curtiz’s Oscar-winning “Casablanca” (1943) alongside Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid; this masterpiece secured him a first Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role and made him a lot of money. These two movies launched Bogart as a Hollywood star, and he continued to work in very notable films.

In 1943, he starred in Oscar-nominated “Action in the North Atlantic”, while his next two movies also received Academy Award nominations: Zoltan Korda’s “Sahara” and David Butler’s “Thank Your Lucky Stars” (1943). In the mid-40s, Humphrey played alongside Lauren Bacall in Howard Hawks’ “To Have and Have Not” (1944), in “Conflict” (1945), and in “The Big Sleep” (1946). He and Bacall starred in “Dark Passage” (1947), and then he had lead roles in John Huston’s Oscar-winning films “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre” (1948) and “Key Largo” (1948) alongside Edward G. Robinson and Lauren Bacall.

Bogart’s medical conditions didn’t allow him to appear as frequently on the screen as in the ‘50s as he did earlier in career, but he did play in several notable movies. In the early ‘50s, Humphrey had roles in “In a Lonely Place” (1950) and “The Enforcer” (1951), before earning his first and only Oscar for John Huston’s “The African Queen” (1951) with Katharine Hepburn. The film grossed over $10 million at the box office, and it was one of the most lucrative in Bogart’s career. He continued with “Deadline – U.S.A.” (1952), was nominated for an Oscar in Edward Dmytryk’s “The Caine Mutiny” (1954), and then in Billy Wilder’s Oscar-winning “Sabrina” (1954) with Audrey Hepburn and William Holden. Humphrey’s last films were Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Oscar-winning “The Barefoot Contessa” (1954) alongside Ava Gardner, in “The Desperate Hours” (1955), and in Mark Robson’s Oscar-winning “The Harder They Fall” (1956).

Regarding his personal life, Humphrey Bogart was married to Helen Menken from 1926 to 1927, and then to Mary Philips from 1928 to 1938. His third wife was Mayo Methot from 1938 to 1945, and was then married to fellow actress Lauren Bacall – 24 years his junior – from 1945 to the moment of his death and had two children with her.

A lifelong smoker, Bogart was diagnosed with a cancer of the oesophagus in 1956, and died on the 14th January 1957 in Los Angeles, USA after falling into a coma.

#Fact
1 Became a father for the 2nd time at age 52 when his 4th wife Lauren Bacall gave birth to their daughter Leslie Bogart on August 23, 1952.
2 Became a father for the 1st time at age 49 when his 4th wife Lauren Bacall gave birth to their son Stephen H. Bogart on January 6, 1949.
3 Has a street named after him in Hallstead, Pennsylvania.
4 Bogart often played sailors in films such as The African Queen (1951), The Caine Mutiny (1954) and Action in the North Atlantic (1943). In real life Bogart joined the US Navy during the the First World War and served on the troopship USS Leviathan in the North Atlantic.
5 Bogart's friend, journalist Joe Hyams, wrote an authorized biography, "Bogie: The Definitive Biography of Humphrey Bogart" with an introduction by Lauren Bacall published by the New American Library in 1966.
6 Bogart's father, a wealthy surgeon, was friends with famed Broadway and film producer William A. Brady and the families lived near each other in New York City. It was through Brady that Bogart got his first acting job on Broadway, and he in fact worked for a while as the manager of Brady's film studio, World Films.
7 According to "The Fifty Year Decline and Fall of Hollywood" by Ezra Goodman, Bogart would often strategically disappear from his table at the Hollywood landmark restaurant Romanoff's--a favorite Bogart hangout--when the check was brought to the table, especially after he had invited a magazine writer to dinner and drinks. Often the writer would wind up having to put on his expense account the bill that Bogart had run up for himself and his friends.
8 Clifton Webb once said about Bogart, "Humphrey was not a tough guy, He was not at all. He was about as tough as Little Lord Fauntleroy".
9 Was producer Hal B. Wallis' first choice as Burt Lancaster's co-star in Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957). The role was eventually played by Kirk Douglas.
10 The "Bogart Lisp" has been the subject of much speculation. However, it is now believed that it was natural and not the result of a combat injury (other stories attribute it to a drunken bar fight or an attack by a prisoner he was transporting while serving as a Shore Patrolman) during his US Navy service in WW I. His son, Steve Bogart, has the same speech impediment as his father.
11 He and Lauren Bacall are immortalized in Suzanne Vega's song "Freeze Tag".
12 While he was married to fiery actress Mayo Methot he discovered that she suspected him of cheating on her - he wasn't - and had hired a private detective to follow him. Bogart found out the name of the agency the PI worked for, and called them up. When he reached the man's boss he said, "You got a man on my tail. Would you check with him and find out where I am?".
13 In the episode of The Simpsons (1989) entitled "Sideshow Bob Roberts", Bogart's name is spoofed when Lisa mentions a famous snake named 'Humphrey Boa-Gart".
14 Is mentioned in the Bon Jovi song "Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen of Mars" along with his wife Lauren Bacall.
15 Was best friends with John Huston.
16 Although he and wife Lauren Bacall initially protested the House Un-American Activities Committee, they both eventually succumbed to pressure and distanced themselves from the Hollywood Ten in a March 1948 Photoplay Magazine article penned by Bogart titled "I'm No Communist".
17 After undergoing a nine-and-a-half hour operation for esophageal cancer on 1 March 1956, Bogart began smoking filtered cigarettes for the first time in his life.
18 Lauren Bacall once recalled that while John Wayne and Fred Astaire hardly knew her husband Humphrey Bogart at all, they were the first to send flowers and good wishes after Bogart was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in January 1956.
19 In late 1947, was to be a partner with producer Mark Hellinger in a proposed new company, Mark Hellinger Productions. Bogart invested $25,000 and was contracted to do two films a year. Hellinger owned the rights to Willard Motley's best selling novel "Knock on Any Door". However, Hellinger died in Dec. 1947. The rights to the novel passed to Bogart, and it became the first film of his own new independent production company, Santana Pictures Corporation: Knock on Any Door (1949).
20 Was an outstanding chess player. At a time when many stores had a professional chess player who could be challenged by anyone, Bogie would challenge and win almost every game. The challenger would pay 50 cents. If he won, he got $1.00. Many stores wanted Bogie to turn pro, but he declined because he was making more money as a non-pro. Eventually he did turn pro and would beat 40 or more people a day. (Source: Paul Harvey, Jr.'s, "The Rest of the Story.").
21 All four of his wives were actresses.
22 In 1952, he campaigned for Democratic Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson after initially supporting Republican candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower.
23 Salary for 1942: $114,125.
24 He was a close friend of Richard Burton, and once confessed to the Welsh actor that his ambition had always been to act in a Shakespearean play on stage. He regretted that the public probably would not be able to take him seriously in such a role, due to his screen image as the tough guy.
25 In her essay "Humphrey and Bogie," Louise Brooks, who knew Bogart early in his career, said that the role she felt most closely personified Bogart's personality was Dixon "Dix" Steele in In a Lonely Place (1950): "In a film whose title perfectly defined Humphrey's own isolation among people, In a Lonely Place (1950) gave him a role that he could play with complexity because the film character's, the screenwriter's, pride in his art, his selfishness, his drunkenness, his lack of energy stabbed with lightning strokes of violence, were shared equally by the real Bogart.".
26 He was a friend of the English actor Jack Hawkins, who also suffered from throat cancer nine years after Bogart's death.
27 He was involved in a serious automobile accident late in the production of Beat the Devil (1953). Several of his teeth were knocked out in the accident, hindering his ability to speak clearly. Director John Huston hired a young British actor noted for his mimicry skills to re-record some of Bogart's dialog during post-production looping. And although the talent of the young impersonator is such that the difference is undetectable while viewing the film today, it is a young Peter Sellers who provides Bogart's voice during some of the scenes.
28 Like his friends John Huston and Spencer Tracy, Bogart was a heavy smoker and a heavy drinker, allegedly sustaining two packs of Chesterfields a day.
29 For years, a 16mm print of the Janet Gaynor/Fredric March version of A Star Is Born (1937) would be screened at the Bogart household each and every Christmas Day (Bogart's birthday) while Bogart would sit watching the film and weeping. Finally, one year, director Richard Brooks, a long-time friend of Bogart's asked him why. "Because," Bogart explained, "I expected a lot more of myself. And I'm never going to get it.".
30 Is portrayed by Jerry Lacy in Play It Again, Sam (1972).
31 Is portrayed by Kevin O'Connor in Bogie (1980).

40 Is mentioned, along with wife Lauren Bacall, in the hit 1980s song "Key Largo" ("We had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall").
41 So as to not look short next to co-stars like Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, through most of the shooting of Casablanca (1942) (and in a few of his other films) Bogart wore platforms under his shoes that added nearly 5 inches of height to his frame.
42 He was voted the 13th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Premiere Magazine.
43 Frank Sinatra's friends, known as The Clan, were originally a group of Bogart friends who enjoyed drinking heavily. They referred to themselves as 'The Holmby Hills Rat Pack', since Bogart lived in the Holmby Hills section of Hollywood. The Rat Pack name had originated one morning, after a night of heavy boozing, when Bogart's wife Lauren Bacall came upon the sodden group and flatly stated, 'You look like a God-damned rat pack.' Bogart enjoyed the term, and a legend was born. But Sinatra stopped using the "Rat Pack" name after Bogie died in 1957, and he and his friends hated it when others continued to label them that way (Source: Robert Osborne, Turner Classic Movies).
44 He had many famous visitors as he grew ill from cancer during the year before he died, including but not limited to Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Marilyn Monroe, George Cukor, Judy Garland, Clark Gable, Bette Davis, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Ustinov, Billy Wilder, Dean Martin, and Kirk Douglas.
45 His marriage to Lauren Bacall occurred at the Pleasant Valley area of Richland County, Ohio, known as Malabar Farm, the home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield (4 miles southeast of Lucas within Monroe Township). The home is now an Ohio State Park.
46 Almost all of the roles that made him a star (after a decade of toiling in minor films) were roles he got because George Raft had turned them down, from High Sierra (1941), in which Bogie was first noticed as a viable box office draw, to Casablanca (1942), which made him a true international star. Ironically, after having been overshadowed by Raft the whole first half of his career, Bogart remains a legend while Raft is all-but-forgotten.
47 He was voted the Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
48 Though a poor student, he was a lifelong reader, and could quote Plato, Pope, Ralph Waldo Emerson and over a thousand lines of Shakespeare. He admired writers, and some of his best friends, including Richard Brooks, who directed him in _Deadline--USA (1952), were screenwriters.
49 Off the set, he and Ingrid Bergman hardly spoke during the filming of Casablanca (1942). She said later, "I kissed him, but I never knew him." Years later, after Ingrid Bergman had become involved with Italian director Roberto Rossellini, and borne him a child, he bawled her out for it. "You used to be a great star," he said. "What are you now?" "A happy woman," she replied. Bogart's coolness towards Bergman was later revealed to have been caused by the violent jealousy of his wife at the time, Mayo Methot, whose fears were realized when Bogart entered an affair with future wife Lauren Bacall.
50 He had just turned 57 and weighed only 80 pounds when he died on January 14, 1957.
51 At 5'8", he was almost exactly the same height as his beloved wife Lauren Bacall.
52 Although usually considered a quiet and accommodating actor by most of his collaborators, he became disliked by William Holden and Billy Wilder during the filming of Sabrina (1954). A good friend before they made the film, Wilder later said that Bogart, near the end of his life, apologized for his behavior on the set and said it was due to his personal problems. Even so, Audrey Hepburn got along with him despite his criticism of her.
53 His preferred brand of cigarettes was Chesterfield.
54 He was of English, along with Dutch, German, distant French, and remote Belgian (Walloon), ancestry. His surname was of Dutch origin.
55 Starred with his wife Lauren Bacall in the syndicated radio program "Bold Venture" (1951-1952). His character's name was Slate Shannon.
56 Co-starred not only in Casablanca (1942), the film rated No. 1 on American Film Institute's list of Top 100 U.S. love stories (2002), but in four other films on AFI romance list: The African Queen (1951), ranked at #xx; Dark Victory (1939), ranked at #32; Sabrina (1954),ranked at #54; and To Have and Have Not (1944), ranked at #60.
57 Pictured on a 32¢ US commemorative postage stamp in the Legends of Hollywood series, issued 31 July 1997.
58 Maud Bogart's drawing of her baby Humphrey appeared in a national advertising campaign for Mellin's Baby Food, not as often erroneously reported, for Gerber.
59 Ranked #1 on the American Film Institute's list of the greatest screen actors.
60 Distantly related to the late Princess Diana, Princess of Wales, through her American relations.
61 Related to screenwriter Adela Rogers St. Johns; his grandfather and her grandmother were brother and sister.
62 Decades after his death, Bogie made a guest appearance on the TV horror series Tales from the Crypt (1989). Footage from several movies were computer enhanced and combined with a voice and body double to allow Bogart to receive top billing for the episode "You, Murderer." Guest starring with "Bogie" were John Lithgow and Isabella Rossellini, performing an eerie (and hilarious) parody of her mother, Ingrid Bergman.
63 Was nicknamed "The Last Century Man" because he was born on Christmas Day 1899 (based on the popular belief that the 19th Century ended in 1899, not 1900 as it really was).
64 His coffin contains a small, gold whistle, put there by his wife, Lauren Bacall.
65 In Key Largo (1948), Bogie takes the helm of a boat called the Santana. In real life, Santana was the name of Bogie's yacht, which he purchased from June Allyson and Dick Powell.
66 Played chess by mail with GIs during WWII.
67 Interred at Forest Lawn, Glendale, CA, in the Garden of Memory, Columbarium of Eternal Light (not accessible to the general public).
68 Named his daughter, Leslie Bogart, "Leslie" to show his gratitude to Leslie Howard, who got him his big break in The Petrified Forest (1936).
69 There is some dispute as to how Bogey's lip injury occurred. One story is that when Bogart was in the Navy, a prisoner he was escorting attempted to escape and hit Bogart in the face with his shackles. Bogart, fearing that he would lose his position and be severely punished for letting a prisoner escape, chased down the man and brought him successfully to the Portsmouth Naval Prison. However, because the surgeon who stitched up his face did not do a very good job, Bogart was left with his trademark lisp. Another version has it that he caught a large wood splinter in his lip at the age of 12, but the combat story is more exciting - a legend, indeed.
70 Bogart's speech defect (lisping) does not appear in the German dubbings of his voice, which is also lower.
71 Ranked #9 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
72 New York Times reported on 12/25/2000 that "Humphrey Bogart was born on 23 January 1899, but Warner Brothers publicity decided that a Christmas birthday would be far more advantageous because 'a guy born on Christmas can't be all bad.'" However, copies of two 1900 census forms prove this to be incorrect.
73 The older of two children with Lauren Bacall, Stephen H. Bogart, discussed his relationship with Bogie in 1996 book, "Bogart: In Search of My Father".
74 Became a father for the 2nd time at age 52 when his 4th wife Lauren Bacall gave birth to their daughter Leslie Bogart on August 23, 1952.
75 Became a father for the 1st time at age 49 when his 4th wife Lauren Bacall gave birth to their son Stephen H. Bogart on January 6, 1949.
76 Has a street named after him in Hallstead, Pennsylvania.
77 Bogart often played sailors in films such as 'The African Queen', 'The Caine Mutiny' and 'Action in the North Atlantic'. In real life Bogart joined the US Navy during the the First World War and served on the troopship USS Leviathan in the North Atlantic.
78 Bogart's friend, journalist Joe Hyams, wrote an authorized biography, "Bogie: The Definitive Biography of Humphrey Bogart" with an introduction by Lauren Bacall published by the New American Libtary in 1966.
79 Bogart's father, a wealthy surgeon, was friends with famed Broadway and film producer William A. Brady and the families lived near each other in New York City. It was through Brady that Bogart got his first acting job on Broadway, and he in fact worked for a while as the manager of Brady's film studio, World Films.
80 According to "The Fifty Year Decline and Fall of Hollywood" by Ezra Goodman, Bogart would often strategically disappear from his table at the Hollywood landmark restaurant Romanoff's--a favorite Bogart hangout--when the check was brought to the table, especially after he had invited a magazine writer to dinner and drinks. Often the writer would wind up having to put on his expense account the bill that Bogart had run up for himself and his friends.
81 Clifton Webb once said about Bogart, "Humphrey was not a tough guy, He was not at all. He was about as tough as Little Lord Fauntleroy".
82 Was producer Hal B. Wallis' first choice as Burt Lancaster's co-star in Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957). The role was eventually played by Kirk Douglas.
83 The "Bogart Lisp" has been the subject of much speculation. However, it is now believed that it was natural and not the result of a combat injury (other stories attribute it to a drunken bar fight or an attack by a prisoner he was transporting while serving as a Shore Patrolman) during his US Navy service in WW I. His son, Steve Bogart, has the same speech impediment as his father.
84 He and Lauren Bacall are immortalized in Suzanne Vega's song "Freeze Tag".
85 While he was married to fiery actress Mayo Methot he discovered that she suspected him of cheating on her - he wasn't - and had hired a private detective to follow him. Bogart found out the name of the agency the PI worked for, and called them up. When he reached the man's boss he said, "You got a man on my tail. Would you check with him and find out where I am?".
86 In the episode of The Simpsons (1989) entitled "Sideshow Bob Roberts", Bogart's name is spoofed when Lisa mentions a famous snake named 'Humphrey Boa-Gart".
87 Is mentioned in the Bon Jovi song "Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen of Mars" along with his wife Lauren Bacall.
88 Was best friends with John Huston.
89 Although he and wife Lauren Bacall initially protested the House Un-American Activities Committee, they both eventually succumbed to pressure and distanced themselves from the Hollywood Ten in a March 1948 Photoplay Magazine article penned by Bogart titled "I'm No Communist".
90 After undergoing a nine-and-a-half hour operation for esophageal cancer on 1 March 1956, Bogart began smoking filtered cigarettes for the first time in his life.
91 Lauren Bacall once recalled that while John Wayne and Fred Astaire hardly knew her husband Humphrey Bogart at all, they were the first to send flowers and good wishes after Bogart was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in January 1956.
92 In late 1947, was to be a partner with producer Mark Hellinger in a proposed new company, Mark Hellinger Productions. Bogart invested $25,000 and was contracted to do two films a year. Hellinger owned the rights to Willard Motley's best selling novel "Knock on Any Door". However, Hellinger died in Dec. 1947. The rights to the novel passed to Bogart, and it became the first film of his own new independent production company, Santana Pictures Corporation: Knock on Any Door (1949).
93 Was an outstanding chess player. At a time when many stores had a professional chess player who could be challenged by anyone, Bogie would challenge and win almost every game. The challenger would pay 50 cents. If he won, he got $1.00. Many stores wanted Bogie to turn pro, but he declined because he was making more money as a non-pro. Eventually he did turn pro and would beat 40 or more people a day. (Source: Paul Harvey, Jr.'s, "The Rest of the Story.").
94 All four of his wives were actresses.
95 In 1952, he campaigned for Democratic Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson after initially supporting Republican candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower.
96 Salary for 1942: $114,125.
97 He was a close friend of Richard Burton, and once confessed to the Welsh actor that his ambition had always been to act in a Shakespearean play on stage. He regretted that the public probably would not be able to take him seriously in such a role, due to his screen image as the tough guy.
98 In her essay "Humphrey and Bogie," Louise Brooks, who knew Bogart early in his career, said that the role she felt most closely personified Bogart's personality was Dixon "Dix" Steele in In a Lonely Place (1950): "In a film whose title perfectly defined Humphrey's own isolation among people, In a Lonely Place (1950) gave him a role that he could play with complexity because the film character's, the screenwriter's, pride in his art, his selfishness, his drunkenness, his lack of energy stabbed with lightning strokes of violence, were shared equally by the real Bogart.".
99 He was a friend of the English actor Jack Hawkins, who also suffered from throat cancer nine years after Bogart's death.
100 He was involved in a serious automobile accident late in the production of Beat the Devil (1953). Several of his teeth were knocked out in the accident, hindering his ability to speak clearly. Director John Huston hired a young British actor noted for his mimicry skills to re-record some of Bogart's dialog during post-production looping. And although the talent of the young impersonator is such that the difference is undetectable while viewing the film today, it is a young Peter Sellers who provides Bogart's voice during some of the scenes.
101 Like his friends John Huston and Spencer Tracy, Bogart was a heavy smoker and a heavy drinker, allegedly sustaining two packs of Chesterfields a day.
102 For years, a 16mm print of the Janet Gaynor/Fredric March version of A Star Is Born (1937) would be screened at the Bogart household each and every Christmas Day (Bogart's birthday) while Bogart would sit watching the film and weeping. Finally, one year, director Richard Brooks, a long-time friend of Bogart's asked him why. "Because," Bogart explained, "I expected a lot more of myself. And I'm never going to get it.".

#Quote
1 A hot dog at the game beats roast beef at the Ritz.
2 The only point in making money is, you can tell some big shot where to go.
3 I'm no Communist, just an American dope.
4 I think Marlon Brando is one of the best young actors in the business, and I think he'll be great as soon as he gets that potato out of his mouth.
5 [on the 1952 Oscars] I don't think I have a chance. For one thing, I don't have a big studio behind me to do the campaigning. And there are some pretty sharp boys in the race.
6 [on working with Rod Steiger in The Harder They Fall (1956)] These Actor's Studio types - they mumble their lines. I can't hear their words. I miss the cues. This scratch-your-ass-and-mumble school of acting doesn't please me.
7 [on Academy Awards] The only honest way to find the best actor would be to let everybody play Hamlet and let the best man win. Of course, you'd get some pretty funny Hamlets that way.
8 [After viewing 'In Which We Serve' (1942)] Obviously, Noël Coward is the guy Orson Welles thinks he is.
9 [on Katharine Hepburn, during the filming of The African Queen (1951) on location in the Congo] You could argue with her, but she was tough. When Jack [cinematographer Jack Cardiff] saw her striding into the jungle alone one morning, he thought, "God help the jungle".
10 [on movie fan magazines] They are the damnedest bilge. They distort everything. I can't stand them. They build up an audience of people who read fan magazines.
11 I'm not good-looking. I used to be but not any more. Not like Robert Taylor. What I have got is I have character in my face. it's taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, 'Don't take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.'
12 [on screen love] I have absolutely no interest in who gets the girl. I don't care. I don't see any reason to spend two hours to see who gets the girl especially since you know who's going to get her from the beginning - usually the actor who gets the most money.
13 [on publicity] As long as they spell your name right and you are not accused of dope or rape, you are all right.
14 [while visiting the set of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)] This guy [Marlon Brando] - he'll be doing Hamlet when the rest of us are selling potatoes.
15 It is at least worth arguing that there is a modicum of the creative novelist in all of us, and that this absorption with how men get out of difficulties, single-handedly and alone if possible, is the stuff of which we weave the warp and woof of our own better dramatic imaginings.
16 [on Bette Davis] Even when I was carrying a gun, she scared the be-jesus out of me.
17 [on Katharine Hepburn] She talks at you as though you were a microphone. She lectured the hell out of me on temperance and the evils of drink. She doesn't give a damn how she looks. I don't think she tries to be a character. I think she is one.
18 [on Warner Brothers] This studio has more suspensions than the Golden Gate Bridge.
19 [on Ingrid Bergman] "I didn't do anything I've never done before, but when the camera moves in on that Bergman face, and she's saying she loves you, it would make anybody feel romantic."
20 I don't hurt the industry. The industry hurts itself, by making so many lousy movies - as if General Motors deliberately put out a bad car.
21 Do I subscribe to the [Laurence Olivier] school of acting? Ah, nuts. I'm an actor. I just do what comes naturally.
22 [on the untrained beefcake stars of the early 1950s, many of them picked up for screen tests from sidewalks and gas stations] "Shout 'gas' around the studios today, and half the young male stars will come running."
23 I made more lousy pictures than any actor in history.
24 You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi.
25 The only thing you owe the public is a good performance.
26 Acting is like sex: you either do it and don't talk about it, or you talk about it and don't do it. That's why I'm always suspicious of people who talk too much about either.
27 The whole world is three drinks behind. If everybody in the world would take three drinks, we would have no trouble.
28 I hate funerals. They aren't for the guy who's dead. They're for the guys who are left alive and enjoy mourning.
29 The only good reason to have money is this: so that you can tell any SOB in the world to go to hell.
30 I don't approve of the John Waynes and the Gary Coopers saying 'Shucks, I ain't no actor -- I'm just a bridge builder or a gas station attendant.' If they aren't actors, what the hell are they getting paid for? I have respect for my profession. I worked hard at it.
31 I can't say I ever loved my mother, I admired her.
32 [about himself] "Democrat in politics, Episcopalian by upbringing, dissenter by disposition."
33 When the heavy, full of crime and bitterness, grabs his wounds and talks about death and taxes in a husky voice, the audience is his and his alone.
34 A hotdog at the ballpark is better than a steak at the Ritz.
35 I came out here with one suit and everybody said I looked like a bum. Twenty years later Marlon Brando came out with only a sweatshirt and the town drooled over him. That shows how much Hollywood has progressed.
36 [on the House Un-American Activities Committee] "They'll nail anyone who ever scratched his ass during the National Anthem."
37 [attributed last words] "I should never have switched from scotch to martinis."
38 [on Lauren Bacall] "She's a real Joe. You'll fall in love with her like everybody else."
39 It's been misspelt a lot. He decided on it. It's not Bog-ey. He signed with an -ie. And that's good enough for me. -
40 Acting is experience with something sweet behind it.
41 The trouble with the world is that it's always one drink behind.
42 A hot dog at the game beats roast beef at the Ritz.
43 The only point in making money is, you can tell some big shot where to go.
44 I'm no Communist, just an American dope.
45 I think Marlon Brando is one of the best young actors in the business, and I think he'll be great as soon as he gets that potato out of his mouth.
46 [on the 1952 Oscars] I don't think I have a chance. For one thing, I don't have a big studio behind me to do the campaigning. And there are some pretty sharp boys in the race.
47 [on working with Rod Steiger in The Harder They Fall (1956)] These Actor's Studio types - they mumble their lines. I can't hear their words. I miss the cues. This scratch-your-ass-and-mumble school of acting doesn't please me.
48 [on Academy Awards] The only honest way to find the best actor would be to let everybody play Hamlet and let the best man win. Of course, you'd get some pretty funny Hamlets that way.
49 [After viewing 'In Which We Serve' (1942)] Obviously, Noel Coward is the guy Orson Welles thinks he is.
50 [on Katharine Hepburn, during the filming of The African Queen (1951) on location in the Congo] You could argue with her, but she was tough. When Jack [cinematographer Jack Cardiff] saw her striding into the jungle alone one morning, he thought, "God help the jungle".
51 [on movie fan magazines] They are the damnedest bilge. They distort everything. I can't stand them. They build up an audience of people who read fan magazines.
52 I'm not good-looking. I used to be but not any more. Not like Robert Taylor. What I have got is I have character in my face. it's taken an awful lot of late nights and drinking to put it there. When I go to work in a picture, I say, 'Don't take the lines out of my face. Leave them there.'
53 [on screen love] I have absolutely no interest in who gets the girl. I don't care. I don't see any reason to spend two hours to see who gets the girl especially since you know who's going to get her from the beginning - usually the actor who gets the most money.
54 [on publicity] As long as they spell your name right and you are not accused of dope or rape, you are all right.
55 [while visiting the set of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)] This guy [Marlon Brando] - he'll be doing Hamlet when the rest of us are selling potatoes.
56 It is at least worth arguing that there is a modicum of the creative novelist in all of us, and that this absorption with how men get out of difficulties, single-handedly and alone if possible, is the stuff of which we weave the warp and woof of our own better dramatic imaginings.
57 [on Bette Davis] Even when I was carrying a gun, she scared the be-jesus out of me.
58 [on Katharine Hepburn] She talks at you as though you were a microphone. She lectured the hell out of me on temperance and the evils of drink. She doesn't give a damn how she looks. I don't think she tries to be a character. I think she is one.
59 [on Warner Brothers] This studio has more suspensions than the Golden Gate Bridge.
60 [on Ingrid Bergman] "I didn't do anything I've never done before, but when the camera moves in on that Bergman face, and she's saying she loves you, it would make anybody feel romantic."
61 I don't hurt the industry. The industry hurts itself, by making so many lousy movies - as if General Motors deliberately put out a bad car.
62 Do I subscribe to the [Laurence Olivier] school of acting? Ah, nuts. I'm an actor. I just do what comes naturally.
63 [on the untrained beefcake stars of the early 1950s, many of them picked up for screen tests from sidewalks and gas stations] "Shout 'gas' around the studios today, and half the young male stars will come running."
64 I made more lousy pictures than any actor in history.
65 You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi.
66 The only thing you owe the public is a good performance.
67 Acting is like sex: you either do it and don't talk about it, or you talk about it and don't do it. That's why I'm always suspicious of people who talk too much about either.
68 The whole world is three drinks behind. If everybody in the world would take three drinks, we would have no trouble.
69 I hate funerals. They aren't for the guy who's dead. They're for the guys who are left alive and enjoy mourning.
70 The only good reason to have money is this: so that you can tell any SOB in the world to go to hell.
71 I don't approve of the John Waynes and the Gary Coopers saying 'Shucks, I ain't no actor -- I'm just a bridge builder or a gas station attendant.' If they aren't actors, what the hell are they getting paid for? I have respect for my profession. I worked hard at it.
