American actor of great notability who won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in "The African Queen," 1951. For his roles in "Casablanca," 1943 and "Caine Mutiny," 1954, he was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar. After WW II, he was one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood with films that included "High Sierra" and "The Maltese Falcon."
The son of a successful doctor and a book illustrator, Bogart was upper-middle class, raised comfortably in upstate New York. However his dad had a ferocious temper and his mom could barely voice her feelings. He was often left with servants who were abusive. After being expelled from Andover Academy he joined the Navy near the close of WW II.
From the Navy, he went to Broadway, but his career developed slowly. In the '30s he began getting film roles, usually a second-string player in villain roles. His first big break came with "The Petrified Forest," 1936.
Bogart met 19-year-old Lauren Bacall on the set of "To Have and Have Not," 1944. He was on his third marriage, a battling affair from 1938 with alcoholic actress Mayo Method, and fell deeply in love with Bacall. They married on 5/21/1945 and had two kids, Stephen, 1949 and Leslie, 1952. A first-time father at 49, he was not a hands-on dad to his kids even though the last 12 years of his life were probably his happiest. Despite the May-December nature of their romance, Bogie and Bacall enjoyed one of the most steadfast of Hollywood's romances.
In 1956, he was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus and had surgery on March 1 to remove the diseased portion. Reduced to 65 lbs, he died a year later, on 1/14/1957, 2:10 AM, Holmby Hills, CA.

LMR quotes biographer Jeffrey Meyers, "Bogart," 1997, which gives the date from Bogart's school records at Andover and his personal records in the Navy. The biography made no reference to a time of birth. Warner Bros gave out his d.o.b. as 1/23/1899, and that has been repeated ever since. The time of 1:30 PM came from Marc Penfield, spec. The January 23 date was given Kaye and DeJersey with 6:37 AM spec. Circle No.565 gives the same date. Richard Ideman quotes Lauren Bacall, "He was not even sure of his birth date, let alone the time" In February 2008, Sy Scholfield quotes an online article by Barbara and David P. Mikkelson, "Birthday of Reckoning" (2007?) that says: "If Bogie was really born on 23 January it was news to him, as he always celebrated his birthday on 25 December and listed it as such on official records (such as his marriage license). Moreover, as Bogart biographers A. M. Sperber and Eric Lax noted:
For years, Humphrey Bogart's birth date would be a matter of dispute, the official date of December 25, 1899, dismissed as so much studio hype. This is one case where the legend turns out to be the truth; for, while his birth certificate appears to be lost, the Ontario County Times, which kept tabs on the region's notables, announced in its January 10, 1900, issue: "Born: at New York, Dec. 25, 1899, to Dr. and Mrs. Belmont DeForest Bogart, a son."
