Happy Anniversary, Humphrey Bogart! Tough guy with a sensitive side

Happy Anniversary, Humphrey Bogart (25 December 1899, New York City - 14 January 1957, Los Angeles) Birth Name: Humphrey DeForest Bogart

Bogart, the sensitive tough guy, was hounded by insecurity and a host of other personal demons, his upperclass background lending an innate dignity. “Look, I’m hardly pretty, he seems to say. I sound like gravel; I look rough and tough; and, honest, I don’t give you the soft, foolish answers the pretty boys will give you. You may not like what I say, but you better believe it.” -"Humphrey Bogart (Great Stars)" by David Thomson
