Who Is Humphrey DeForest Bogart?

Humphrey was born 25 December 1899. Merry Christmas world!

He was born in New York, New York, USA, the son of

Belmont DeForest Bogart and Maud Humphrey.

 

He attended the private Delancey School until fifth grade, then the prestigious Trinity School. Later he attended the elite boarding school Phillips Academy, where he was admitted based on family connections. In 1918 Bogart was expelled. With no viable career options, Bogart followed his passion for the sea and enlisted in the U.S. Navy in the spring of 1918. Bogart was a model sailor who spent most of his sea time after the Armistice ferrying troops back from Europe.

 

After his naval service, he worked as a shipper and then bond salesman.

He also joined the Coast Guard Reserve. He made his stage debut as a Japanese butler in Alice Brady's 1921 play Drifting, nervously speaking one line of dialog. Several appearances followed in her subsequent plays. Preferring to learn as he went, Bogart never took acting lessons. He was persistent and worked steadily at his craft, appearing in at least seventeen Broadway productions between 1922 and 1935.

He played juveniles or romantic second-leads in drawing room comedies.
