Humphrey Bogart Movies: Quote 'The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of'

(See previous post: "Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall Movies.") Besides 1948, 1941 was another great year for Humphrey Bogart — one also featuring a movie with the word "Sierra" in the title. Indeed, that was when Bogart became a major star thanks to Raoul Walsh's High Sierra and John Huston's The Maltese Falcon. In the former, Bogart plays an ex-con who falls in love with top-billed Ida Lupino — though both are outacted by ingénue-with-a-heart-of-tin Joan Leslie. In the latter, Bogart plays Dashiel Hammett's private detective Sam Spade, trying to discover the fate of the titular object; along the way, he is outacted by just about every other cast member, from Mary Astor's is-she-for-real dame-in-distress to Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee Sydney Greenstreet.

John Huston's version of The Maltese Falcon is considered one of the seminal movies of the '40s; the Humphrey Bogart quote "The stuff that dreams are made of" is surely one reason for that widespread admiration. Personally, I much prefer the 1931 version, directed by Roy Del Ruth, and starring a smooth Ricardo Cortez as the cynical gumshoe. Admittedly, borrowing lighting elements from French and German movies and from Hollywood silents, veteran Arthur Edeson's black-and-white cinematography in the 1941 film is simply masterful, helping to make The Maltese Falcon the first official American film noir. (The 1936 Bette Davis version of the story, Satan Met a Lady, is a silly mess.)

The 1956 Columbia release The Harder They Fall, a boxing drama directed by Mark Robson, was Humphrey Bogart's last movie. He died of cancer at age 57 on January 14, 1957, in the Los Angeles area.
