Humphrey Bogart

Born: 25 December 1899, New York City, New York, USA
Died: 14 January 1957, Los Angeles, California, USA
Humphrey Bogart was a supporting actor who steadily worked his way up to become a leading man in the 1940's and 1950's. There is some speculation about the accuracy of his date of birth, possibly being the result of a publicity push, although more recently it was confirmed that he was actually born on Christmas Day.
