Up to now his life has been a constant fight against doing the expected thing. A hard-boiled gangster on the screen in such pictures as Warner Bros. “High Sierra,” Bogart refuses to put on a sinister act when he’s out in public. Bogart is a native-born New Yorker, but he has never visited Grant’s Tomb, the Aquarium or the Empire State Building. Although he was a_ youngster much interested in the stage at the time “Abie’s Irish Rose” was making a record run on Broadway, he never saw it. Up to now he has resisted people who have been trying to high-pressure him with the story that “Gone With the Wind” is something you must read. All this doesn’t constitute a pose. It means simply that Bogart likes to find his fun in his own way, not make fun a must_ because someone else says it is. He likes to play “hard guys,” but not card-board caricatures of gangsters. He insists that they be believable, three-dimensional personalities. Which is why he was so delighted at the opportunity to play Roy Earle “the last of the Dillinger gang” in W. R. Burnett’s story, “High Sierra.” Earle has an earthy, believable quality about him, even in the moments when he chose the wrong road back from a life of crime. In fact, Bogart would have liked to have played Tom Joad in “Grapes of Wrath,” or George in “Of Mice and Men.” He believes that the contemporary scene is the most interesting source of dramatic material. Bogart was born on Christmas Day. From his father, Dr. Belmont Bogart, graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School, Humphrey inherited a_ skeptical curiosity about men and events and from his mother, Maud Humphrey, Delineator Magazine artist, a love of the artistic and of good writing. As a youngster, he was no shark in school but made “gentleman’s grades,” neither very bad or very good. He sailed boats and ran on track teams as a youngster, being pretty good in both the dashes and the low hurdles. In 1915 when he was going to Trinity School, he was a member of the National High School Rifle championship team — interesting to note in the light of his now famous career as a film gunman. When World War I came along most of his friends joined the army. The non-conformist joined the Navy, after he succeeded in fooling recruiting officers a bit about his age. After the war he worked as an adjustor for the Pennsylvania Railroad, but the job wasn’t exciting enough. About this time he and young Bill Brady, son of the famous producer, decided that they would find out what this motion picture business was all about. The elder Brady was running studios over at Fort Lee, N. J., at the time and Bogart went over as office boy. He rose to a business manager’s job. Then he served as stage man Bogart Is Veteran Of Many Film Jails It is a tense scene in “High Sierra.” Humphrey Bogart is the star and Henry Hull enacts a doctor who has just dressed the wound of a fleeing gangster. Hull is supposed to say, “If you don’t go now we'll both do a stretch at San Quentin.” But instead he said, “If you don’t go now we'll both do a stretch at Sing Sing.” “You’ve got the right scene, lads,” Director Raoul Walsh cuts in “but you’re in the wrong jail house.” “High Sierra” is the new Warner Bros. picture starring Bogart and Ida Lupino. Still HB228; Mat 109—15c . . « likes to play “hard guys” ager of “Drifting,” when Alice Brady put the play on in New York. With this back-door entrance into the theatre, he got a role in “Ruined Lady,” and to his surprise found that here was something he really got a kick out of doing. Undiscouraged when critic Alexander Woollcott described his as “less than adequate” in his role, he went on to anything he could get in other plays. “Nerves,” a bad play but a personal triumph for Bogart, caused Woollcott to reverse his previous decision and heap on the praise. Other success followed and he went to Hollywood to make some pictures. Of these, he liked only “Up The River.” Then back to New York, where he had the spectacular record of appearing in five flops in one season. The next season he played Duke Mantee in “The Petrified Forest.” It was that part that established him as a superlative player of desperado roles. When the play was sold to Warner Bros. for motion picture production, Bogart went to Hollywood to play the Mantee role — remained to become the screen’s No. 1 gangster. Bogart talks with his friends, plays cards with his acquaintances. He keeps in good physical trim, prefers golf and yachting as outdoor sports, chess as indoor sport. He married actress Mayo Methot in 1938, and theirs is one of the happiest of marriages. Joan Leslie Starts Busy Life on Screen There may be busier girls in Hollywood’s screen colony than Joan Leslie but her recent record is something of a challenger. As soon as Joan finished her final scenes as the in she made a Shoo rt) n which she was starred, ; went to work in “The WagMat 107—15c OMS Roll at Joan Leslie Night.” Not only did she do her work in pictures but kept up her classwork in the Warner studio school as well.
