    The African Queen

    I’d have to go with “Casablanca”, I think. But I like him very much, too, in “In A Lonely Place”.

  • Jack

    Has to be”The African Queen”

  • Drmarvl

    The Maltese Falcon, but they were all great ones.

  • Jack

    However….just saw “To Have and Have Not” for the very first time(believe it or not) and I throughly enjoyed it

  • Nancy

    The Caine Mutiny and those “strawberries” followed by my next favorite, Sabrina.

  • Jack

    Good point made by Drmarvl…..I truly have not seen a Bogey movie that I did not enjoy thoroughly!!

  • M. Shamamian

    The Maltese Falcon, but it’s nice to learn that some people thoroughly enjoyed great ones like “Racket Busters,” “Crime School,” “Swing Your Lady,” “The Return of Doctor X,” ad nauseum….

  • Christina

    Most definitely “The African Queen.”

  • Kate

    Oh, I gotta go African Queen. I love all his movies including the great Dark Package. But it’s like choosing which chocolate is the best out of a master chocolatier’s studio.

  • Maria

    “The Maltese Falcon” is my favorite. I’d also like to nominate one of Bogart’s later and lesser known films, “In a Lonely Place”. Not a typical Bogart role.

  • Cathy

    Probably High Sierra & then Dark Passage.

  • Tisha Holsey

    My favorite Humphrey Bogart movie is The Two Mrs. Carrols, which starred Barbara Stanwyck, Alexis Smith and Peter Godfrey.

  • Marisa

    One of the best is To Have and Have Not! I love Lauren Bacall in that too!

  • Nikki

    African Queen! Hands down my fav.

  • Steven John Bosch

    May I split my vote? Bogart, later in his career, could successfully play an ordinary man who faces up to big challenges and (Charlie Allnut in The African Queen), or a mean little man who goes after what he wants with ferocity but is destroyed by the getting.

  • Terry

    I would have to say my favorite is ‘The Left Hand of God’- Having his co-star Gene Tierney is always a big plus!!

  • Lynn

    It’s impossible to decide between The African Queen and Casablanca, both so wonderful.

  • Allison

    “Sabrina” gets my vote.
