"Here’s looking at you, kid." Tough guy Humphrey Bogart is Rick, an expatriate club owner in Morocco, nursing a broken heart after his sweetheart (Ingrid Bergman) disappeared from his side in Paris when the Nazis invaded. When she re-enters his life with her fugitive, resistance-leader husband (Paul Henreid), sparks fly. With an incredible cast that includes Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Conrad Veidt. Winner of three Oscars, for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.


THE AFRICAN QUEEN
1951, Paramount , 105 min, Dir: John Huston

Gin-soaked captain Humphrey Bogart decides to take pity on skinny, psalm-singing spinster Katharine Hepburn after her brother is killed in a German attack during WWI - and instead, winds up falling in love, and ferrying her downriver to launch a suicidal assault on a German warship!


THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE
1948, Warner Bros., 124 min, Dir: John Huston

Based on the novel by famous recluse B. Traven, TREASURE stars Humphrey Bogart in one of his greatest performances as flea-bitten adventurer Fred C. Dobbs, who hooks up with fellow packrats Tim Holt and Walter Huston to search for gold in the mountains of Mexico. The film that launched a thousand imitations with the classic refrain, "We don’t need no badges." Winner of Academy Awards for Best Picture, Director (John Huston) and Supporting Actor (Walter Huston).
