Today we are going to bring some of the filmography of one of the greatest legends in the history of cinema, the incredible actor Humphrey Bogart. Here, the intention is to bring the best that our beloved “Bogie” has in his career, with films of the genres noir, drama and crime that certainly deserve to be seen. It’s also worth saying that the films on this list are only a small part of everything the actor has done well. Let’s go to the list!
10º – The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (John Huston, 1948)The film follows the paranoid search of some men for a supposed place where there would be a great amount of gold, gaining its substance exactly by unraveling the psychological decline of each character in this lost journey. Belonging to John Huston’s cinema, ‘The Treasure of Sierra Madre’ works with the most negative layer of the human species, showing how the figure of money can corrupt the essence of a person. Of course, the impeccable performance of legendary Humphrey Bogart stands out.
9º – Key Largo (John Huston, 1948)A man travels to an old friend’s hotel for a few days. However, when he arrives at the place, the man realizes that the hotel is dominated by mafiosi. The film gains its substance when a storm leaves everyone trapped in the hotel, making truths emerge that will put lives in danger. ‘Passions in Fury’ is a more rustic film for what we were used to in the 1940s, using a cruel plot with its central characters and with the spectators.
8º – Conflict (Curtis Bernhardt, 1945)After falling in love with his wife’s sister, an unhappy man in his marriage decides to architect a plan and murder his wife. The whole substance of the film is contained in the man’s attempt to hide the evidence of his participation in the crime, elevating an electrifying atmosphere at every scene. Much less recognized than it should be, ‘Conflicts of the Soul’ is a pearl of the suspense and noir of the 1940s. A daring film that puts us in the footsteps of a sociopath. The film gets even bigger with the supreme performance of Humphrey Bogart in front of the protagonist.
