He didn't look the part. He fought with executives and, sometimes, colleagues. His private life was marked by struggles with alcohol and bad relationships. But he rose to the top of the Hollywood heap and has never really surrendered his post. Humphrey Bogart has been dead for nearly 50 years, but he remains one of the most recongisable stars in the world. With films like The Maltese Falcon and Casablance, he gave movie audiences some of the most memorable characters ever to grace the silver screen. This definitive portrait is enriched by Lauren Bacal''s rare home movies of her husband on location, at home and on vacation.
Born to British music-hall performers, Charlie Chaplin began touring with vaudeville groups before appearing in his first film in 1914. Later that year he appeared in Kid Auto Races at Venice carrying a cane and wearing the derby hat and droopy trousers that characterised his legendary "Little Trap" character. A co-founder of United Artists Pictures, Chaplin's successful silent film career continued until the mid-thirties, long after "talkies" had become the norm. Join Biography for a rare look at a figure who continues to influence the filmes we see today.
