Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor in The Maltese Falcon (1941)

“The Bogart cult that has emerged today is very understandable.  There he is, right there on the screen, saying what everyone is trying to say today….’I hate hypocrisy. I don’t believe in words or labels or much of anything else. I’m not a hero. I’m a human being.  I’m not very pretty. Like me or don’t like me.’….Bogie was for real”. – Mary Astor
