|Apr-07-10|| ||BishopBerkeley: Amusing Chess quote: "Life is a game of Chess. I don't know how to play Chess." From the trailer to the film, "Exit through the Gift Shop" a film about the street artist Banksy (among others). The person quotes is the filmmaker Thierry Guetta.|
(: ♗ Bishop Berkeley ♗ :)
|Jul-16-10|| ||wrap99: I see "stung by a dead bee" but I think it was "bit".|
Also, Kramer us mentioned as a chess playing director. I am certain the strongest chess playing director by far is Marcel Sisniega.
|Aug-16-10|| ||Check It Out: Where's the game he played with Reshevsky?|
|Aug-16-10|| ||drnooo: Kibrick wuold be my guess as the best chessplaying director, though perhaps I am mistaken. As for the movie, that has to be We're no Angels. There are pictures of Bogart playing chess with Lorre and Walter Slezak, and as for Passage he looks too old here for that and who on the set of Queen played chess? Not Hepburn or Huston or Morley likely. Betcha four to one its Angels.|
|Sep-17-10|| ||kingfu: Thank you drnooo.
I listened to Malcolm McDowell talk about Kubrick and chess. Sir Malcolm said he and Stanley played a lot while filming "A Clockwork Orange." But did not play after the movie was done. McDowell lamented not being able to play Kubrick after that.
John Huston, the director of African Queen, might have played chess. He did everything else!
We're No Angels makes sense. Internet Movie Database has gone sideways. Many previously included details are now left out.
Ingmar Bergman had a Chess Game between the "protagonist" and Satan in one of his films.
Chess is even mentioned in "Chisum" , a John Wayne film!
Maybe we should research and collaborate on a book about Chess in film!
|Oct-21-10|| ||wwall: The game should be added to the database as real. It first appeared in Chess Life, March 5, 1956, page 6 in John Collins' column of games by USCF mwembers.|

|Nov-05-10|| ||kingfu: Excellent work, wwall!
We have been speculating about this game for years.
And now here it is!
|Nov-05-10|| ||James Demery: Bogie played Paul Henreid on the set of Capablanca. Henreid said Bogart was a fine player , but that Henreid was slightly better. Bogart didn`t win a single game.|
|Dec-07-10|| ||whiteshark: <A hot dog at the game beats roast beef at the Ritz.>|

|Dec-07-10|| ||BobCrisp: A bogey in the nose beats wax in your ear.|
|Dec-25-10|| ||talisman: merry christmas Bogey.|
|Dec-25-10|| ||Jim Bartle: Christmas at the Bogarts: http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l...|
|May-13-11|| ||perfidious: <kingfu: "To Have and Have Not"
Eddie (Walter Brennan to Lauren Bacall) : "Was you ever stung by a dead bee?"
A minor point-as this is my favourite movie-here's the way it actually went:
|Dec-25-11|| ||talisman: happy birthday! merry christmas!|
|May-12-12|| ||CAPPYJAK: Life cannot be understood. Just lived as best as possible and get as much as possible from it.|
This is now the very best of chess sites only made possible because Daniel Freeman is the brilliant programmer.
|May-22-12|| ||brankat: This was quick! Thank You so much <CG> for including Reshevsky-Bogart game in the Database.|
|May-22-12|| ||Benzol: <brankat> I'm pleased it's finally appeared too. See my post of January 3rd 2008 on the previous page of this forum.|
|May-22-12|| ||brankat: <Benzol> I did see Your post, and all the others: I went through all 5 pages yesterday. It was then that I learned of the Reshevsky-Bogart game in the first place :-)|
Actually I was looking for something completely different, but couldn't find it here, nor on L.Bacall page. A few years ago there was a link to a photograph of Bogart with GM S.Gligoric where Gligo is analyzing a game and Bogie standing by the table, looking on. I don't know whether this link still exists, and if so, where would it be.
|Dec-25-12|| ||waustad: Certainly the best known birthday player today. There are more games than I remember from Last time I looked here. I'll have to check them out.|
|Dec-25-12|| ||talisman: happy birthday Bogey.|
|Aug-07-13|| ||GumboGambit: According to Rybka, he should have refrained from attacking his partner in "Treasure of the Sierra Madre". A sounder move would have been to stay together as a group as split the gold evenly.|
|Aug-07-13|| ||WannaBe: <GumboGambit> Well, my WhoDidIt 3.0 running on Windows 3.1 with x486 CPU with 8K of RAM disagrees with you. =))|
|Dec-25-13|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday Mr.Bogart!|
|Dec-25-14|| ||TheFocus: Humphrey Bogart was on the USCF Board of Directors in the 1940's.|
|Dec-25-14|| ||TheFocus: Happy Birthday Bogie!|
