[what is this?]

Humphrey Deforest Bogart was born near New York, USA. An actor and chess enthusiast he was also a fairly strong amateur player, as evidenced by his draw with Samuel Reshevsky in a simultaneous exhibition. He included a chess position from one of his correspondence games in his most famous movie, Casablanca, although the position was disturbed during shooting. He was a USCF tournament director and active in the California State Chess Association, and a frequent visitor to the Hollywood chess club. In 1945, he and his wife, Lauren Bacall, appeared on the cover of Chess Review.

  kingfu: Excellent work, wwall!

We have been speculating about this game for years.

And now here it is!

  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.

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!

  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.

  brankat: This was quick! Thank You so much <CG> for including Reshevsky-Bogart game in the Database.

  Benzol: <brankat> I'm pleased it's finally appeared too. See my post of January 3rd 2008 on the previous page of this forum.

  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.

  TheFocus: Happy Birthday Bogie!
Oct-03-15  The Kings Domain: I've always liked the fact that one of my favorite actors was a Chess enthusiast.

It's too bad there are no recorded games of Paul Henreid, Bogie's "Casablanca" co-star, who was said to be a strong player.

Dec-02-16  Bruce Graham: Bogie is back!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: So no CG games by his father Belmont DeForest Bogart (1867 1934).
Mar-03-17  morfishine: Bogie was quite a good player noted for his enthusiasm for chess, for the most part


Mar-03-17  morfishine: <TheFocus> Please, do us all a favor, and stop wishing "Happy Birthday" to corpses

Its plain nonsense that only serves to artificially increase your post total
