His performances in numerous films from the Classical Hollywood era made him a cultural icon In 1999, the American Film Institute selected him as the greatest male star of classic American cinema.
Bogart began acting in Broadway shows after World War I. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, he began his movie career in Up the River, a comedy directed by John Ford. The film also starred Spencer Tracy;
Bogart played the romantic role in a part as large as Tracy's, despite
Bogart's much lower billing. Bogart appeared in various supporting
parts, struggling for several years, sometimes portraying gangsters due
to his resemblance to John Dillinger. He was highly praised for his work in The Petrified Forest (1936), which was his big break into the Warner Bros.
