"Unless you really understand the water, and understand the reason for being on it, and understand the love of #sailing and the feeling of quietness and solitude, you don’t really belong on a #boat anyway. I think #Hemingway said one time that the sea is the last free place on earth." - #quote from #HumphreyBogart, pictured on his beloved #Santana, about his life-long love of sailing and the ocean

#HumphreyBogart loved #chess, was a very strong player, and played as often as he could. Here he is seen playing against #JoanBennett on the set of We’re No Angels. #Bogie was a tournament director for the #UnitedStatesChessFederation, and once played leading American grandmaster #SamuelReshevsky to a draw. It was #Bogart’s idea to make #Casablanca’s #RickBlaine a chess player. Bogie played chess by mail with soldiers during WWII, but was ordered to stop by the FBI, which believed the chess moves were secret codes.

Sixty years ago yesterday, #TheCaineMutiny premiered in #NYC. #HumphreyBogart, who served in the #USNavy during #WWI and loved the ocean and #sailing, relished playing #LtCmdrQueeg. The #film was a hit, finishing second at the 1954 #boxoffice to #BingCrosby’s #WhiteChristmas. #Bogie lost the #Oscar to #MarlonBrando for #OnTheWaterfront. Bogie had beaten #Brando a few years earlier, with his turn in #TheAfricanQueen besting Brando in #AStreetcarNamedDesire. This #movie inspired a young actor named Maurice Micklewhite to change his name to #MichaelCaine.
