The first of eight programmes in which Alexander Walker recalls the screen careers of the cinema's brightest stars. 1: Humphrey Bogart
He could play a gangster and turn his near-lisp into a snarl, or a trench-coated crusader down Raymond Chandler 's mean streets, or a romantic loner waiting for
Ingrid Bergman to walk into his bar, or even a grizzled old soak going up-river with Katharine Hepburn. Humphrey Bogart created more classic roles than maybe any other star and, as one of the great movie heroes, he's never gone out of fashion - or affection.
