Wow! You really got into it. Humphrey Bogart was my hero in the movies you mentioned. The picture I saw in the restaurant was a close-up of his face and his cigarette was hanging out of his mouth, just as you described.
He died of heart failure. He organized a party at his home and during the party, he got tired. He went up stairs to get rest. A few minutes later, he called for someone to carry him back down to the party. He didn't want to miss anything. He had a heart attack and died. This is one account of how he died. I saw his story on TV . He was 59.
In real life, he was a really nice person. He helped many young starts get their chance at the big time. Word is that his baby picture was the original picture on the Gerber baby food jars! Yes, that's him!

Did You Know?
The legendary film actor Humphrey Bogart was known for playing a range of tough characters in a series of films throughout the 1940s and 1950s, including The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and The African Queen. The men he portrayed often possessed a cool, hardened exterior that occasionally let forth a suggestion of romantic or idealistic sentimentality. Bogart also had a unique method of smoking cigarettes in these pictures - letting the butt dangle from his mouth without removing it until it was almost entirely consumed. It is believed that this habit inspired the current meaning of "bogart," which was once limited to the phrase "Don't bogart that joint [marijuana cigarette]," as popularized by a song on the soundtrack to the film Easy Rider, among other things. Today "bogart" can be applied to hogging almost anything.

I never checked into these facts for their validity. I saw it on a Bio about his life.
That is interesting information you discovered. Every one of those descriptive words ( synonyms) described a parrotlet to some degree. There's even an official word " bogey " used in golfing!
You've heard in this forum many times about how people named their p'lett. Many people said that they didn't name their bird until they determined their personality. I think I named Bogie properly. He even died young, like Bogart, but my Bogie did not smoke or drink!
" Here's looking at you, Kid! " ( quote by Bogart).
