Legendary actor Humphrey Bogart appeared in 75 movies, many of them classics like The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, and The African Queen, for which he won an Oscar for Best Actor.

In 1944, he starred in To Have and Have Not with Lauren Bacall, who became his fourth wife. A famous line from the movie, delivered by Bacall to Bogart, was, "If you need anything, just whistle." So when Bogart died in 1957, Bacall placed a whistle inscribed with the line inside the silver urn with his ashes.
