The best 40's detective movie of them all and the movie that made Bogie a star
3. The Big Sleep (1946)

Private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by a wealthy family. Before the complex case is over, he's seen murder, blackmail, and what might be love.

The plot is a bit confusing (you need to read the book to know why), but one of the best film noirs ever.
4. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)
Passed | 126 min | Adventure, Drama, Western
Two Americans searching for work in Mexico convince an old prospector to help them mine for gold in the Sierra Madre Mountains.

Both Bogie and Walter Huston give great performances in this one.
5. The African Queen (1951)
PG | 105 min | Adventure, Drama, Romance
In WWI Africa, a gin-swilling riverboat captain is persuaded by a strait-laced missionary to use his boat to attack an enemy warship.
Votes: 75,879 | Gross: $0.54M
A wonderful movie that is almost entirely the interaction of its two main characters, played by Bogie and Katherine Hepburn.
6. In a Lonely Place (1950)
Not Rated | 94 min | Drama, Film-Noir, Mystery
A potentially violent screenwriter is a murder suspect until his lovely neighbor clears him. However, she soon starts to have her doubts.
This is another of Bogart's little known gems. It's not as fun to watch as most of his movies, but it is great nonetheless.
7. Key Largo (1948)
Not Rated | 100 min | Action, Crime, Drama
A man visits his war buddy's family hotel and finds a gangster running things. As a hurricane approaches, the two end up confronting each other.
A great character study that involves both suspense and romance.
8. The Caine Mutiny (1954)
Not Rated | 124 min | Drama, War
When a U.S. Naval captain shows signs of mental instability that jeopardizes the ship, the first officer relieves him of command and faces court martial for mutiny.
Votes: 26,712 | Gross: $21.75M
I think that this is Bogie's best performance (and he had so many of them) and the story is excellent as well.
9. Beat the Devil (1953)
Approved | 89 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
On their way to Africa are a group of rogues who hope to get rich there, and a seemingly innocent British couple. They meet and things happen...
This is one of Bogart's little known gems. It's done tongue-in-cheek and done well.
10. We're No Angels (1955)
Not Rated | 106 min | Comedy, Crime, Romance
Three Devil's Island escapees hide out in the house of a kindly merchant and repay his kindness by helping him and his family out of several crises.
Bogie shows all sides of his acting personality in this very enjoyable comedy.
