Humphrey Bogart

Humphrey Bogart | Rare celebrity photosHumphrey Bogart having rubber leaches applied to his chest for the filming of The African Queen. Director John Huston wanted to use real leeches and brought in a leech-breeder with a tank full of them. It made Bogart queasy and nervous and ultimately rubber leeches were used. A close-up of a real leech was shot on the breeder’s chest.
