Surely, even with an impeccably cut linen Suit, no one would find that particular over weight nasty creature attractive?, maybe I'm old fashioned?

I'm not sure why Cairo's homosexuality matters, since it doesn't matter to the film. Anyway, I voted for "Casablanca" for the usual reasons (as someone already pointed out), although I do enjoy the Big Sleep almost as much. I watched the "Maltese Falcon" for the second time a few days ago, but it's not one of my favourites - Bogie's character is simply too tough in the film and I prefer him in his more world-weary roles like "To Have And Have Not".
For Bogie fans, I recommend finding a copy of the largely forgotten "Sirocco" (spoiler warning). It's not one of his best, but it's not one of his worst and it's unquestionably solid entertainment. It's definitely a good "fedora and trenchcoat" film. I'd like to own a copy, but as far as I can tell it was only released on VHS.

I voted for Casablanca for the same "usual reasons." I also really enjoy Sabrina. I enjoy the character bogey plays and the way he plays it, and Audrey Hepburn is absolutely wonderful always.
My favourite Bogart film? Treasure of the Sierra Madre ,Just had to be added.
