At the time of his death on January 14, 1957, Humphrey Bogart weighed only 80 pounds. A longtime smoker, he died in his sleep at his Hollywood home following an operation for throat cancer. He was 57 years old. His remains were cremated and interred at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California. His wife, Lauren Bacall, had a small gold whistle buried with him, inscribed with a reference to the first movie they filmed together: "If you want anything, just whistle." One of the most celebrated actors of the twentieth century, Bogart was nominated for three Academy Awards and won a Best Actor Oscar for The African Queen (1951).
