"I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world." Rick Blaine
Played By: Humphrey Bogart
Why He's On The List: As first stabs at romantic leading roles go, you really can't go past this one: Blaine has become the classic jaded romantic. If not quite an anti-hero, he somehow makes selfishness and cynicism cool - but of course goes on to make true love and fighting for the Resistance so much cooler. He did wonders for the white dinner jackets, and who cares if everyone misquotes him? It's the sentiment that counts.
Finest Hour: Stitching up the Nazis a treat.
