My favorite Battling Bogarts story (probably apochryphal):

Cab pulls up to the Bogarts' residence, Humphrey crawls in, bombed out of his skull, lays flat on his stomach on the seat, says 'Take me to Ciro's'.

Driver glances over his shoulder, sees a knife sticking out of Bogart's back and makes a beeline for the hospital instead.

According to the story, the knife wasn't plunged in deep enough to do anything more tha superficial damage; but as I say, it might be one of those apochryphal Tinseltown anecdotes (though when you think about that was known about their marriage . . . it could well have happened).

The old line applies: "There was madness in his Methot."
