McKnight, 51, was found unresponsive inside the downtown communications center about 1 a.m., according to a post on the LAFD blog  by department spokesman Brian Humphrey. McKnight, a 31-year veteran of the department, was nearing the end of a five-hour shift supervising dispatchers when he collapsed, Humphrey said. “Despite an exhaustive effort by colleagues who immediately performed CPR, applied a defibrillator and instituted advanced life-support measures, Captain McKnight proved beyond medical help and was declared dead Monday morning at the Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center,” Humphrey said.

Hugh Hefner has a confession. "I think I opened the first Playboy Club because of 'Casablanca.' I wanted to have a place where people came to hang out as they did at Rick's," admits the pajama-clad founder of the Playboy empire. The Oscar-winning 1942 "Casablanca," starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman as the reunited lovers Rick and Ilsa, is the favorite film of Hefner, a serious movie buff. "It has everything -- not only Bogie's charismatic character, but lost love, redemption, patriotism, humor -- it had a great musical score.

The saga of Humphrey, the lost and wayward humpback, is tale of a whale that won't go away. It's a whale of a tale that took place in October when Humphrey took a sharp left turn from the Pacific Ocean at the Golden Gate Bridge and began a monthlong journey through an inland waterway that attracted thousands of sightseers and scientists.

The humpback whale that became internationally known as Humphrey during its 26-day journey to the heart of California swam under Golden Gate Bridge on Monday and returned to the Pacific Ocean. The 40-foot whale swam within several hundred yards of San Francisco's waterfront--surfacing every few minutes to the cheers of hundreds of people--and then swam under the fog-shrouded bridge at 4:35 p.m.

Republican Sen. Gordon J. Humphrey has triggered a controversy in a GOP congressional race by saying that a woman candidate should not be running because she has two small children. About two dozen supporters of Republican Betty Tamposi denounced Humphrey outside the Statehouse on Wednesday and characterized his remarks, made in an interview in the Union Leader of Manchester, as silly, insulting and irresponsible.

NORTH LAS VEGAS - Rooting somewhere out in the bushes on Bob Combs' suburban farm is a grouchy old character nicknamed Humphrey, who likes to eat grass and doesn't take kindly to most people. Humphrey happens to be a hog, a pot-bellied pig. He's a full-time resident at one of the more unusual pig farms in America, and a feature story this week in the Los Angeles Times highlights RC Farms and its unique approach to food recycling. For 50 years now, with a knee-slapping sense of humor straight out of the 1960s television show “Green Acres,” the gray-haired Combs has turned castoff food from local casinos into feed for his 2,500 pigs.

Now the legendary tough guy, who died of cancer 55 years ago at the age of 57, is having his own film festival. The first annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival is set for May 2-5 in Key Largo, Fla. Bogart and his wife Lauren Bacall starred in the 1948 noir classic "Key Largo," for which Claire Trevor earned a supporting actress Oscar as a boozy gangster's moll.

No other star of Hollywood's golden age continues to hold audiences in quite the way that Humphrey Bogart does. The American Film Institute voted him the greatest male star of all time, and his influence as cultural icon and representative of a certain distinctively American masculinity and noir cool is greater now than ever, half a century after his death. He has not lacked for able biographers ? there appear to be about 40, including the definitive 1997 volume by A.M. Sperber and Eric Lax ?

The first great antihero of American movies, Humphrey Bogart remained the epitome of nonconformist cool for generations after his death. He succumbed to cancer in 1957 at age 57, and the course of his afterlife was sealed three years later by Jean-Luc Godard's era-defining "Breathless," in which Jean-Paul Belmondo played a Parisian thug who borrowed his insouciant swagger from the movies of his beloved "Bogey. " The Bogey of the collective imagination was defined by his contradictions: a vulnerable tough guy and a cynical idealist.

Is it just me, or are there moments every summer when the desire to escape life as you know it absolutely overwhelms? You've already seen every decent film out there and a few that aren't. Take heart and time travel back to the '50s with the lovely "Sabrina" and the sweet innocence of Audrey Hepburn and a different sort of moviemaking entirely -- quieter, gentler, careful with its emotional punches.
