Very unlikely, Bogey was too ill durng 56 which would have been the only time they could have met with bogey passing away in Jan 57. I don't see why they would have met prior to 1956 before ill health got to him.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Bogie didn't think much of Rock & Roll, nor Elvis ... although I'm sure his opinion would've softened had he lived past 1956.

Elvis and Bogie.
My favorite singer and my favorite actor.
Too bad they didn't meet. I don't think it would've turned out very good. Bogie was a heavy smoker and drinker and didn't like crowds of people.
I don't think that would have set well with Elvis or Bogie.

Did Elvis ever shag Lauren Bacall?

I guess Bogie and ol' Blue Eyes had equal thoughts regarding Rock'n Roll and Elvis.
Sinatra obviously later changed his mind about Elvis.
I'm not sure he changed his mind about Rock'n Roll, though...

I asked Lauren Bacall about this very thing a few years ago. She said that to her knowledge they never met, nor did she think Bogart would have known him (Elvis) had he walked up to him. No offense was meant to Elvis, it just wasn't Bogart's kind of music.
