Lauren Bacall


Betty Joan Perske, better known to the world as Lauren Bacall, died today at the age of 89.  In a career that spanned seven decades and over 70 on-screen appearances, Bacall was possibly best known for her on and off screen collaboration with Humphrey Bogart.  The two made four films together, include 1944's "To Have And Have Not", 1946's "The Big Sleep", 1947's "Dark Passage" and one of my favorite movies of all time, 1948's "Key Largo", from director John Huston and also starring Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore and Claire Trevor.

Bacall and Bogart were married in 1945 and were together for over 11 years until his death in 1957.  The two were planning on a fifth film before Bogart would succumb to cancer.  Bacall was nominated only once for an Oscar and that wasn't until 1996's "The Mirror Has Two Faces" from director Barbra Streisand.  She did, however, receive an honorary Oscar in 2010.
