Many of you youngsters, may not know who this is..... But, she was a wonderful actress. I enjoyed her movies very much.

 

   

 

 

Actress Lauren Bacall dead at 89:

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall star in 'The Big Sleep' from 1946.

 

"With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall," the estate of the Bogart family said on a verified Twitter account.

Bacall was married to Bogart from 1945 until his death in 1957. They had two children.

The public knew her as Lauren, the screen name hung on her by director Howard Hawks, while friends used her given name, Betty. Bogart simply called her "Baby" in a love story that ended prematurely with his cancer death in 1957.

Bacall was only 19 when Hawks cast her in her first movie, 1944's "To Have and Have Not," as an American girl who shows up at a seedy hotel in Martinique. She won a place in Hollywood history with her sexy query to Bogart, "You know how to whistle, don't you? You just put your lips together - and blow."

Bacall and Bogart were married the next year after he ended his turbulent third marriage to actress Mayo Methot. Bacall and Bogart went on to star together in "The Big Sleep" (1946), "Dark Passage" (1947) and "Key Largo" (1948).

She appeared in more than 30 other movies, including "Young Man With a Horn" (1950), "How to Marry a Millionaire" (1953) and "Murder on the Orient Express" (1974).

Much of Bacall's allure came from what was known as "The Look," a sexy but soft glance. She explained it by saying: "I used to tremble from nerves so badly that the only way I could hold my head steady was to lower my chin practically to my chest and look up at Bogie. That was the beginning of 'The Look.'"

After Bogart's death in 1957 at age 57, Bacall had a well-publicized affair with Frank Sinatra and a stormy eight-year marriage to actor Jason Robards that produced a son, Sam, who would become an actor.

Hopefully nobody. Though if you are a soap fan Charles Keating from Another World passed away on Friday so if you know who he is then you've got 3.
