A Year with Kate: Long Day's Journey Into Night (1962)

20 August 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 Episode 34 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn enters the golden age of her career.

This late in A Year With Kate, I really didn’t think I could be surprised anymore. After 8 months watching 34 movies spread over 3 decades of Katharine Hepburn’s life, I believed that I had a pretty firm grasp on who Kate the Great was and how she performed. I espoused the popular wisdom that Kate was best when she played women similar to herself: strong women, smart women; women rarely beaten and never broken. None of these could prepare me for Mary Tyrone, the morphine addict in Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Katharine Hepburn, for the first and possibly last time in her career, played a completely crushed woman, and it’s unlike anything else she ever put to film.

Update August 14: Broadway will go dark: The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in memory of Lauren Bacall on Friday, August 15, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

One of the leading ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age died today after a stroke. The sultry, fiery Lauren Bacall was 89. MSNBC’s Thomas Robert broke the news in a tweet, and the Bogart estate has confirmed it. She was famous for starring — onscreeen and off — with Humphrey Bogart in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Dark Passage and Key Largo. In one of Hollywood’s great love stories, they married in 1945 and stayed together until his death in 1957. Four years later she married another acting legend, Jason Robards Jr.; they divorced in 1969.

Lauren Bacall’s Greatest Role: Herself

13 August 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Robin Williams died Aug. 11, fans and commentators talked about his best performances, from Mork to Patch Adams. But when Lauren Bacall died the following day, people remembered her for one indelible role: Lauren Bacall.

She was a good actress, but she never disappeared into a character. You couldn’t imagine her playing a mousy suburbanite or a low-iq bumpkin. And, offscreen, you couldn’t imagine her slipping unnoticed into a party or restaurant. When Variety reviewed her 1944 film debut in “To Have and Have Not,” the critic described her as “a young lady of presence.” And that presence served her well during a 70-year career. Audiences always knew who they were watching, and knew that this was a person who deserved attention.

Some of her best work was in supporting roles, such as the brash American socialite in Sidney Lumet’s 1974 “Murder on the Orient Express,” who could put »

Movie News: Golden Age Movie Star Lauren Bacall Dies at 89

13 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

New York – She had it all. Just like Bogie and, well, her. Lauren “Betty” Bacall accidentally became a movie actress, but that accident led to stardom, two marriages to famous actors and a long life of award winning performances. The 89-year-old star died of a stroke in New York City on August 12th.

She thought her marriage to Humphrey Bogart – who was 26 years older than her – would be her epitaph, but Bacall had so much more going for her through her career, she forged ahead and established her own identity. In that second act, it was the stage that became her main calling, as she won Tony Awards for her lead performances in “Applause” and “Woman of the Year” on Broadway. Her husky voiced, independent style was broadly appealing, especially in her early co-starring roles with Bogart.

Lauren Bacall: To Have Not 1924 – 2014

12 August 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Another light from the Golden Age of Hollywood has gone out with the sad news that actress Lauren Bacall has passed away aged 89. It is thought she suffered a stroke at her New York home. Born in Brooklyn in 1924, Bacall made her screen debut in 1944′s To Have And Have Not, directed by Howard Hawks. Aged just 19 she delivered the immortal line:

“You know how to whistle don’t you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.”

The “Steve” in question, Humphrey Bogart, was to play an enduring role in her life – the pair got married and became one of the most famous couplings in movie history until Bogart’s death in 1957. They made several films together, including The Big Sleep. She went on to marry fellow actor Jason Robards.

Bogart & Bacall: Screen Pairings Don’t Get Any Bigger & Better

12 August 2014 7:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Everyone is entitled to a favorite screen pairing – Taylor and Burton, Hepburn and Tracy, R2D2 and C3PO – but they simply don’t get any better than Bogart and Bacall.

Lauren Bacall – the surviving half of that duo for 57 years – has died at the age of 89. But her legacy as one of the great actresses has long been secured, both for the work she did with Humphrey Bogart – who she met, and soon married, via their first collaboration, “To Have and Have Not” – and what came after, not just in movies but on stage and television.

Still, any remembrance of Bacall has to begin with her roles opposite Bogart, a pairing so terrific and seemingly right that it tended to obscure the pesky details, like their 25-year age difference, or the fact he was still married when their by all accounts torrid affair began.

Remembering Lauren Bacall: Her 5 most memorable roles

"You know how to whistle don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together...and blow."

With her smoky, sultry-voiced delivery, unapologetically demanding presence and coquettish bedroom eyes, 19 year-old first-time actress Lauren Bacall caught the eyes of Hollywood, the attention of audiences around the world and the heart of her To Have and Have Not co-star, Humphrey Bogart. The pair married shortly after and went on to make three further films together (Dark Passage, The Big Sleep and Key Largo), not to mention two little projects of their own - children Leslie and Stephen. Though Bogart passed away in 1957, Bacall continued to act on the big screen and in theatre for over seven decades before her death earlier today from a stroke at age 89.

Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske in The Bronx on September 16, 1924. After taking classes at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, she earned a living as »

Hollywood has lost a second iconic voice in less than 24 hours.  Lauren Bacall, star of screen, stage and television, passed away at the age of 89 Tuesday. Born Betty Joan Perske in the Bronx, New York in 1924, Bacall was discovered by director Howard Hawks' wife Nancy after she saw a photo of her in Vogue magazine.  After flying her across the country for a screen test, Hawks transformed Betty into Lauren and cast her opposite Humphrey Bogart in his classic 1944 drama "To Have and Have Not."  And, as they say, "a star was born."

Lauren Bacall, Star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 89

12 August 2014 4:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lauren Bacall, the sultry blonde siren who became an overnight star via a memorable film debut at age 19 opposite Humphrey Bogart in Howard Hawks’ “To Have and Have Not,” died Tuesday of a suspected stroke at her home in the Dakota in Manhattan. She was 89.

The Bogart estate confirmed the news on Twitter.

Variety’s review of the 1944 film described her as “a young lady of presence,” and audiences immediately embraced her gravel-voiced and sultry persona. The voice was said to have come from a year shouting into a canyon. Regardless, “the Look,” her slinky, pouty-lipped head-lowered stare, influenced a generation of actresses.

After a 50-year career, she received her first Oscar nomination for supporting actress for her role as Barbra Streisand’s mother in 1997’s “The Mirror Has Two Faces.” Though considered a shoo-in, she didn’t win. However, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences gave her a 2009 Governors Award for life achievement. »
