As a pickup truck transporting a collection of large sized barrels leaves San Quentin prison, one of its shipments topples over and rolls down a roadside hill. From it sprouts recently convicted convict Vincent Parry who then perilously makes his way to San Francisco where he plans to uncover the truth about his wife’s murder for which he claims to have been wrongfully accused. It is in San Francisco that Vincent luckily makes the acquaintance of one Irene Jansen (Lauren Bacall), a lonesome woman who, through a few degrees of separation, has ties to Vincent and hopes to assist him in his plight, particularly when a common foe, Madge Rapf (Agnes Moorehead) visits Irene, claiming that Vincent is on the loose and will surely find and kill her as well. With so much heat on his tail, »

Lauren Bacall, who left us last week after an astonishing 70 years of making movies, was one of the most beautiful women ever to grace a movie screen and the first golden age Hollywood star I ever fell for. With her unmistakeable features—those eyebrows, those lips—she must have been one of the easiest stars to capture in an illustration and thus a gift to poster artists. For most of her career, however, while she was never less than a star, she was rarely a leading lady, playing co-star to her great love Humphrey Bogart in four of her first five movies, then to Charles Boyer, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable, Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, Rock Hudson, Gregory Peck and so on. As a result, she rarely appeared solo in posters and is often dwarfed by her male co-stars. »

Lauren Bacall, one of the last links to Hollywood’s Golden Age, died August 12 at 89 in her Upper West Side apartment, 70 years after shooting to stardom in her first film, Howard Hawks’ To Have and Have Not, opposite her future husband Humphrey Bogart. Bacall is best remembered for that film (in which she famously provides instructions about how to whistle) and the three others she made with “Bogie”—The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo—before his untimely death in 1957. But contemporaries also remember her political activism at a time before it was common for celebrities to involve

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.

When she died on Tuesday night, Lauren Bacall left behind an incredible work record—and a mythic Hollywood persona.
While the latter lives on best in rumors and anecdotes, the former is worth revisiting onscreen. Leaping into Hollywood legend with the flick of a match in 1944’s To Have and Have Not, Bacall made a name for herself as one of Hollywood’s darkest femme fatales, following up her work with Humphrey Bogart with The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947), and Key Largo (1948). But Bacall’s work extended well past the golden age of Hollywood to appearances onstage and even guest spots on television. »

With her sleepy, seductive eyes and patrician, pack-a-day voice, the actress enters the room of Humphrey Bogart’s world-weary fishing-boat captain, Harry Morgan. She calls him “Steve” even though that is not his name, and offers him money to help him get out of a fix—we get the impression that it’s merely the latest in a long line of fixes resulting from hard luck and muddled politics that Bogie’s character will have to get out of. He stubbornly refuses her offer. Pride and all that. She falls into his lap and plants a kiss on his unexpecting lips. »

“Just be careful. She doesn’t suffer fools.” That was the advice a publicist gave me just before they put me on the phone with Lauren Bacall about 20 years ago. She was promoting a TNT movie, The Portrait, and as a writer-producer on The Arsenio Hall Show I had persuaded the powers that be to book her on the show — even if, on the surface, she wasn’t the typical kind of contemporary guest we often had on the show. Quite frankly, I just wanted to meet Lauren Bacall, to just hear that legendary sultry voice on the other end of the phone. So I set about doing the pre-interview and apparently passed the “no fools” test because I found her to be a pussycat.

Following the sudden, tragic suicide of comedian Robin Williams, the hits just keep on coming with news from THR that legendary leading lady Lauren Bacall, frequent co-star and real-life wife of Humphrey Bogart, has passed away at 89 years old. The sultry icon died yesterday morning after suffering a stroke in her home in New York City. Bacall is one of the last actresses still living from Hollywood's golden years, having starred in many classic films. Bacall's romance and career go hand-in-hand as she met Bogart before her first movie, Howard Hawks' To Have and Have Not in 1944, when she was 19, and Bogart was 44. Following her first film, she moved on to Graham Greene's Confidential Agent, before reuniting with Bogart again for the classic The Big Sleep, based on Raymond Chandler's novel of the same name. They continued to work together for two more films in a row with Dark Passage, »

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.

Just one day after Robin Williams passed away, another acting legend is now gone, Lauren Bacall. The Oscar-nominated actress suffered a massive stroke at her home and died on Tuesday morning. She was 89 years old. Bacall is best known for her work with her husband Humphrey Bogart in such movies as "To Have and Have Not," "The Big Sleep," "Dark Passage" and "Key Largo." She later co-stared in "Sex and the Single Girl" and "Murder on the Orient Express." The actress received only one Oscar nomination for her supporting role in "The Mirror Has Two Faces," but was the recipient of an honorary Oscar in 2010. Her latest projects included voice work on "Family Guy" and the Oscar-nominated animated film "Ernest and Celestine." »
Lauren Bacall, who has passed away at the age of 89, was, of course, most famous for her marriage to Humphrey Bogart, with whom she made four films: To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo. James Agee called her "the toughest girl a piously regenerate Hollywood has dreamed of in a long, long while." Bacall also won two Tonys and worked with Marilyn Monroe in How to Marry a Millionaire, Gregory Peck in Designing Women, June Allyson in Woman’s World and Nicole Kidman in Lars von Trier's Dogville. » - David Hudson »
Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89 at her home in New York, after a big-screen career that spanned seven decades. The news was broken by the Bogart estate, with the statement: “With deep sorrow for the magnitude of our loss, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall.” Perhaps best known for her on-screen partnership with her first husband Humphrey Bogart, Bacall starred in such noir classics as The Big Sleep, Key Largo and Dark Passage.

One of the most iconic figures of Hollywood’s Golden Age is no longer with us. Today, sultry-voiced actress Lauren Bacall died at the age of 89 after suffering a massive stroke, multiple sources confirm.
Bacall is perhaps best known for her partnership with fellow Hollywood legend Humphrey Bogart, both on-screen and off. In 1944 classic To Have and Have Not, Bacall’s first big screen role (and the one in which she delivered her most iconic line: “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”), the sparks between the two ignited one of the film industry’s most enduring love stories. The pair married the next year and went on to star in such 1940s classics as The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo, staying together until Bogart’s death in 1957. Bacall was later engaged to Frank Sinatra and married another acting legend, »

Lauren Bacall Dies
Bacall reportedly suffered a massive stroke at her New York City apartment, which led to her death, reported CNN.
Bacall’s break came in 1944’s To Have and Have Not in which she played Marie “Slim” Browning opposite Humphrey Bogart’s Harry Morgan.
