The fashion world looks back on Lauren Bacall

14 August 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Lauren Bacall had one condition when the Fashion Institute of Technology wrote recently to ask if it could turn hundreds of personal garments she donated into an exhibition about her style.

"She said, 'Yes, it's fine, as long as it's high-quality - Diana Vreeland style,'" recalled Valerie Steele, director of The Museum at Fit.

Throughout her years, Bacall hadn't forgotten the fashion editor who plucked her from a Seventh Avenue showroom floor and delivered her to Hollywood's door via the pages of Harper's Bazaar at age 19.

And next spring, Steele's museum - with the help of Fit graduate students learning how to curate - will fulfill its promise in a show focused on five designers who helped define Bacall's subtle seductiveness, her sophisticated mix of classic femininity and raw masculine authority in fashion.

Bacall, who died Tuesday at 89, was a fashion darling of a unique sort. A model »

Talk about true star quality – that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family.”

R.I.P. Lauren Bacall, Sultry Star Of Stage And Screens

14 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

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.

Remembering Lauren Bacall... and the sexiest movie debut of all time in 'To Have and Have Not'

13 August 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

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. »

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 1924-2014

12 August 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

“Stardom isn't a profession,” Lauren Bacall once said. “It's an accident.” In her case, it was a very happy accident. But today brought the sad news that the screen siren, star of stage and cinema, has died at the age of 89.Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske in New York’s Bronx borough in 1924 to a middle-class family. Enthralled by the theatre from an early age, she started working as an usher to earn money during high school before appearing in plays both on and off Broadway. But it was her striking looks that got her noticed, as a modelling job on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in 1943 caught the eye of Howard Hawks’ wife Nancy. She encouraged her husband to screen test the then-19-year-old, and brought her to Hollywood. It was Hawks who critiqued her voice, leading her to lower the register and create her iconic, breathy sound. »

12 August 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Oh, maybe just whistle," said 19-year-old Lauren Bacall, giving future husband Humphrey Bogart "The Look" in "To Have and Have Not." "You know how to whistle don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow." 70 years later, Lauren Bacall has died at age 89 in her home, the Humphrey Bogart estate has confirmed, of a massive stroke. The New Yorker known as Betty Bacall had a long and illustrious life, from her early days as Howard Hawks' discovery in such films as "To Have and Gave Not" (clip below) and "The Big Sleep" to later successes in Hollywood ("Key Largo," "Written on the Wind," "Designing Woman," "Sex and the Single Girl," "Harper" and "Murder on the Orient Express") and on Broadway, winning Tonys for "Applause" and "Woman of the Year."

Lauren Bacall passes away at the age of 89

12 August 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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." Bacall was a fixture of the golden age of Hollywood appearing on screen opposite Bogart, her first husband, several more times including films such as "The Big Sleep" (1946), "Dark Passage" (1947) and "Key Largo" (1948). She also starred alongside Marilyn Monroe in "How to Marry A Millionaire" (1953), with John Wayne in "Blood Alley" (1955), with Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood »

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. »

Appreciating the relaxed genius of the late James Garner

20 July 2014 1:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There have arguably been bigger stars in television history than the late James Garner, but none who ever made it look quite so easy. Garner, who reportedly died in his home on Saturday at the age of 86, first hit it big in 1957 with "Maverick," a comical Western in which he played Bret Maverick, a Wild West cardsharp who was as quick on the draw as he was with a quip. At a time when TV was dominated by Westerns — and very solemn ones, at that — Garner was happy to play the same material lighter, to occasionally be the clown or the guy who gets punched in the face, and yet always made it clear  that Maverick could easily kill you if he wanted to — it just wasn't his preferred way of doing things. Garner left Maverick after only a few seasons (and had spent much of that time alternating episodes »

Sympathetic Doesn't Have To Mean Likable

16 June 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jennine Lanouette for ScreenTakes created and narrates this excellent video "refuting the notion that a character must be likable to be sympathetic". Her examples draw comparisons between characters such as Paul Newman's title character in Harper, Quvenzhane Wallis in Beasts of the Southern Wild, Melanie Laurent in Inglourious Basterds, a load of characters from Margin Call, James Bond in From Russia with Love, Woody Harrelson in The People vs. Larry Flynt, Charlize Theron in Monster and, of course, Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street where she says, "We're notified in the opening scene we're not supposed to like Jordan Belfort." Hmmmm, and yet the argument against this film was that it glorified all that Belfort didc Interesting. Give the video a watch (though, be warned, it's Nsfw), it's a fantastic look at creating sympathetic characters out of unlikable people and just might have you »

Tom Cruise: Where to after 'Edge of Tomorrow' fizzle?

9 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Tom Cruise movie that immediately came to mind in the opening scenes of Edge of Tomorrow, the entertaining Groundhog Day-meets-Starship Troopers movie that opened Friday, wasn’t one of his previous science-fiction blockbusters. It was A Few Good Men.

In the new film, directed by Doug Liman, Cruise plays Major William Cage, a charming, TV-ready spokesperson for the global military who’s successfully recruited millions of volunteers for the war against invading aliens. But he’s hardly a soldier — he coasted through Rotc and then ran an advertising agency — and the commander in charge (Brendan Gleeson) of »

Actor best known for playing John Walton Sr in the Us television family drama The Waltons

Ralph Waite, who has died aged 85, worked as a social worker, Presbyterian minister, publicist and book editor before turning to acting and landing the part as patriarch of a struggling American family in the wholesome Us television drama The Waltons (1972-81).

For nine series and more than 200 episodes from 1972 to 1981, as John Walton Sr – "Pa" – he was the quiet tower of strength bringing up a family of seven during the depression and second world war with his wife, Olivia (Michael Learned).

The barefoot Virginia hillfolk operated a sawmill on Walton's Mountain, in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. Their trials and tribulations, based on Earl Hamner Jr's autobiographical novel Spencer's Mountain, were seen through the eyes of the eldest son, John-Boy (played by Richard Thomas for most of the run, then Robert Wightman), a »

Guest Blog: Author Michael Connelly on Bringing Harry Bosch to the Screen

10 February 2014 11:31 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Neal Thompson is Senior Editor at Amazon Books. He is also a journalist & author, amateur photographer/videographer, and compulsive reader-writer. Neal interviewed Michael Connelly, creator of Bosch, a new Amazon Original Pilot.

In 1992, a seasoned crime reporter named Michael Connelly published his first novel, the story of a body in a drainpipe, a bank robbery, and police corruption, based partly on a true crime that had occurred in La. Featuring Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch, a Vietnam vet turned Lapd detective, The Black Echo won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, established Connelly as a new voice in the mystery/thriller world and Bosch as one of the more complex characters in modern crime fiction.

Now, more than a dozen novels later, Bosch is coming to the little screen. Amazon Studios has produced the first episode in a hoped-for series entitled Bosch, co-written by Connelly and with Titus Welliver (who has »

A spy movie in need of shadows: the blunt force reboot of Jack Ryan

17 January 2014 6:27 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kenneth Branagh, as a villainous Russian oligarch, is the highlight of this thrashabout featuring CIA spies and familiar tropes

The best scene in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit shows someone's first murder. CIA analyst Jack (Chris Pine) has just been picked up from Moscow airport by his driver, a big Ugandan who drives him to his hotel, helps him carry his bags to his room, then calmly turns, unholsters a pistol and starts firing. What follows is a Bourne-ish kinetic thrashabout – sinks are smashed, porcelain shattered, doors splintered. The brawl ends with Ryan drowning his assailant in the bathtub. "In this much water", Jack later recounts in rattled tones to his CIA boss Harper (Kevin Costner), who looks at Ryan's still shaking hand and tells him, "better after than during".

It's been a while since I felt that kind of mortal dread in a movie. Ok, so it's not Paul Newman »
