Nice, no spin interview with Lauren Bacall, direct and unpretentious...
16 September 2011 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is an enjoyable interview with Lauren Bacall that gets off to a good start with her tale of being discovered for TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT, her surprise kiss from Humphrey Bogart during shooting of the film, and her subsequent surprise at how much of an impact her appearance in the film had at the film's first sneak preview in California when preview cards singled her out for stardom.

And then, of course, she goes on to tell Robert Osborne about her other films with Bogart, their subsequent marriage before filming DARK PASSAGE, and his love of sailing which meant spending every weekend on his yacht where he found his freedom and she found she got seasick easily.

A bit about his illness (which he almost never talked about), her involvement in work during his ill period by filming DESIGNING WOMAN, her first comedy, with Gregory Peck. Then, after his death, her return to New York and the theater for some stage work including the highly successful CACTUS FLOWER and APPLAUSE (her favorite theater role).

She reveals the surprising fact that she's really still insecure, something one would never guess, as Robert Osborne mentions, from her on screen persona as a strong female.

Very interesting chat, some interesting tidbits about fellow performers, and ending with Bacall calling Robert "a prince." You can see the mutual admiration between them is genuine.
