An undated publicity photo of Lauren Bacall, born September 16, 1924 in New York City.
With her instantly recognizable, alluring visage (dubbed “The Look”) and
a smokey voice that both seduced and abandoned, Lauren Bacall was a
screen star of the highest order, whose slow-burn of a career first lit
up Hollywood film noirs in the 1940s (such as “The Big Sleep” and “To
Have and Have Not”), before taking Broadway by storm. A two-time Tony
Award winner, and a National Book Award winner for her 1980
autobiography “By Myself,” Bacall also received a lifetime achievement
Oscar for her incomparable gallery of timeless work.
Bacall died on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, at age 89.
