In the interview, CBS News' Harry Smith marvels at the staying power of Bacall's immortal line from "To Have and Have Not": "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and ... blow."

Bacall reminisces about her romance with Humphrey Bogart, which started when they met on the set of her very first movie.
