I'm saddened to hear this. She was wonderful in "To Have and Have Not". http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/13/mo...t-89.html?_r=0

Been a tough year in the entertainment industry. She was one of my faves too. Still getting over Robin Williams.

Bacall delivered one of the sexiest lines in film history, with her "You just put your lips together and blow." How could Bogie not have fallen in love with her?

Bacall was the last of the glamourous icons, 16 in all, that Madonna included in her 1990 song Vogue.

Most of today's "stars" couldn't hold a candle against her. RIP.

She had elegance, style and grace.

Qualities rarely found today in the acting world. Sally Quinn has an article about her in the Wash Post today, much better than anything I could write.

Not to derail the thread, but I wonder if the lack of elegance, style and grace in most of the female (and male) stars these days is more a reflection of what we the audience want to see. Lots of skin, "reality" TV drama, extreme violence/gore, etc... seem to be the hallmarks of modern entertainment. True, such things "sell" when it comes to the box office and eyeballs (reflected in the sales of products advertised during commercials), but I can't help but wonder whether we as a culture are to blame for what passes for entertainment these days. It's almost like the transition from intellectual Greek dramas, tragedies and comedies, to the Roman colesium with its crude shows of gladiators, lions and persecuted people of the day.

I don't think I will ever tire of seeing "Key Largo". She was extremely good.

You do have a point.

Seems to me most are unclear on the concept of sensuality. Let it all hang out is not part of it.

Not sure if anyone saw this article on her in the Washington Post:

Lauren Bacall, always the life of the party - The Washington Post

Miss Bacall was also in another movie with a beautiful actress: "Murder On The Orient Express", with Ingrid Bergman.
