Another Fallen Star

There are so few of the great stars remaining from Hollywood's golden age, and Lauren Bacall was one of the brightest left to us. Over the decades, she had endured as a legend of that era.

It's famous show business lore that she and Humphrey Bogart were a team both on and off the silver screen. They married, had children, and parted only at Bogart's untimely death in 1957. The story of her trademark "look" is also well known; Bacall said she was so nervous on camera that she could only keep her head from shaking by lowering her chin and casting her eyes upwards.

Screen icons such as Bacall are unique and irreplaceable. It's some comfort that she will always shine on in her films.
