HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE, Lauren Bacall, 1953.Lauren Bacall (1924-2014)
The distinctively attractive Lauren Bacall seemed more worldly-wise in her films than she really was. Born with the real name of Betty Joan Perske, Lauren Bacall made her name in 'To Have And Have Not (1944)', when she starred opposite Humphrey Bogart and famously gave him some whistling tuition. Lauren married Bogie shortly afterwards. She went on to put her marriage above her career, but still appeared in the big hitters 'The Big Sleep (1946)' and 'How To Marry A Millionaire (1953)'. When Bogart died of cancer in 1957, Lauren's career saw her continue to win acclaim, winning a Tony award for both 'Applause' - a stage musical adaptation of 'All About Eve (1950)' - and 'Woman Of The Year', in 1970 and 1981 respectively, and plaudits for her performance in Agatha Christie's 'Murder On The Orient Express (1979)'.

Lauren Bacall died on August 12th, 2014, after a massive stroke at her home in the famous Dakota apartment building in New York City. She had been born in the same city nearly 90 years earlier, on September 16th, 1924. Lauren had been a one-time neighbour of former Beatle John Lennon, and she actually heard him being shot, when he was murdered in 1980. Lauren said of Lennon on the Larry King show in 2005: "I liked him a lot."

Always good value on chat shows, Lauren Bacall received an honorary Oscar in 2009, and also received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her performance in 'The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996)'. Lauren's relationship with Bogart was arguably the most famous in Hollywood history, and they were married for 12 years.
