Legendary actress Lauren Bacall passed away today of a stroke. She was 89.
Bacall is best remembered for her on stage and off stage partnership with Humphrey Bogart to whom she was married for a dozen years until his death in 1957. They appeared together in her debut film To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo. Bacall would later marry actor Jason Robards, Jr.
Some of her other film credits include Young Man with a Horn with Kirk Douglas and Doris Day, How to Marry a Millionaire with Marilyn Monroe, and Sex and the Single Girl with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood and Henry Fonda. Twice she co-starred with John Wayne two decades apart in Blood Alley and The Shootist.
Curiously, Bacall never received an Academy Award nomination until 1996 when she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in The Mirror Has Two Faces starring Barbra Streisand and Jeff Bridges.
