Lauren Bacall—one of the last living Hollywood legends—died yesterday. This gorgeous portrait of her shows off her youthful beauty. She turned heads with those big green eyes set wide apart on her face, those lips, and that hair! She was sassy, sultry, and sexy with a husky voice and a lanky figure, but somehow, when her head was tilted down and her eyes were looking up, she was irresistibly adorable too. And so many films! My favorite of hers is probably How to Marry a Millionaire… I'm embarrassed confess how many times I've actually seen it….Twenty?… Thirty? I'm also a fan of Key Largo,Designing Woman,The Big Sleep, and Murder on the Orient Express. Most recently she voiced the character an old mousein the charming English version of the animated French film Ernest & Celestine. I like that she was always a straight shooter, saying exactly what was on her mind. Take for example that famous line she cooed to future husband Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not...
You know how to whistle, don't you Steve?
You just put your lips together and blow.
Cue the wolf whistle, and rest in peace 'Slim.'
