I was sad to read that the woman I always regarded as the sexiest movie star ever, Lauren Bacall, died yesterday. She was 89 years old.
To me, she seemed to represent all that was quintessentially classic about Hollywood, utterly feminine, sultry, sexy, yet unattainable. She was (to me, at least) unique even among her peers in the hierarchy of stardom. From her classic movies with Humphrey Bogart to her later solo efforts, she dominated the screen.
I can’t adequately describe her in words. I’ll let the final scene of her debut movie, ‘To Have And Have Not’, say it all. Click over there to see it for yourself.
