Iconic Golden Age Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall passed away on August 12, 2014, at age 89.
At the age of 19 (!), she was cast opposite Humphrey Bogart in 1944's "To Have and Have Not", and she (and we) never looked back.
A string of Bogart and Bacall pictures followed, not to mention one of the most legendary of Hollywood marriages.
The best of those pictures can be found in this DVD set, which I fully recommend.
Bogie and Bacall the Signature Collection.
In it, you'll find the aforementioned "To Have and Have Not", "The Big Sleep" -- and two personal favorite pictures of mine... THIS ONE and THIS ONE!
Ms. Bacall and Bogart also "appeared together" in certain animated productions, like "Slick Hare" (1947) directed by Friz Freleng, where the couple shared screen time with Bugs Bunny.
Yowp was kind enough to run this "Bugsy and Bacall" illustration under his Tralfaz subsidiary -- and for borrowing it, I offer him this dual plug in return.
Bacall and Bogart also were magnificently satirized in "Bacall to Arms" (1946) directed by an uncredited Bob Clampett.

Perhaps not so oddly, given her "appearances" in animation, Lauren Bacall's last completed role would be to ACTUALLY perform a voice on a 2014 episode of FAMILY GUY!
