Lauren Bacall, Betty Joan Perske, born: 1924 in New York City Bacall began her career as a model, gracing the cover of Harper's Bazaar at age 19, before moving on to acting. She landed a starring role in To Have and Have Not (1944) opposite Humphrey Bogart. The pair married a year later, and went on to make five films (and two children) together, including The Big Sleep (1946) and Key Largo (1948). Her movie career cooled somewhat in the '60s and '70s, and she turned to Broadway, winning Tony Awards for her roles in Applause (1970) and Woman of the Year (1981). She was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Barbra Streisand's mother in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), and most recently appeared with Nicole Kidman in two films: Dogville (2003) and Birth (2004). (She was also married to actor Jason Robards (1961–69), and is the mother of actor Sam Robards.
For her screen debut, Hawks cast Bacall opposite Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not (1944). Being sexy and alluring, Bacall earned the nickname The Look.. Bacall found herself lauded as the most sensational newcomer of 1944. She also found herself in love with Humphrey Bogart, whom she subsequently married. Bacall's had a disappointing solo turn in Confidential Agent (1945 and before long she was turning in first-rate performances in such films as Young Man with a Horn (1950) and How to Marry a Millionaire (1953).
Bogart's death in 1957 after a long and painful bout with cancer left Bacall personally devastated, though in the tradition of her show-must-go-on husband, she continued to perform to the best of her ability in films such as Designing Woman (1957) and The Gift of Love (1958). In the late '60s, after Bacall's second marriage to another hardcase actor, Jason Robards, Jr., she received only a handful of negligible film roles and all but dropped out of moviemaking. In 1970, Bacall made a triumphant comeback in the stage production Applause, a musical adaptation of All About Eve in which she played grand dame Margo Channing, a role originally played by Bette Davis in the film version.
