Lauren Bacall – In Memoriam

  1. Lauren Bacall was really something. She and Humphrey Bogart did sizzle up the screen in the four movies they appeared in together. An article in the New York Times discusses in depth her performance in their first outing together: To Have and Have Not. It explains that her role was developed and shaped by the director very deliberately.
    But whatever was done, she is famous for the “whistle” scene, which has been replayed in the news here following her death.
    A few years ago, I watched the four movies again and they were wonderful: To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo.
    It was obvious that the two were crazy about each other, and not merely acting.

  2. I just read her obituary in the New York Times, and it mentions that she loved acting in “Key Largo.” It had a great cast. The argument between Edward G. Robinson and Humphrey Bogart is a classic.
    I think I have to rewatch the four movies with Bogart and Bacall.
