#AceHistoryNews – Aug.12: She shot to fame in her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not.” In a career that spanned nearly 70 years, Bacall made more than 40 films, including “The Big Sleep,” “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “The Mirror Has Two Faces.” She was born Betty Joan Perske but began using the last name Bacal, part of her mother’s maiden name, after her parents divorced and Howard Hawks, who directed Bacall’s big-screen debut, dubbed her Lauren #AceHistoryDesk
https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6810 During the making of her debut film—in which Bacall famously utters the line: “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”—she and the then-married Bogart, who was more than twice her age began an affair. Married in 1945, Bogart and Bacall became one of Hollywood’s iconic couples and made three more films together. Her marriage to Bogart ended when the actor died of cancer in 1957.
Despite her achievements, Bacall realized the public likely would always associate her with Bogart. As she said in a 1999 Newsday interview: “I’ll never get away from him. I accept that. He was the emotional love of my life, but I think I’ve accomplished quite a bit on my own.” #LaurenBacall #RIP #filmhistory #AceHistoryNews
