Epigram

27 Jul

As Lauren Bacall once said and I agree:

“IMAGINATION  IS  THE  HIGHEST  KITE  ONE  CAN  FLY.”

Lauren Bacall born Betty Joan Perske, September 16, 1924) is an American film and stage actress and model, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks.

She first emerged as leading lady in the Humphrey Bogart film “To Have And To Have Not” (1944) and continued on in the film noire genre, with appearances in Bogart movies “The Big Sleep” (1946) and “Dark Passage” (1947), as well as a comedienne in “How To Marry A Millionaire” (1953) with Marilyn Monroe and Designing Women” (1957) with Gregory Peck. Bacall has also worked on Broadway in musicals, gaining Tony Awards for “Applause” in 1970 and “Woman Of The Year” in 1981. Her performance in the movie “The Mirror Has Two Faces” (1996) earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Acadamy Award Nomination.

In 1999, Bacall was ranked 20 of the 25 actresses on the AFI’s 100 Years….100Stars list by the American Film Insitute. In 2009, she was selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to receive an Academy Honorary Award “in recognition of her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures.”

    This woman was always dressed to the nines as they say, hounds tooth, silk, high waisted pants and her dark smoky voice, back in the 1940s when every actress sounded like Minnie Mouse. # I Love Lauren Bacall and watch all her films. Plus she had good taste too, she married Boggie LOL.
