Remembering Lauren Bacall
Lauren Bacall, the legendary award-winning actress and Humphrey Bogart's partner off and on the screen, has died at the age of 89.
The managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate, Robbert J.F. de Klerk, says Bacall died Tuesday in New York. The sultry-voiced Bacall became famous with her first movie scene, opposite Bogart in 1944's "To Have and Have Not." Bacall went on to appear in scores of films, TV shows and stage productions. She was nominated for an Academy Award, won two Tony Awards and received an honorary Oscar in 2009. She and Bogart wed at Malabar Farm outside of Mansfield, Ohio in 1945. She never returned to Malabar Farm, but in the late 1990s, Bacall narrated a public television documentary about the farm's creator, famed novelist Louis Bromfield. Here are some excerpts of Bacall's work on the project called "Louis Bromfield, The Man Who Had Everything." The documentary was produced by Columbus-area resident Brent Greene.
