Lauren Bacall has died at 89

Aug. 12, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

Oscar-winning actress Lauren Bacall, one of the leading ladies in the Golden Age of Hollywood, has died. TMZ reported the news and cited family members as its source who said she had a massive stroke Tuesday morning at her home. The Humphrey Bogart has since estate tweeted: “With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall.”

Bacall is best known for her roles in KEY LARGO, THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES, DESIGNING WOMAN, and TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. She was married to Humphrey Bogart from 1945 until his death in 1957. She later married Jason Robards in 1961 before getting a divorce in 1998. She leaves behind three children.

She was definitely one of the greats in my house growing up; I can’t even begin to count the amount of times KEY LARGO played for us. Bogart and Becall’s pictures were even scattered throughout our house so much so that I thought they were my grandparents! Let us know if you were fortunate enough to have a favorite Becall role in the comments below.

Our thoughts go out to Becall’s friends and family.

Sad times

It's sad, that's two proper legends!
It's also sad so few apparent film fans have paid their respects on here.

Celebrity death rules of 3... Who's Next???

This is just a shitty week. First Robin, now Lauren... I fear we are going to lose some of the most beloved people in the world this year. I hope Adam West got those cyborg parts installed, because I will die when he dies.

A legendary actress who delivered great roles until the end

My first introduction to Lauren Bacall was THE BIG SLEEP, another film she co-starred with Bogie. Their chemistry was electric; no wonder they hooked up in real life.

RIP, Lauren Bacall. You lived a packed life and delivered many great performances.

Another Hollywood icon gone, another sad day for me. RIP, Ms. Bacall. I always enjoy watching your movies, particularly the one with Humphrey Bogart, God rest his soul. Love you best in The Dark Passage and Murder On The Orient Express.

You know why I hate this world? The fact that the first thing that came to my mind while reading this was "okay, who's gonna be the third?"

Rest in peace.
