Lauren Bacall Dies at 89

August 13, 2014


Golden age Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall, the actress whose husky voice and seductive looks would serve as a goal for the scientists who created Scarlett Johansson, has died. The cause of death was reportedly a massive stroke suffered Tuesday morning in her home. She was 89.

Bacall quickly rose to prominence with her first role in Howard Hawks' 1944 adaptation of To Have and Have Not, in which she uttered her famously sexy instructional guide on whistling. That was also where she met her husband Humphrey Bogart, whom she would share the screen with several more times and share a life with until his death in 1957. She would later receive an Academy Award nomination for 1996's The Mirror Has Two Faces, and although she lost there, in 2010 she finally got her Oscar in an honorary award. She continued working until her death.
