From my CNN newsfeed:
Actress Lauren Bacall has died, an official from the estate of her late husband, Humphrey Bogart, tells CNN. She was 89.
The husky-voiced Hollywood icon made five films with Bogart, including “To Have and Have Not” and “The Big Sleep.” She went on to receive two Tony Awards and an honorary Oscar.
And from the Los Angeles Times:
Her death was confirmed by Robbert de Klerk, the co-managing partner of the Humphrey Bogart Estate with her son Stephen Bogart.
“She passed away peacefully earlier today in New York,” according to family, de Klerk said.
She’s another one of those halcyon-days-of-Hollywood actors who simply seemed immortal, so this is a surprise. Bacall—dead? I met her once (a friend had a bit part in one of her plays), but of course this is the Bacall we remember:
If ever a woman could be described as “feline,” it was her.
