    Default It's raining actresses caught in car jams

    Lauren Bacall dies at 89.

    Gotta like that she was sung about by the Clash (2:45 mark) and guested on the Rockford Files.

    I recently watched The Sopranos the whole way through, and the absolutely weirdest fucking part of it was her cameo. Potentially the strangest thing I've ever witnessed on a television show.

    Also, I remember my friend's mom talking about how she was one of the first badass women in Hollywood to have standards about the roles she was offered. And so she got the reputation of being a bitch, as most assertive women do.

    May her stiff dead body be treated with the utmost respect and reverence.

    the sopranos cameo was odd, i liked it though.

    i need to watch more of her movies. the only one i can remember seeing on TCM that comes to mind is "how to marry a millionaire".

    The Big Sleep

    That's my favorite.

    Bogie and Bacall were SOOOO beautiful together on and off the screen.

    Of all the things Lauren Bacall can be remembered for, and there are a lot, being mentioned in a Clash song wouldn't have been where I started. And I have probably spent more time thinking about the Clash than anyone else on this board.

    May the worms riddling her rotting corpse feast in delight.

    An odd bit of trivia about the passing of Lauren Bacall on Tuesday: All 16 of the 20th-century stars immortalized in Madonna's “Vogue” are now dead. The famous black-and-white music video, directed by David Fincher, is an homage to the golden age of Hollywood.

    So, this photo is pretty much perfect:




    One thing that greatly impressed me about Bacall was her ability to adapt to changing acting styles. Many of her contemporaries from the 30s and 40s either stopped working in their later years or came across as too "actory" and old-fashioned on screen in their late work. From her early classics like The Big Sleep, to her work in the theatre, to later films like Birth, she remained commanding but never felt like an out of place relic. What a dame.

    The Big Sleep is perhaps my favorite noir, largely thanks to the chemistry and innuendo oneupmanship between Bogart and Bacall.
