From her first turn opposite Humphrey Bogart as the spirited lounge singer Marie Browning in To Have and Have Not, Lauren Bacall was a screen presence like few others. A selection of clips:
To Have and Have Not (1944)
Lauren Bacall schools Humphrey Bogart on how to whistle. Directed by Howard Hawks, based on a novel by Ernest Hemingway.
The Big Sleep (1946)
Bogart and Bacall again, in a noir classic based on a Raymond Chandler novel. Directed by Howard Hawks.
Key Largo (1948)
You could do a whole feature on Bogart and Bacall all by themselves, but Key Largo wouldn't be the same without Edward G. Robinson's sneer. Directed by John Huston.
Murder on the Orient Express (1974)
Bacall is one star among many in Sidney Lumet's adaptation of the Agatha Christie whodunit, but it's hard to argue that she wasn't the one shining most brightly.
