Obituary: Lauren Bacall (1924-2014)

The great film noir actress, Lauren Bacall, has died of a stroke. I loved her films with her husband Humphrey Bogart–The Big Sleep, Key Largo, Dark Passage. And To Have and To Have Not--the awful Hemingway novel adaptation. As soon as I finish work on the grant, and write all the syllabi for all the classes, I want to see all of these films again. I cannot think of a better way to spend an evening. She was great in India. Beautiful woman, wonderful actress, good politics. Rest in peace, Lauren Bacall.
