Very sad, and just a month before her 90th birthday.

I am so glad that I saw her on stage in Applause, which Classic Movie Buff's will know, was the musical version of All About Eve, in which she played Margo Channing.

RIP Lauren, and to quote one of the numbers from Applause, "You were one of a kind!"

There are still a few left: Rhonda Fleming (91) and Luise Rainer (105!).

Rhonda Fleming starred in the 1953 3D movie "Inferno" which was released on 3D Blu-ray on Aug. 10 to coincide with her birthday.

What a broad the late Ms Bacall was in every sense going by all the tributes!It does seem to be one of those years were were losing a lot of the old names.

Were definitely getting to the point relatively soon were there wont be any of the golden era left
For me Ms Bacall was so iconic that this is a significant watershed.

Ps Luise Rainer is 104!

Great onscreen chemistry ,if not arguably the best onscreen chemistry for any hollywood pairing of that era.

Great actress - great lady and such chemistry with Bogart during the golden age of cinema. Quite a few current actresses need to take a long hard look at her performances - sheer class.
RIP.

About time I re-watched 'Murder on the Orient Express', I reckon.

Great actress and she carried a certain style and grace about her which was in evident in the way she delivered her lines. This is one the great movie scenes between her and Humphrey Bogart from The Big Sleep:

Morrissey shares his thoughts on Richard Attenborough, Lauren Bacall and Dora Bryan (all of whom he met) on his True to You website.
