Festival Reviews

laurenbacallLauren Bacall (1924–2014)

Born: September 16, 1924 in The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA
Died: August 12, 2014 (age 89) in New York City, New York, USA

Married to:
Jason Robards (4 July 1961 – 10 September 1969) (divorced) (1 child)
Humphrey Bogart (21 May 1945 – 14 January 1957) (his death) (2 children)

A legend involves the past. I don’t like categories. This one is great and that one is great. The word “great” stands for something. When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise. His whole behavior is so shocking. It’s inappropriate and vulgar and absolutely unacceptable to use your private life to sell anything commercially, but I think it’s kind of a sickness.
