They say celebrity death usually comes in threes. On Monday, it was Robin Williams. Before that, it was JJ Murphy of Game of Thrones. On Tuesday, it was movie legend Lauren Bacall who left us at 89.
She was only 19 when she co-starred with future husband Humphrey Bogart in "To Have and Have Not", and would make a few more films with "Bogie", as well as the radio drama, Bold Venture, playing Sailor Duvall opposite Bogart's Slate Shannon. In the 70's, Bacall turned to Broadway, and earned a pair of Tony awards, including one for "Woman of the Year". Her lone Oscar nomination, unbelievably, came for "The Mirror Has Two Faces", in which she co-starred with singer-actress Barbra Streisand. However, the Academy would eventually recognize her body of work and award her an honorary Oscar a few years later, perhaps to make up for the oversights of years past.
As Sam Wilson pointed out over at Mondo 70, Bacall made a guest appearance on, of all things, Family Guy (though The Simpsons would've made more sense, in this writer's opinion), not too long ago. Adding her presence to a live-action series, be it, say, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, or even a silly comedy like Community would've made headlines for sure. As Sam and others have also noted, her passing marks the end, almost, of a golden era in Hollywood.
Rest in peace.
