Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske, September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014) was an American actress known for her distinctive voice and sultry looks. She was named the 20th greatest actress of the 20th century by the American Film Institute and received an Academy Honorary Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences “in recognition of her central place in the Golden Age of motion pictures.”
Humphrey Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957) was an American screen actor whose performances in such iconic 1940s films noir as The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and The Big Sleep earned him the legacy of cultural icon. During a film career of almost 30 years, he appeared in 75 feature films. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema. Throughout his career, he received three Academy Award nominations for Best Actor, winning one.
On May 21, 1945, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart married. Their wedding and honeymoon took place at Malabar Farm, Lucas, Ohio (the country home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield, a close friend of Bogart). Bacall was 20 and Bogart was 45; thus, she was nicknamed “Baby.”
This famous acting couple made only four films together. They are the film noir movies To Have and Have Not (1944), The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947) and Key Largo (1948).
