My wife and daughter sat down to watch "How To Marry A Millionaire" (Dir: Jean Negulesco, 1953) last night and I watched a little bit of it. Despite the incomparable Marilyn Monroe starring in this film , I was more captivated by Lauren Bacall.
Still taken from www.premiumhollywood.com (from "The Big Sleep", Dir: Howard Hawks, 1946)
And then I remembered a picture that I took earlier in the week;
"The tape recorder jammed about half-way through the interview. Miss Bacall had had enough by this stage and she told me so in no uncertain terms. That was it. 'Party's over, curly. Maybe we'll try this again when your training wheels come off', she said, before slipping on her sunglasses and heading for the door. I didn't even get a picture. My Editor's gonna be pissed.
AND she finished all my cigarettes.
Still a class act, though."
Thanks for reading!
