2014 - The Year in Review (Census) LAUREN BACALL (1924-2014)
Native New Yorker Lauren Bacall rose to prominence through a series of movies with Humphrey Bogart (to whom she was married for twelve years until his death in 1957) "To Have and Have Not", "Dark Passage" and "Key Largo". She was just as "at home" on Broadway as she was in Hollywood, winning Tony awards for her roles in Applause (1970), and "Woman of The Year" (1981). In 1996 she won a Golden Globe award for her performance in "The Mirror Has Two Faces" Lauren Bacall also married another accomplished actor Jason Robards, but that marriage ended in divorce. This much loved, trend setting actress died of a stroke at the age of 90.
