Because Humphrey Bogart remains my favorite actor of his era it’s hard not to know of the great romance between Bogie and Bacall.

Her beauty was a breath of fresh air at the time of her debut as well as her commanding presence.


It’s also because of my love for all things Bogie that I kept tabs on her career as the years went by.

Another connection to the golden days of Hollywood and Bogart has been lost.

I love one of her great quotes in defending old films that went something like this…..”If you’ve never seen a movie before, than it’s new to you.”

I use this quote often when talking older films to people who normally wouldn’t give them a second look.
