Lauren Bacall would have been 93 today – here are some random videos from the great star’s career

Since Lauren Bacall was one of the first movie stars I became obsessed with as a kid (Elizabeth Taylor was the other, of course), I never forget her birthday.

It’s been just over three years since the movie icon and Broadway legend died just about a month before her 90th birthday.

She had such an epic life (husbands were Humphrey Bogart and Jason Robards, fiancee was Frank Sinatra) with great professional highs like the movies To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, How to Marry a Millionaire and The Mirror Has Two Faces and the smash Broadway shows Applause, Woman of the Year and Cactus Flower.

She became a star at 19 and worked in movies right up until near the end of her life with such later credits as Dogville, Manderlay, Birth and The Walker.

If you’ve never read Miss Bacall’s autobiography, By Myself, I highly recommend it! It won the National Book Award and is one of my favorite memoirs ever – absorbing from page one.

I’m so glad I got to interview Miss Bacall a few times including for an Orange Coast Magazine cover story. Below are some random videos of Miss Bacall that I especially like – I obviously loved her coffee commercials! Hope you enjoy.
