Happy Birthday: Lauren Bacall

Happy Birthday to Lauren Bacall, also known as Betty Perske, who is 87 today. I have seen a lot of her films, but my favorites are still the ones she made with Humphrey Bogart. I don't care about their age difference. They were marvelous together. My favorite Bogie and Bacall collaboration is 'The Big Sleep' with 'To Have and Have Not' following close behind.

I've read some of Bacall's autobiography. What I have read so far has been very entertaining and quite humorous. I love her stories about Droopy, her cocker spaniel, as well as her romance with Bogie. Yes, I know those are two very different subjects, but they are both awesome to read about.
