Lauren Bacall with her honorary Oscar following The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 2009 Governors Awards. Acceptance speech after the cut.
Excellent profile piece published by Vanity Fair in 2011:
To Have and Have Not
She’s one of the last of Hollywood’s golden-age stars—the girl who stole Humphrey Bogart’s heart at age 19 and has been grappling with their dual legend ever since. Now 86, Lauren Bacall looks back on a lucky, if often difficult, life as she gives it straight to Matt Tyrnauer, talking about the effect of Bogie’s fame on her and their kids; her very brief engagement to Frank Sinatra; her stormy second union, to Jason Robards; and why she hates the Oscar she received, in 2009.
