Some sketches - Classic film duo, Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall
I was going to make these earlier but my computer kept crashing because of the summer heat x-x;; But anyways, I feel like i didn’t really capture their likeness (same goes for my previous drawings :z)… it’s always the toughest part to do.
"He was too old for me, he’d had three wives, he drank, he was an actor and he was goyim," Bacall wrote in her autobiography of her prime passion. All that meant nothing to the slinky 19-year-old model who met the 44-year-old star while filming To Have and Have Not. They wed in 1945 (Bogie coolly muttered "hello, baby" at the end of the ceremony), and the two embarked on several delirious years running late with the Hollywood Rat Pack, saving time for two children. "Bogie and I were ridiculous, holding hands like teenagers….we mooned and swooned, we really loved," Bacall has said. The honeymoon ended in January 1957 when Bogart died of cancer. Wrote Bacall: "No one has written a romance better than we lived it." —People magazine
And our tears flowed like wine…
Lauren Bacall, you’ll be remembered.
On this day in 1906, a screen legend was born…paying tribute to one of the great auteurs of Classic Hollywood, Mr. Billy Wilder! (June 22, 1906 - March 27, 2002)
