    Lauren Bacall dies at 89

    Reports: Legendary actress Lauren Bacall has died at 89

    Legendary film star Lauren Bacall has died, reports Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. She was 89. Both outlets are reporting she died of a suspected stroke Tuesday morning at her New York home.

    Known for her husky voice and sizzling looks, Bacall started out as a model and then broke out as a leading lady opposite Humphrey Bogart in her first film, 1944's To Have and Have Not. The two had a whirlwind romance and wed the following year, and a son and daughter soon followed -- as did more on-screen pairings: The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947), and Key Largo (1948). They remained married until Bogart's death from throat cancer in 1957.

    Bacall's other notable films include 1950's Young Man With a Horn and 1953's How To Marry A Millionaire, in which she starred alongside Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe.

    She also experienced success on stage, starring on Broadway in Goodbye, Charlie (1959) and Cactus Flower (1965), and won Tony Awards for her performances in Applause (1970) and Woman of the Year (1981).

    To Have and Have Not was fantastic, as was Key Largo.

    This is so sad......another great one gone.....most young people don't know who she is. I was a teenager and she was my first love...She was popular in the forties and fifties.

    God bless her and may she rest in peace.

    When I was young, I thought she was the ideal of physical beauty in a woman.

    Great scene with Bogart but you will probably have to explain it to a lot of our younger folks.

    She was awesome. I'm glad she lived a long full life.
