Recently, I watched ´The Shootist´ with Wayne and Bacall. Excellent performances all around. She did great job in her roles. RIP. And at least she didn´t hang herself with her belt. She died as nature called and not a coward´s death.

Bogart: Well, time´s up, shorty. Where´s my rabbit?

Elmer Fudd: Pwease, Mr. Bogart. I couldn´t get a wabbit. I twied and I twied.

Bogart: Oh, yeah? Well, I guess there´s just one thing left for me to do. [reaches into his coat pocket]

Elmer Fudd: Don´t! Pwease, don´t!

Bogart: [Pulling out a handkerchief to wipe his brow] Baby will just have to have a ham sandwich, instead.

Bugs Bunny: Baby?

[Bugs hops onto Bogart´s table; sitting there is Lauren Bacall]

Bugs Bunny: Remember, garçon. The customer is always right. If it´s rabbit baby wants, rabbit baby gets!

Count me out of her admirers.
From Wikipedia:
"Bacall described herself as "anti-Republican... A liberal. The L-word." She went on to say that "being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be. You are welcoming to everyone when you´re a liberal. You do not have a small mind."

Betty Bacall had a great career. Her four movies with Bogart (To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Dark Passage, Key Largo) are worth watching multiple times. To this day I still can´t figure out exactly what happened in The Big Sleep, but the author Raymond Chandler couldn´t say himself, so I´ve got some good company. Whatever happened, that movie is the essence of film noir. The Shootist (1976) was indeed an excellent film; it was John Wayne´s swan song.

She and Bogart proved that intergenerational marriages can be successful--they were 25 years apart. I thought she had class, and am sorry to hear of her passing. She was of Hollywood´s golden age. I´m glad we´ve got TCM, which is Ted Turner´s greatest creation.

Her book By Myself (1978), read out loud on public radio by Dick Estell, was excellent.

#7 Thank you. That was a good Bugs Bunny moment.

The other thing I´m reminded of is the song Key Largo by Bertie Higgins. It´s worth another listening today.

I don´t remember her being a liberal. I just remember that she stayed married to Bogart until he died. It´s as close to a real romance as Hollywood ever gave us.

I loved her work in films. I was less fond of her as a person. Aside from her politics, she ruined a book on tape I once bought. She was the reader and she intruded her own biography upon the narraive- a life of Harry Truman.

On the other I loved her portrayal of the conniving gold digger while Cameron Mitchell does a lovely turn as a tycoon who prefers casual clothes and greasy spoon burgers to a tuxedo and caviar. How to Marry a Millionaire remains a very funny movie. The look on her face when the gas pump jockey she has just married pulls a $1,000 bill out of a thick wad and tells the counterman at the diner to keep the change is priceless.

Another small but not insignificant fact: When the news of Bogie´s esophageal cancer got out in early 1956, the first one to send the Bogarts flowers--he was their political opposite and wasn´t an especially close friend of theirs--was John Wayne. Humphrey and Lauren really appreciated the gesture. Never forget that there are things far more important than politics.

She had quite a life. She really loved Bogart too. They had little in common (especially age!) but somehow made it work right up until his death. Rest in peace.

I like to watch old movies while falling asleep.

Last night it was The Birdcage. Tonight it will be How To Marry a Millionaire.

But honestly, mostly because Marilyn was fantastic in it.
I found Bacall to be caustic. In everything. Sorry.

This gal is pretty conservative but I agree who cares about her politics? I have known for decades she was a dedicated Democrat. So? She was old school spunky and I admired her for it. She lost Bogart but had two children to raise so it was back to work. She never whined or tried to pump the media for sympathy. She also never blabbed all her private secrets about Bogie! Good for her. I LOVE Key Largo. How To Marry A Millionaire is a real gem both Lauren & Marilyn were just great and gorgeous!

I read her autobiography years ago. She told the story about Bogey during his illness quelling a rumor that he was near death. As I recall, he issued a press release to halt the rumor that he was down to his "last martini."

It´s trite to observe that they don´t make them like that anymore. But they don´t.

I disagreed with her politics but admired her for staying off the soapbox.

And she endeared herself forever with her remark about the odious Tom Cruise: "Bogey would´ve b*tch-slapped the little punk."

Scott lays out below the farce of the indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry, but let’s not move on before taking in the proximate cause of political dispute, the conduct of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, who ironically runs the “public integrity section” of the DA’s office while obviously having no public integrity whatsoever. If you have 15 minutes of leisure and a strong threshold against disgust, take in these two videos of Ms. Lehmberg in action, first in her DUI stop (where her blood-alcohol level was .23), and then, even better, her appalling jailhouse behavior:

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
