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."

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:

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way
