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:

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%
