Cat. #000420201: LAUREN BACALL

Beautiful 8x10-inch black and white portrait in her prime by Murray Korman, boldly signed in black felt-tip marker in the 1980s. In very fine condition. Elegant, smoky-voiced leading lady Lauren Bacall made her screen debut in the 1944 thriller To Have and Have Not.  It would be the first of several memorable collaborations with future husband Humphrey Bogart, which also included the noir classics The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947) and Key Largo (1948). The actress went on to star in the Marilyn Monroe comedy How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) before taking a long hiatus from Hollywood, prompted by sadness surrounding Bogie's death in 1957. She thereafter alternated between Broadway and Tinseltown, popping up in films like Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Fan (1981), Misery (1990), and The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.
