The 89-year-old star of classic films The Mirror Has Two Faces, How to Marry a Millionaire and Key Largo was married to two other big screen greats, Humphrey Bogart and Jason Robards, and she famously romanced Frank Sinatra.

Bacall first emerged as a leading lady opposite Bogart in 1944’s To Have and Have Not and enjoyed success onstage as well as on the big screen.

She scored Tony Awards for her Broadway shows Applause and Woman of the Year, and Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for her role in 1996’s The Mirror Has Two Faces.

She received an honorary Academy Award in 2009.

Born Betty Joan Perske in New York, Bacall’s mother was a Romanian immigrant and her father was a New Jersey salesman.
