“. . . and I kicked her [Hedda Hopper] in the ass — most unladylike, but very martini-like . . .” — Lauren Bacall

Happy birthday to one of my all-time favorites — Miss Lauren Bacall turns 86 today. Recently I inhaled her autobiography, By Myself and Then Some (978-1-61552-554-6), and I recommend it highly!

    I recently saw her in the ’70s version of “Murder on the Orient Express,” I recommend it if you haven’t seen it (though I doubt it). It’s got EVERYBODY in it: Albert Finney (who did an awful job in this I think), Anthony Perkins (cuuute), Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Vanessa Redgrave, Sean Connery…and the rest! Bacall gets a couple good ones off…
