In 1948, Ms. Bacall had what she termed

“one of my happiest movie experiences”

when she starred with Bogart, Lionel Barrymore,

Edward G. Robinson and Claire Trevor

in John Huston’s crime thriller “Key Largo.”

 

It was their last film together.

Lauren Bacall        1924-2014

 

actress

whose provocative glamour

elevated her to stardom

in Hollywood’s golden age

and whose lasting mystique

put her on a plateau

in American culture

that few stars reach

 

(...)

 

With an insinuating pose

and a seductive,

throaty voice

— her simplest remark

sounded like a jungle

mating call,

one critic said —

Ms. Bacall

shot to fame in 1944

with her first movie,

Howard Hawks’s adaptation

of the Ernest Hemingway novel

“To Have and Have Not,”

playing opposite

Humphrey Bogart,

who became her lover

on the set

and later her husband.

 

(...)

 

In 1947,

as the House Un-American

Activities Committee

investigated Americans

suspected of Communism,

Ms. Bacall and Bogart

were among 500

Hollywood personalities

to sign a petition

protesting what they called

the committee’s attempt

“to smear

the motion picture industry.”

 

Investigating individual

political beliefs,

the petition said,

violated

the basic principles

of American democracy.

 

The couple

flew to Washington

as part of a group known

as the Committee

for the First Amendment,

which also include

Danny Kaye,

John Garfield,

Gene Kelly,

John Huston,

Ira Gershwin

and Jane Wyatt.

 

“I am an outraged

and angry citizen who feels

that my basic civil liberties

are being taken away from me,”

Bogart said in a statement.
