Let's Remember Lauren Bacall With One of Her Most Famous Movie Scenes


Today at her home, Lauren Bacall, a screen legend and one of the greatest actress in cinema history, died at the age of 89. This scene from the 1944 film To Have and Have Not is absolutely one her best performances in her long, illustrious career and it’s a fitting way to remember her legendary life and career.

Not only is the line that starts “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve?” one of her most famous quotes, it’s one of the most iconic moments in film history. You have to keep in mind, she was barely 20 years old when she made this film. Look how effortlessly she owns Humprhey Bogart (her future husband) in this scene. Actresses work their whole lifetime to reach this kind of nuance in their performances. She just had it.
