  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Lauren Bacall vintage movie posters from her critically acclaimed catalog of one of the timeless cinematic performances.

    Lauren Bacall was an American actress best known for her portrayals of provocative women who hid their soft heart beneath a layer of hard-edged pragmatism. She was also known for her distinctive voice and sultry looks. The actress was titled the 20th greatest female star of classic Hollywood cinema by the American Film Institute.

    Lauren Bacall's real name was Betty Joan Perske. She was born in New York, New York, on September 16th, 1924. In 1941, she started modeling and worked as a theatre usher and a hostess at the Stage Door Canteen, which kept her near the Broadway theatre environment that she loved. She soon appeared in plays, such as Franklin Street in 1942, directed by George S. Kaufman; however, the play closed before reaching New York. Bacall made it to the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in 1943, where the wife of film director Howard Hawks saw her. She was then cast to play the leggy sardonic beauty in To Have and Have Not in 1944, directed by Hawks. This film debuted her as a leading lady at the age of 19.

    The famous Hollywood actress married her co-star Humphrey Bogart in 1945, when they worked on many projects together, like Dark Passage, The Big Sleep, and Key Largo. She also appeared in other successful films, including How to Marry a Millionaire, Designing Woman, and Young Man with a Horn.

    Lauren Bacall also worked in musicals and plays on Broadway, like Goodbye Charlie and Cactus Flower. In 1970, she made a comeback in Broadway with the musical Applause, which won her a Tony Award for Best Actress and Woman of the Year in 1981. She also won a Golden Globe Award for her performance in The Mirror Has Two Faces in 1996. She wrote three autobiographies: By Myself, Now, and And Then Some.
