Films are my passion and greatest escape. They take me away to a place that feels magical and makes me feel truly happy inside.

    “Soft and sleek – and looking – looking…Sloe-eyed – moving through the woods on a carpet of wet brown leaves (or anyway a carpet – the best – and long – and deep)…No sound – only a rhythmic beat…Honey dripping from her temples…Eyes unblinking – glinting green – challenging…Her texture bread-dough soft – and smooth and tawny – rising alive…He has penned in a lioness…No claws for those she loves – babies – mate – and even friends – a few…The best – the best (what the hell – they must be – they’re mine)…You are subdued by her lavish enthusiasm – lulled by the repetition of your own extraordinary virtues…You are king among mice – secure – remarkable – you have no equal…You belong to the kingdom of her children – she will protect you…But if you do not belong: look out…No zulac from the bazaar has a sharper knife – can use it without pause – direct – piercing…Love or Hate…Yes or No…Good or Bad…Victorian clarity…Soft – sun-serene surface – surface – surface – and under it – Woman.” — Katharine Hepburn

    ”I think Betty’s enduring appeal flows not just from her skills, but from her inner strength of character. From the moment when I first spotted that lean and lanky seventeen-year-old in the theatre in New York, I’ve been looking, as millions around the world have, at a remarkable woman. After so many years, I can’t explain our friendship, nor would I try - for a tough broad, she blushes easily. Let me just say that I celebrate our time together, I have the joy of her friendship and we all have the joy of her talent - We’re all still looking, Betty.”— Gregory Peck

    “Charlie and Ann Lederer gave a party for the Shah of Iran. When the incumbent of the Peacock Throne complimented Lauren Bacall by saying, ‘You were born to dance, Miss Bacall,’ she replied with gusto, ‘You bet your ass, Shah.”— David Niven

    “Lauren Bacall has cinema personality to burn. She has a javelin-like vitality, a born dancer’s eloquence of movement, a fierce female shrewdness, and a special sweet-sourness. With these faculties, plus a stone-crushing self-confidence and a trombone voice, she manages to get across the toughest girl Hollywood has dreamed of in a long, long while.” — James Agee

    “I think that sometimes she doesn’t realize how much I love her and respect her and respect what she is, as a woman and as an actress and what she’s contributed to her profession and her world. And I think that she needs to know that.” — Stephen Bogart

    “I think the qualities that my mother gave me include intelligence, humor, sensitivity, the ability to scrutinize people. I feel she gave me her sense of power and her sense of strength as she deals with the world around her. And her contribution to women and to women’s issues in addition to being to a loving mother. She has also, just as a woman, been a great example for me.” — Leslie Bogart

"You learn from hard experience. But that’s what life is all about. Puts lines in your face. Gives you headaches. Makes you nervous. But just look at anyone you know who hasn’t gotten hurt. There’s a big void there." 

Lauren Bacall’s mixture of humanity and grit, and her determination to excel, seem so overwhelming that it is difficult to imagine it coming to an end. “My idea is that I’m going to hang around forever,” she says, “and just drive everyone bananas.”
