Descripción

Mass market paperback. Full-color photo-illustrated wraps; pp. 251, [5] (ads). Inscribed by the author on the title-page, to Lauren Bacall, "For Big Betty -- Read the one about my grandfather. He's the one who used to say 'horse frocky.' Was very risque, for him. My grandmother would have washed his mouth out with soap. She also made him go out in the back yard to smoke a cigar. Yay-y-y, woman's lib! Love e'ermore, Jim / James Jones." (Lauren Bacall was born in the Bronx as Betty Joan Perske, and only close friends and loved ones used her real name. Hollywood gossip suggests that Bacall was close to everyone in the Jones family, but especially James Jones's wife, Gloria, an editor at Doubleday with a coterie of A-list friends, including Jackie O.) Covers lightly rubbed; corners a little dog-eared; text block somewhat tanned, as expected. Lauren Bacall (1924-2014) was an American actress known for her distinctive voice and sultry looks. Howard Hawks (director, producer, screenwriter) changed her first name to Lauren, and Perske adopted "Bacall," a variant of her mother's maiden name (of Romanian Jewish descent), as her screen surname. The young Lauren Bacall, worked as an usher at the St. James Theatre, and as a fashion model. She made her acting debut on Broadway in 1942, at age 17, as a walk-on in "Johnny 2x4." By then, she lived with her mother on Bank Street, Greenwich Village, and in 1942 she was crowned Miss Greenwich Village. Though Diana Vreeland is often credited with "discovering" Bacall, putting her on the cover of "Vogue" in 1943, much of the iconography surrounding Bacall she cultivated herself with the help of Nancy Hawks, Howard Hawks's wife, who advised Bacall on clothing, elegance, manners, and taste. Even Bacall's trademark voice required arduous training -- at Hawks's suggestion, Bacall worked with a voice coach to make her voice lower and deeper. Her screen debut as the leading lady in the Humphrey Bogart film "To Have and Have Not" (1944) made her an instant star. She married Bogart in 1945, and continued in the film noir genre alongside him in "The Big Sleep" (1946), "Dark Passage" (1947), and "Key Largo" (1948). She starred in the romantic comedies "How to Marry a Millionaire" (1953) with Marilyn Monroe, and "Designing Woman" (1957) with Gregory Peck. She co-starred with John Wayne in his final film, "The Shootist" (1976). Bacall worked on Broadway in musicals, earning Tony Awards for "Applause" (1970) and "Woman of the Year" (1981).
