"They´re both very cool, they´re very sophisticated, they´re very low key about it, they have a lot of wit, a lot of charm. But he is the master of the double entendre. He is the master of clever line delivery, that seems to be tossed casually over his shoulder. No one can handle him on screen - except Myrna Loy and puncture his balloon."
Jeanine Basinger, film historian

Happy 90th birthday, Betty Joan Perske, a.k.a Lauren Bacall (16.09.1924) -
“I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions.”
A lady with attitude. Early 1900s
According to my 6 year old sister, I’m as pretty as a bow in a pool hog. What the hell does that even mean?! Don’t know if I should be offended or flattered.
