RIP Lauren Bacall

Lauren Bacall; classy dame, quite a broad; never one to mince words, she always told it like she meant it. Starting with her appearance alongside future husband Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not, when she uttered one of my favorite film lines …
“You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.”
Bacall married Bogart in 1945 and they stayed married until he died of throat cancer in 1957. And though she had affairs with the likes of Frank Sinatra, and married again, to Jason Robards for eight years, she had made it very clear back in 1957 that Humphrey Bogart was the one true love of her life.

On the day of his funeral she slipped a whistle into his coffin.

RIP Lauren … Bogie’s whistling.

Bogie whistling? won't it be awkward running into Jason Robards too?
