    I hated her politics, but I could watch her movies all day long!

    I could watch her all day long! Without a doubt the sexist woman of the Golden Age of movies.

    I don't know anything about her politics but do believe that she was one of those rare women who grow prettier with age. She came from a time when celebrity wasn't a license to be a douche.

    ......a time, when it was up to the actors/actresses and the script, if a movie was a hit or not, not like today, when it's up to the CGI(?), if it's a blockbuster or not....
    Mind you, I enjoy good CGI(?) as much anyone, if it's there to help a movie, not to help mediocre acting.....ie, in that movie!

    Laureen Bacall was a woman of outstanding beauty and fascination.

    But in those times, she was not alone.....

    I first saw Veronica Lake in the movie Blue Dahlia and the city downtown had a power failure half way thru.
    Had to wait for TCM to come along many years later to see the end. She was a tiny little thing.
