Lauren Bacall: Now there's a lady I would have loved to get stranded on an island with- foxy eyes and class!
I read a very interesting book last year by Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall's son Steven Bogart, In Search of My Father. I heartily recommend it. Lauren Bacall is painted by him in a far different light than I anticipated. She is depicted very much as unaffectionate, a perfectionist, and though this is a weird term to call a woman, a stuffed shirt. One thing he said that I recall was (sic) "My mother wasn't a fair weather friend. She was a foul weather friend." He explained that only time she was warm and supportive was when something went wrong in his life.
