Omigosh. She was so beautiful, intelligent, classy woman. R.I.P. and on to her next journey.

Lauren Bacall DID swing both ways. Not a big deal. Most did.

RichardJun 1, 2010

Even though he is on the list I dont think Lauren liked Frank Sinatra very much. I think it was Laren who first came up with the term the Rat pack,to describe, Frank, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Sintara was a racist and a friend of the mafia. Alec Guinness(who is not on the list) had a big soft spot for Lauren,as he often called her by her real name Betty. She was friends with Alistair Cooke too!

Who the heck is Betty Kelly? I just googled that encounter and there`s no evidence of it except here. Lauren Bacall didn`t swing both ways. WTF?
