Ah, Lauren Bacall. The wonderful Lauren Bacall. Don’t you just bloody love her? Endlessly and effortlessly cool, sophisticated, commanding, sexy, strong, independent, and, yes, that voice! THAT voice. Probably the most recognizable female voice in Hollywood history. Always imitated, never duplicated. I’ve tried to impersonate her once, you know, the ‘you know how to whistle’ line, didn’t work, but hey, I tried. Oh and I share my birthday with her, so YAY! Very proud of that. I’d like to think that we would have had joint birthday parties in New York City with all our movie star friends and all and then we’d watch The Big Sleep (1946) and try to figure out what in the world is going on in that movie. That’d be so awesome.
