Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Lauren Bacall died Tuesday at the age of 89. When she spoke with Leonard Lopate in 2006, she brought her dog Sophie to the studio. She reminisced about her career, her friendship with Katharine Hepburn, idolizing Bette Davis, and being "Bogey's wife." She starred in 40 films and worked with many Hollywood legends. She told Leonard, "I still can't believe I've known all the people I've known." Listen to the interview to hear her tell stories in her trademark sultry voice.
