Wow.

There's two down in as many days..

Should consider getting a wee bit worried.

Rut-roh, celebrity triple threat achieved (if you count the GoT's actor).
 
2014-08-12 07:53:00 PM  
Ugh. She was the best with Humphrey Bogart in the radio series they did together called Bold Venture.
 
2014-08-12 07:55:58 PM  
89 is a pretty good run for anybody.
 
2014-08-12 07:56:21 PM  
That blows.

I think we need another Oscar nominated for the trifecta.
 
2014-08-12 07:56:37 PM  
Alright, who's the third gonna be?

Dammit Daily Show, why are you on break? This shiat always happens when you're on break. Just stop taking vacations already.
 
2014-08-12 07:57:10 PM  
She had it all.
 
2014-08-12 07:57:36 PM  
Damn.

That narrows the field considerably.

Loved her in "The Soprano's".

Sorry, girl. You're not going to upstage Williams!

Bacall is the only Oscar winner to be married to two other winners (Bogart and Robards).

Sensing failed baseball reporter typing here....

While sad, this is not really shocking. She was 89-years-old. She lived a long and successful life.
 
2014-08-12 08:02:42 PM  
RIP classy lady.
 
2014-08-12 08:02:47 PM  
When I was a kid, learning about 40s, I remember thinking how absolutely sculpted and perfect she was for that period. Then I learned how crabby she was.

I recall reading how when Bogart plucked her from obscurity, how he had to teach her manners. Apparently her diction had a lot of 'dis' and 'dat'. Well, they don't call Hollywood the Dream Factory for nothing.
 
2014-08-12 08:03:06 PM  
Just pucker up and blow.  RIP Ms. Bacall, sexy and classy are an attractive combination.
 
2014-08-12 08:03:09 PM  
I was once caught in traffic and I'm pretty sure I caught a glimpse of her.
 
2014-08-12 08:03:14 PM  

Shostie: Sorry, girl. You're not going to upstage Williams!


In movie star terms they weren't even in the same universe.
 
2014-08-12 08:03:22 PM  
Now I have to dig out my copy of The Big Sleep. Probably the best example of film noir ever made. Philip Marlowe is the best film noir detective.
 
2014-08-12 08:03:40 PM  
Aw, that's a shame. I admired her.

Then again, 89, that's a good lifetime.

What a lovely lady. RIP
 
2014-08-12 08:05:29 PM  
She was sexier walking across a floor fully clothed delivering a line than most of today's actresses are completely naked in bed in flagrante.  Time to go see who is streaming Key Largo.
 
2014-08-12 08:06:18 PM  
That's two saving throws that came up a 1. Dice are cold this game, will see if we can get the DM to change out this set.

so it always happens in 3's. Who is gonna be the third celebrity to bite it?

I'm putting my vote in for DeVito.

Such a classy lady and one of my favorite actresses too :-(

Damn....just damn.

She was great in Mrs. Doubtfire.

It could be narrowed down even more.  Both Williams and Bacall were nominated in the 1990s.

She should have stayed in the car, dammit.
