I remember picking up Lauren Bacall’s Autobiography back in the early eighties. It was my Grandmothers book. My grandmother was a pretty hard nosed women and two of her favorite actors were John Wayne and Lauren Bacall. She was also an avid western novel reader and would pass the books on to me. So, If she like Lauren Bacall I had to read the book. What I like about Lauren Bacall was she was part of a time when strong women were really strong and not whining little nerds. Like Katherine Hepburn, Lauren didn’t seem to be afraid to say what she thought anytime anywhere. Just read any interview with her.
A self proclaimed liberal who was good friends with the self proclaimed conservative, John Wayne.
These were real people with grit and we sure do need those type more than ever now. Another good one gone.
