A note from Lindsey:

As you all have probably heard by now, Lauren Bacall passed away yesterday at the age of 89. I considered pushing this SUTS post to tomorrow so I could instead publish a tribute to Bacall. However, I already had a tribute to her planned for September 16, which would have been her 90th birthday. I’d like to pay tribute to her then, in true celebration her life and lengthy career, after we’ve all had some time to process the loss of her. As easy as it seems to say that she lived a long, remarkable life and that we are celebrating that right now, our hearts are heavy.

It’s difficult for those of us who feel such close ties to the past to suffer a loss like this, as the field of living links to the era we so adore grows ever-smaller. But none of our sadness can be compared to that of Ms. Bacall’s family and close friends, to whom I send my sincere condolences.

From TCM: “Gregory Peck on Lauren Bacall”

Rest in peace, Betty.
