Hollywood Screen Legend Lauren Bacall Dead At 89

Screen Legend Lauren Bacall has died. 

Known for her sultry looks and husky voice, Bacall became one of film noir's most famous leading ladies starring in several movies in the 1940s with fellow screen legend and late husband Humphrey Bogart.  

Together, they were known as "Bogie and Bacall," sharing screen time in films such as "To Have and Have Not," "The Big Sleep," "Dark Passage" and "Key Largo."  The two married in 1945 and remained wed until Bogart's death in 1957. 

Bacall later wed actor Jason Robards with whom she had three children before their divorce in 1969.  "How To Marry A Millionaire" with Marilyn Monroe and "Designing Woman" with Gregory Peck were also among her early film credits. 

Bacall earned her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1997 for her role in "The Mirror Has Two Faces."  She received the Kennedy Center Honors later that year, and in 2009 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented her with an Honorary Oscar. 

Family members say Bacall died Tuesday after suffering a stroke.  She was 89.
