Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske) was 89, but for the fans of classic Hollywood films, she would forever be remembered for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks that were first heard and seen in her 1944 screen debut To Have and Have Not, when she famously met Bogart and "taught him how to whistle."
