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."

American actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead, aged 63, in an apparent suicide.

He was found unconscious and not breathing at his home near Tiburon, north of San Francisco.

He was pronounced dead at his home shortly after Marin County Police in California responded to an emergency call around noon local time.

Williams' struggles with alcohol and drugs were well-known, as he had often talked and joked about them.

His publicist Mara Buxbaum said he had been "battling severe depression".

The Sheriff's Office Coroner Division suspected the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, which was later confirmed.
