Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Lauren Bacall was her stage name, but what was her actual birth name?

Answer: Betty

She was born Betty Joan Perske but adopted her mother's maiden name of Bacall when her parents divorced. When she signed her first personal contract in Hollywood, she took the name of Lauren Bacall.
2. In this film, Bacall plays Cathy Grainger in a story about refugees fleeing communist China. What is this 1955 film, in which John Wayne (as Captain Tom Wilder) plays Bacall's love interest?

Answer: Blood Alley

"Blood Alley" was originally to star Robert Mitchum, but according to IMDb or Internet Movie Database, he was fired. Humphrey Bogart was offered the part but wanted too much money. Instead, John Wayne took the role, and it would be the first of two Wayne/Bacall movies ("The Shootist" being the second).
3. Based on her work for Director Howard Hawks, Bacall's personal contract was sold to a major studio. What was this studio, that was also responsible for such wide ranging hits such as "Casablanca" and "Goodfellas" and also that "wascally wabbit" Bugs Bunny?

Answer: Warner Brothers

As described by Bacall in her autobiography "By Myself", Bacall's photos in "Harper Bazaar" led to interest in her by Howard Hawks as well as producers David Selznick, Howard Hughes, and the Columbia Studio. After some consultation, Bacall signed a personal contract with Howard Hawks who would use her in the films "To Have and Have Not" and "The Big Sleep".

Her contract would then be sold to Warner Brothers.
4. Bacall's first movie was "To Have and Have Not". In this movie, the real-life flirting between Bacall and Humprey Bogart continued on the movie screen and led to WHAT famous quote in which Bacall (as Slim Browning) lets Bogart (as Steve Morgan) know she is available?

Answer: "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow."

The famous lines, "You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and... blow" was said by Bacall's character Slim Browning and is ranked by the American Film Institute (2005) as the 34th greatest movie quote of all times.

"All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up" was from Gloria Swanson (Norma Desmond) in "Sunset Boulevard." "Here's looking at you kid" was from Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) in "Casablanca." "Love means never having to say you're sorry" was from Jennifer Barrett (Ali MacGraw) in "Love Story."
5. With a combination of sultriness and nervousness, Bacall earned what title for her publicity photos, based on her trademark gesture of tilting her head down while looking up with her eyes?

Answer: The Look

As part of the film "To Have and Have Not", Bacall developed a visual style called The Look. In her autobiography, "All Alone", Lauren said The Look came from sheer nervousness, forcing her to lower her head down to control her shaking. Film director Billy Wilder supposedly coined the phrase.
6. What was Bogart and Bacall's second film together? It was based on a Raymond Chandler novel featuring Bogart as the detective Phillip Marlowe and Bacall as the oldest daughter of General Sternwood, Vivian, who was being blackmailed.

Answer: The Big Sleep

Supposedly "The Big Sleep" began production before a final script was approved by the director Howard Hawks. Confusion over plot points led to a telegram being sent to the author Raymond Chandler, who did not know who had actually shot Sternwood's chauffeur. Further delays occurred as new scenes were shot and the movie was edited to emphasize the sexual tension (both on and off the screen) between Bogart and Bacall.

The screenplay was written in part by William Faulkner.
7. In a movie featuring Bacall and Gregory Peck as couple who met and quickly married, they soon discovered that their lifestyles of clothing designer (Bacall) and sports writer (Peck) clashed. What was this 1957 film, directed by Vincente Minneli?

Answer: Designing Woman

"Designing Woman" would be the last film Bacall would work on while Bogart was still alive. With Bogart seemingly improving from his surgery for cancer, Bacall would begin the film and describe it (in "By Myself") as one of her "happiest film experiences".
8. Bogie and Bacall's last film together would share the same title as a 1981 song about the famous couple. What was this John Huston directed film, the plot involving a hotel, gangsters, and a hurricane?

Answer: Key Largo

Bertie Higgins' 1981 hit "Key Largo" would peak at number 8 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and used phrases such as "Key Largo", "Here's looking at you kid", "Play it again", and "Bogie and Bacall". The film itself would have WWII veteran Frank McCloud (Bogart), hotel proprietor (Lionel Barrymore), and his daughter-in-law (Lauren Bacall) being held hostage by the gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson). Add a hurricane as a plot point and this great movie should be seen just for the acting alone.
9. As den mother, Bacall reportedly named this group. What was this collection of Bogart friends called?

Answer: The Rat Pack

Although more famously associated with Frank Sinatra in the 1960s, it was actually begun as a collection of Hollywood friends who socialized together in Hollywood and Vegas in the 1950s. As Bacall described it, in her autobiography "By Myself", it was a collection of those "addicted to nonconformity, staying up late, drinking, laughing, and not caring what anyone thought or said about us".

Some early members included Bacall, Bogart, David Nivens, Frank Sinatra, Swifty Lazar (agent) and Nathaniel Benchley (writer).
10. One of Bacall's more famous movies (not involving Bogart), this film cast Bacall with Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe. What was the name of this movie, in which each one was trying to find a husband?

Answer: How to Marry a Millionaire

Although Bacall would declare she liked Marilyn Monroe, Bacall noted in her autobiography "By Myself" that Monroe was overly reliant on her acting coach and there was something inherently sad about Monroe. Interestingly, this film prevented John Huston from casting Bacall the female lead in the Bogart film "Beat the Devil".
