Legendary actress Lauren Bacall, one of Hollywood's classic screen sirens, died today after suffering a "massive stroke." She was 89.
Bacall brought a sultry, film noire sensibility to classic films like How to Marry a Millionaire, Key Largo, and the Big Sleep, which she starred in with her then-husband Humphrey Bogart.
Bacall's signature "look"—smoldering eyes and an arched eyebrow—was wrought with confidence but was apparently born from nerves.
According to TCM, the actress developed the iconic look "out of necessity" because she was shaking from nerves during her first screen test.
After Bogart's death in 1957, Bacall later remarried Oscar winner Jason Robards. The pair divorced in 1969.
In 2009, Bacall was awarded an honorary Academy Award.
She leaves behind three children.
