We were blissfully happy, though like any married couple we had occasional rows.
One erupted on our second Christmas together, surrounded by friends. When I first arrived in California at 18, I was such an innocent that I ordered ginger ale and thought myself sophisticated. He grabbed it from the floor, so hurt and angry that after all his planning I simply dumped his gift on the floor and stomped on it.
In the wake of Lauren Bacall’s death aged 89 last week, on Saturday the Mail began serialising her memoirs, in which she described meeting and falling in love with Humphrey Bogart.
His first great success was as Duke Mantee in The Petrified Forest (1936), and this led to a period of typecasting as a gangster with films such as Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) and B-movies like The Return of Doctor X (1939).
Over his career, he received three Academy Award nominations for Best Actor, winning one (for The African Queen).
Bogart was born on Christmas Day, 1899, in New York City, the eldest child of Belmont De Forest Bogart (1867 – 1934) and Maud Humphrey (1868 – 1940).
Lauren Bacall has frequent emotional outbursts due to her fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness.
Bacall expresses herself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what her true feelings are.
Bogart began acting in 1921 after a hitch in the U. Navy in World War I and little success in various jobs in finance and the production side of the theater.
