When model LAUREN BACALL (1924-2014) graced the cover of "Harper's Bazaar" in 1943, Mrs. Howard Hawks was impressed with what would come to be known as "The Look" and she told her producer-director husband about the sultry beauty. From the time Bacall made her Hollywood debut in Hawks' To Have and Have Not (1944) with Humphrey Bogart, both film critics and moviegoers fell in love with the beauty with the throaty voice. Lauded as the most sensational newcomer of the year, Bacall found both fame and love, falling in love and marrying Bogie, with whom she would star in three more films. RED SKELTON (1913-1997) performed on radio, in television, films and on stage. He was also a renowned oil painter of clowns, a designer of dishes and an expert at creating bonsai trees. He also composed about 8,000 songs, including the theme for the film Made in Paris (1966). Among the characters Skelton created and popularized on his television series, which aired from 1951-1971, were Freddie the Freeloader, Clem Kadiddlehopper, San Fernando Red, Junior the Mean Widdle Kid and the seagulls Gertrude and Heathcliffe. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
