First Day Cover signed: "Lauren Bacall", 6½x3½.

ArtCraft cachet at left picturing Al Jolson in The Jazz Singer, the first talking picture. 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. After his death in 1957, Bacall made Designing Women (1957) and The Gift of Love (1958), but virtually dropped out of sight until 1970, when she made a triumphant comeback in the stage production of Applause. Bacall's later films include Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Shootist (1976) and The Fan (1981). The actress was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), winning a Golden Globe in the same category. The previous year, she had received an Honorary Award from the French Academy of Cinema. To this day she continues to charm audiences with her trademark dancer's eloquence of movement, suggestive twinkle in her eye and fierce female shrewdness. Fine condition.
