Still from the 1958 film, The Gift of Love, signed by Bacall across her image
Printed photograph signed: "Lauren Bacall". B/w, 10x8 overall, image 9¼x7 (one surface). Captioned at lower margin. Still from the 1958 film, The Gift of Love, which starred Bacall as Julie Beck and Robert Stack as her husband, Bill Beck. Evelyn Rudie is pictured as Hitty, the young girl that the dying Julie adopts to keep her husband company after her death. Bill grows weary of little Hitty, who prefers a "fantasy world" to real life, and returns her to the orphanage, making it necessary for Julie's spirit to intervene to set things right. Bacall made this film the year after the death of her husband, Humphrey Bogart. 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) andThe 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 includeMurder 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. Toned. Corners lightly worn and creased, esp. on top right corner. Surface creases, file nicks at lower blank edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
