Lauren Bacall TV Movie Marathon Planned for Next Month
Turner Classic Movies will be all Bacall for the 24 hours leading up to what would have been her 90th birthday
Turner Classic Movies is set to honor Lauren Bacall with a 24-hour marathon of her memorable performances, featuring 11 films (including all four she starred in with husband Humphrey Bogart) and two airings of its 2005 interview with the actress. Bacall died Tuesday at the age of 89.
The tribute will run from 8 p.m. on Monday Sept. 15 through 8 p.m. on Tuesday Sept. 16, which would have been her 90th birthday. The 13 movies set to air include To Have and Have Not, her first film with Bogart; The Big Sleep; How to Marry a Millionaire; Young Man With a Horn; Dark Passage; Key Largo; and Sex and the Single Girl.
The 24 hours of programming will also include the two-hour TCM original Private Screenings: Lauren Bacall, a 2005 conversation that TCM host Robert Osborne had with the star.
"Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM and a great connection to the 'golden age of cinema,' " said Osborne. "Personally, I have to admit that she never failed to make my heart beat faster and my voice to stammer when we spoke. Talk about true star quality — that was Bacall. We are truly blessed to have had her as an integral part of our TCM family."
