She was 19 years old when she appeared in To Have and Have Not with the great Humphrey Bogart. Bogey and Bacall went on to get married and make some of the most memorable films in history. Their onscreen chemistry was simply amazing.
This is the famous "You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow" scene from To Have and Have Not released in 1944, when again, Lauren Bacall was 19 years old.
"Slim" was Bogart's nickname for her on and off screen.
Here are some clips and photos:

Dark Passage (1947)
Key Largo (1948)
Ms. Bacall is quoted as saying: "I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that."
RIP Lauren Bacall. As my late great dad used to say "They don't make 'em like they used to."
