Born Betty Joan Perske, grew up to be one of the most iconic actresses of the 50’s and of course, marry Humphrey Bogart.  She was twenty-five years his junior.  Bacall was one of the first actresses to get deeply involved in politics, once labeling herself the “Anti-Republican.”  Stylistlically speaking, she feminized menswear, running around town in double-breasted satin blazers and houndstooth prints.
