Lauren Bacall, 1924-2014. Rest in Peace.

Lauren Bacall in The Big SleepAnother actor I adore dies.  Not a big surprise, I guess – she was not exactly young – but it makes me sad.  I guess that when actors of her generation pass away, more than anything I stop to remember, and I’m reminded that I’m not young anymore.  So many great movies, so many great actors, so much I did years and years ago with friends I may have lost along the way.  I was looking at the Bacall filmography, smiling and remembering, and it occured to me that most these movies I have seen I no longer remember when, where, or who I was with.

Anyway. Time to watch The Big Sleep one more time.  And be thankful for all the memories.
