Another Hollywood legend passes...

Actress Lauren Bacall, the husky-voiced Hollywood icon known for her sultry sensuality, died Tuesday. She was 89. 

Her international fame began before the backdrop of World War II, in 1944 with her first film, "To Have and Have Not," which she made with future husband Humphrey Bogart. They married in 1945, had two children and went on to make more films together, including "The Big Sleep" (1946), "Dark Passage" (1947) and "Key Largo" (1948). Bogart died in 1957. 

Bacall's confident, smoldering expression -- the down-turned face and up-turned eyes -- earned her the nickname: The Look. 

Bacall won two Tony Awards and an honorary Oscar; she was nominated for three Emmy Awards.

She was one of the biggest stars of her time and one of the most famous women in the world.

She will be missed.
