TCM to remember Lauren Bacall with 24-hour film marathon

Legendary actress Lauren Bacall passed away on Tuesday at the age of 89. To celebrate her life and Hollywood career, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will air a 24-hour marathon of her classic performances, from Sept. 15-16.


TCM’s Lauren Bacall tribute marathon will include all four films in which she co-starred with husband Humphrey Bogart (To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Dark Passage and Key Largo), as well as TCM host Robert Osborne’s Private Screenings interview with her.

“Lauren Bacall was a wonderful and generous friend of ours at TCM, and a great connection to the ‘golden age of cinema,'” said Osborne, in a TCM release. “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.”
