Hollywood Remembers the Legendary Lauren Bacall

With the news of Lauren Bacall's passing yesterday, the film community is honoring her memory in the best ways possible. Here are a few of our favorite tributes, in traditional media as well as social.


It's been a tough week for cinephiles, made only harder with the news of Lauren Bacall's passing late last night. Across industries, movie lovers gathered on social media to remember the legend by reflecting on her work, style, life and personality. We've scoured the internet and found the best pieces honoring the legendary Lauren Bacall.
