Betty Joan Perske was 18 years old when she met 44 year-old screen star Humphrey Bogart on the sound stage of 'To Have and Have Not' at Warner Studios in Burbank, California, in 1942. Her picture had landed on the cover of a fashion magazine called Harpers which came in the mail to Warner film director Howard Hawks home- where his wife Slim picked it up and mentioned "You know what Howard, this might be the girl you're looking for for that movie". She was sent a letter and a train ticket to Hollywood, got a chance, worked for it, and was chosen as the leading lady in his upcoming movie, which turned out to be a smash hit. She became known to the world as Lauren Bacall- and she married Humphrey Bogart, enjoying one of Hollywood's truest marriages for 12 years until his early death. This is their story.
