Bogie & Bacall : Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14, 2009

Happy Valentines Day!

I loved hearing everyone's favorite Tracy/Hepburn films in my last post! It was so much fun to read the comments :) My favorite Bogie/Bacall movie is The Big Sleep-- one of my favorite scenes in any movie ever is Lauren Bacall singing in the nightclub... "and her tears flowed like wine, yes her tears flowed like wine. She's a real sad tomato. She's a busted valentine..." appropriate for today? I guess so!

Please feel free to post your favorite Bogie/Bacall movies in the comments again! Can't wait to hear what everyone thinks :)

Another great sketch. As much as I like "The Big Sleep" (a lot), I'd have to go with "To Have & Have Not."

Have a good one!

This is a wonderful sketch. You captured LB's hair very well - sheen and all. I enjoy The Big Sleep too, but like John, To Have and Have Not is my favorite. The dress that Lauren Bacall wears in her first singing scene in the film is amazing. Everytime I watch TH&HN, I try to figure out how to reproduce it. :)

Oh my, that looks exactly like Bogie!!!

For me, I'd have to say that The Big Sleep and To Have and Have Not are tied. The dialogue between them always puts a beaming smile on my face. Though The Big Sleep was very confusing, I still have to say that I adored it and the last scene very, very much!

Bogie: "What's wrong with you?"
Baby: "Nothing you can't fix."

Quel love story! Happy V-Day!!

Nothing says love and romance like Bogart and Bacall! Beautiful drawing. I'm so impressed with the detail and how prolific you are in your work.
