TV Diary quiz: Lauren Bacall had class and it showed in her films


When news of Lauren Bacall’s death was broadcast Aug. 12, a bit of sadness struck me. Being a Humphrey Bogart fan, I enjoyed watching the films in which they appeared together. Even after Bogart’s death in 1957, Bacall continued to act on Broadway and in films. Here is a quiz about her career.

1. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for which film?

2. She played which actor’s wife on “My Fellow Americans” (1996)?

3. Who played Santa in “All I Want for Christmas” (1991)?

4. Who directed “Misery” (1990)?

5. Who was the detective on “Murder on the Orient Express” (1974)?

6. Who received the only Academy Award for “Murder on the Orient Express?”

7. She recently appeared on which TV series?

8. Bacall received two Tony Awards for which Broadway productions?

9. How did Bacall’s character in “To Have and Have Not” get the name “Slim?”

10. Who directed “Key Largo” (1948)?

11. Who played the obsessed “fan” in “The Fan” (1981)?

Answers: 1. “The Mirror Has Two Faces” (1996).  2. Jack Lemmon. 3. Leslie Nielsen. 4. Rob Reiner. 5. Hercule Poirot. 6. Ingrid Bergman. 7. “Family Guy.” 8. “Applause” and “Woman of the Year.” 9. Slim was the nickname of Howard Hawks’ wife, Nancy. 10. John Huston. 11. Michael Biehn.
