"Every person I interact with is part of the person I am becoming."



I don’t know how it happened – it was almost imperceptible. It was about three weeks into the picture – the end of the day – I had one more shot, was sitting at the dressing table in the portable dressing room combing my hair. Bogie came in to bid me good night. He was standing behind me – we were joking as usual – when suddenly he leaned over, put his hand under my chin, and kissed me. It was impulsive – he was a bit shy – no lunging wolf tactics. He took a worn out package of matches out of his pocket and asked me to put my number on the back. I did. – Lauren Bacall on how her relationship with Humphrey Bogart started
