"Well, one day aired a film called Key Largo. I wasn’t familiar with this one but I certainly knew the stars in it: Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson, so I thought ‘Why not? I’ll give it a shot’. But then I was blindsided. I saw this face—this magnetic proud stare that just stopped me. ‘My goodness, who the hell is that?’ It was Lauren Bacall." -Kelsey Grammer.

From To Have and Have Not (1944).


When you look at Marilyn on the screen, you don’t want anything bad to happen to her. You really care that she should be all right…happy. - Natalie Wood

A lady from way back … quiet, gentle, gracious, and the sort of girl you’d like to bring home and say, ‘Mama, this is Marilyn.’
- Columnist Henry McLemore, 

One of the most unappreciated people in the world.
- Joshua Logan 

Fifty years on, we’re still watching her movies and talking about her. That’s not a dumb woman trust me.
- Lauren Bacall

She will go on eternally. 
Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Norma Jeane was always a butterfly. She was beautiful all her life, within and without. Like all beautiful butterflies, she had to fly away.
- Jim Dougherty

She was a nice calm and sensitive person. She put a lot of effort into her work and was caring.  
Lana Del Rey

She’s wonderful. Cosmological. I wanted to put a picture of her in my latest book, as a celestial object. 
- Stephen Hawking

But, like the beautiful flower she was, she bloomed and died…and so the cycle of life goes on. The Lord giveth the Lord taketh away.
- Bill Pursell
