"my hand was shaking, my head was shaking, the cigarette was shaking, i was mortified. the harder i tried to stop, the more i shook. i realized that one way to hold my trembling head still was to keep it down, chin low, almost to my chest, and eyes up at bogart. it worked and turned out to be the beginning of the look." - lauren bacall, pictured here in a portrait from "to have and have not" (1944), on her memorable first scene with humphrey bogart in the film
