As if the news of Robin Williams’ passing wasn’t enough to bear, the news reported that the iconic actress, Lauren Bacall, had died the very next day.

Lauren Bacall (1924-2014) died due to a massive stroke and was an actress famous for being the wives of Humphrey Bogart and Jason Robards as well as for acting in popular films such as To Have and Have Not, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Shootist, and my personal favorite, Murder on the Orient Express.

Good-bye, Mrs. Caroline Hubbard!

Her career even continued into the voice-acting realm where she lent her voice to characters including the Witch of the Waste in the English language version of Howl’s Moving Castle,

The Grand Witch in Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King,

  1. I didn’t even realize she did much voice work in animation films, like Scooby Doo. And Ernest and Celestine has been on my need-to-watch list. This gives me more reason to view it sooner. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Yeah, generally when someone who’s done voice acting roles dies, I like to remember them on the blog with a post.

      And I figured Lauren Bacall would make a good post, because not many people knew that she did any voice roles.

      Ernest & Celestine was a really good movie. Just note that Lauren Bacall is only in the English version of the movie, not the original French.
