Bacall's acting career could be best described as "right place, right time" or the idyllic lifestyle that any aspiring actor would want. After her parents separated when she was a child, her mother encouraged her to make it big in show business. Her [[StageNames name was changed]] and [[DyeHard hair was dyed]] (the name "Perske" sounded too Jewish, apparently) and her film debut was one of the most successful of the year. She appeared in four movies with Creator/HumphreyBogart, whom she married [[MayDecemberRomance despite being over 20 years younger than him]].
