Bacall became a part-time fashion model. Howard Hawks's wife Nancy spotted her on the March 1943 cover of Harper's Bazaar and urged Hawks to have her take a screen test. Hawks invited Bacall to Hollywood for a screen test. He signed her up to a seven-year personal contract, brought her to Hollywood, gave her $100 a week, and began to manage her career. Hawks changed her name to Lauren Bacall. Nancy Hawks took Bacall under her wing.[5] She dressed Bacall stylishly, and guided the newcomer in matters of elegance, manners, and taste.

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Film | Nicole Kidman v Lauren Bacall (3173 words)
Lauren Bacall is correct: Nicole Kidman has not been around long enough to be a "legend." It was, however, terribly rude and ingracious of her to say so.
Lauren Bacall is a genuine movie star and a natural, effortless scene-stealer - no matter what else is going on in the scene, she is always the focus and it all pivots around her.
Lauren Bacall is without question the legend, and she was correct when she said that Nicole Kidman was too young to be a screen legend.
Denny Jackson's Lauren Bacall Page (735 words)
Lauren Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske on September 16, 1924 in New York City.
When she was a young school girl, Lauren originally wanted to be a dancer, but later became enthralled with acting so she switched gears to head into that field.
Lauren was away from the big screen for five years returning in 1964 to appear in SHOCK TREATMENT and SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL.
