Kirk Douglas looks dapper as he arrives in his tuxedo to celebrate Oscars night - he was nominated three times but never won. He was finally given honorary Academy Award in 1996 for his contribution to the movie industry.
Humphrey Bogart and wife Lauren Bacall arrived at the 27th Academy Awards. They met on the set of To Have And Have Not in 1944 when Bacall was 19 and Bogart 45.
It was 1944. I was 19, brand new in Hollywood and under personal contract to director Howard Hawks. Now, Howard had told me he wanted me to be in a movie with either Cary Grant or Humphrey Bogart. I thought, “Wow, Cary Grant!” I’d already tested for To Have And Have Not and was going to be in it with, of course, Bogey’s approval. One day, I was going into Hawks’ office and Bogey was on his way out. As he passed he said, “By the way, I saw your test, we will have a lot of fun together.” Well, he was right about that!’
