Bacall & Bogart

Lauren Bacall was 20 when she married Humphrey Bogart who was 25 years older. The marriage lasted for 12 years until Bogart, a heavy smoker, died of throat cancer. By looking at their photos it's hard to imagine they are 1/4 of a century apart in terms of age. Both are New Yorkers -- Bacall is the daughter of two Jewish immigrants, and Bogart was the son of a wealthy surgeon and a successful graphic artist.
